Value Intelligence Conference 2019

This year’s Value Intelligence Conference for institutional investors will take place on June 4 at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich. We have again been able to line up a number of leading international value investors and academics. The presentations focus on ideas for value-oriented fund and stock selection. The event is targeted at long-term oriented institutional fund investors.

This year`s main topic: "Risks, risk management and opportunities in times of secular trend change". We will present you interesting "contrarians" who will find suitable answers to complex asset allocation and stock selection questions, even in volatile and demanding markets.

We are pleased that the following speakers have confirmed: Felix Zulauf, Zulauf Asset Management; Dave Iben, Kopernik Global All-Cap Fund; Caesar Bryan, Gabelli Gold Fund and Crispin Odey, founder and well-known contrarian hedge fund manager at Odey Asset Management. Furthermore, we present our advisory board member, Prof. Thorsten Hens, University of Zurich; Prof. Xuewu Gu, a designated East Asia expert from the University of Bonn and Boris Hofmann, research advisor and author of the study "The rise of zombie firms: causes and consequences" from the Bank for International Settlements.
