Nearly 100 of the top Swiss fund selectors have already confirmed their presence to Citywire Switzerland 2014, which is set to be the biggest retreat organised by Citywire in the region.
The two-day event will feature eighteen top portfolio managers from renowned asset management companies.
This is as well as a former chief China economist for both RBS and JPMorgan, the founder and CEO of a London-based start-up focusing on technologies, and Citywire's deputy head of research.
