As is well known, crises and difficult times do not always only harbor threats and uncertainty, but also opportunities - opportunities for change and immediate change. One factor in this change is crucial: resilience. We are not only talking about the resilience of investment behavior, but also about society and the economy in general. The Fund Experts Forum 2021 is also about resilience. How can we successfully defend ourselves against the prevailing external influences and turn them inside out to our benefit so that adapted investment strategies make the portfolio shine?

It is of great importance that risks and dangers for the portfolio can be recognized at an early stage using the right indicators and that they can be mastered through mature decisions in such a way that the construction of the portfolio can withstand external shocks. In addition to individual investment behavior, the event will also focus on global macro trends and the role of Europe in a post-Covid world.
