The tortoise and the hare: Citywire Switzerland 2016 on film

The relative speeds of thought, investing and decision-making took centre stage at Citywire Switzerland 2016, where we examined the different approaches to working life.

Here Margaryta Kirakosian, reporter for Citywire Switzerland, pits the tortoise against the hare to find out if speed matters when running a race to achieve returns.

Our keynote speaker Dr David Bosshart explained how the pace of technology was increasing exponentially and humans had to become faster to cope.

The CEO of the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute for Economic and Social Studies argued that machine-led thinking may ultimately be faster than the human equivalent but could never replicate ingenuity.

Carl Honoré, author of the book In Praise of Slow, took the opposite view and argued that multi-tasking was making people inefficient. He advocated slowing down to see real results feed through.

Presenting bespoke Citywire data, head of European investment research, Saleem Shivji, compared active and passive investments and asked if investors were making the right choices at the optimum time.
