The aim of Portfolio IWS (Investment, Wealth Management and Savings) 2017 conference is to provide information, with the help of foreign and domestic experts, for advisors, salespersons and those interested in investment opportunities about investments practices and opportunities this year in the background with such events causing market turbulences as the election of Donald Trump or the French and German elections.
The Hungarian savings market was all about government bonds and rising housing market investments last year, while domestic stock exchange increased significantly in 2016 as well. It’s not an easy task, however, to find domestic investments with more appealing yields than those of government securities; low yields pose a great challenge for domestic fund managers and private banking participants as well. With a lower risk taking, however, several investment opportunities can be found not only on the domestic market but on foreign markets as well. The question if stocks, bonds or forex investments give us higher yield options will be answered by market experts on the Portfolio IWS (Investments, Wealth Management and Savings) 2017 conference.
Moreover, banks, fund managers, brokerages and private banks will experience great changes as well, the introduction of MiFID II will fundamentally shake up sales and product development practices on the market, while protecting investors and providing them wider range of information will be underlined more than ever. With the new rules, domestic market participants might have to live with low yields until the end of 2018, so the importance of customized services and advisors who are familiar with market tendencies will increase even more.
