Long-term thinking beyond short-term constraints. Mind the gap!

As the economic environment improves, the combination of current geopolitical tensions and significant long term challenges calls for taking a step back in order to analyse and understand these changes.

For this reason, the 2018 Amundi World Investment Forum will focus on long-term thinking, beyond short-term constraints. We will explore the future of growth in an increasingly multipolar world and address the long-term responsibility of financial actors on ageing populations and responsible investment, as well as their consequences in term of investment solutions.

Among our eminent speakers, we will have the exceptional honour to welcome Janet L. Yellen, former Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, as well as Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate in Economics 2001, Professor Kenneth Rogoff, and Professor Nouriel Roubini. Each will share and debate their insights that will set the scene to discuss investment implications.

Future of growth in a multipolar versus a global world

While global economic growth is back, the ongoing shift in economic and political power to emerging economies is at play. Is this improved economic environment set to last? How should one navigate the long term between protectionism and greater international cooperation?

Long-term responsibility

The ageing population’s dynamics weigh on the sustainability of pension systems, already hit by financial crises. Climate change related risks and ESG issues are increasingly acknowledged. These far reaching challenges are questioning the collective long-term responsibility of the financial community and the role it has to play to address them.
