UBS Forum 2018

Come at its eighth edition, UBS Forum will stage in Milan on the 25th of January and in Rome on the 1st of February.

Keywords of this new edition will be: technology and innovation, economic inequalities, productivity and investments.

We are witnessing a technological revolution that is changing our lifestyle and our economic models. Yet, this potential is not being translated neither into greater productivity nor in the improvement of economic conditions of most of the population.

What is going on? Why is this progress dispersed? And what are the consequences for the financial markets?
