International Structured Products Forum 2021

International Structured Products Forum 2021

The Swiss Stock Exchange

Lucerne, Schweiz

What a difference two years make! At our 10th anniversary in 2019 we celebrated high above Lucerne at the Bürgenstock resort the achievements this industry has accomplished and discussed and set our goals for the years to follow. In 2020 unfortunately we were not able to hold the Forum. The world looks back on difficult times – the global economy has faced massive challenges due to the Covid-19 crisis. However, we are fortunate to say that the structured products industry has mastered the pandemic well and has continued to observe a strong demand for structured products. The Coronavirus has certainly impacted all of us which makes it even more important that we gather together at this year’s Forum.

We are pleased to announce that the 11th International Structured Products Forum in Lucerne will take place on 7-8 September 2021, respecting the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health requirements. We all look forward to the personal exchange of thoughts and ideas and do hope you will be able to join us.

We are pleased to welcome Zeno Staub, CEO Bank Vontobel AG as a Keynote Speaker at this year’s Forum. He will be talking about the future of Swiss wealth management, followed by Jens Korte, Wall Street Correspondent on the US market and the raise of the phoenix. Please find the full itinerary here. The Forum registration fee remains unchanged at CHF 650. We would like to reassure you that in the case of cancellation, this fee will be fully refunded.

We are all delighted and excited to see you after a long time at the 11th International Structured Products Forum in Lucerne.
