The seventh edition of The European Conference by UniCredit took place on Wednesday, 21 October – for the first time in a fully digital format. Also this year, the European Conference brought together investors, issuers, business leaders and industry experts who presented their views on the latest trends in Capital Markets as well as discussing market and regulatory challenges and their impact on asset allocation in plenary sessions and expert panels.
We were very pleased to have welcomed our two Key Note Speakers:
Mr. Klaus Regling, Managing Director of the ESM, focusing on “Europe’s response to Covid-19”, followed by a dialogue with Erik F. Nielsen our Group Chief Economist & Global Head of CIB Research.
Dr. Jörg Kukies, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Finance, providing insights on „German Green Bonds – Successful inaugural issuance“. As sustainability has become a key element in our daily business but also in our private lives, recent developments and views were further exchanged in our ESG Panel “More than Green only: How ESG is evolving into a real triad” with Mr. Sean Kidney, Co-founder and CEO of the Climate Bonds Initiative.
The Chief Investment Officer (CIO) Panel hosted prominent international buy-side investors discussing investment strategies,.
