- “Private Equity Investment Opportunities During an Economic Downturn – should you: Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful?” – hosted by Nitay-Yair Levi, Managing Director, Koenig Heritage
Australia is facing uncertain economic times with some arguing that we are heading into a recession.

- Freedom From Wealth and Aging – hosted by Charles Lowenhaupt, G3 Family Advisor; Chairman and Founder, Lowenhaupt Global Advisors
What should aging wealth holders do to ensure their golden years are truly golden?

In this session, family office expert Charles Lowenhaupt answers these questions and offers perspective about the aging debate among wealth holders, family members and service providers. Charles draws on his family’s more than 100 years of experience working with individuals and families of significant wealth. He offers a framework for managing the complexities of aging described in his forthcoming book on the topic.

THURSDAY 31 OCTOBER 2019, 1:00pm
- Women in Leadership: An opportunity to support earlier stage and innovative companies in Australia that accelerate the advancement of women – hosted by Xing Zhang, Fund Manager, Female Leaders Fund, Australian Unity and Geraldine Barlow, Executive General Manager – Investments, Australian Unity
Increasing female leaders is more than just a case for diversity, it also makes good commercial sense. Based on research by Fortune and Pitchbook, it is estimated that only 2.2% of global venture capital funding went to female-led businesses in 2018 even though these businesses are more likely to outperform. The Female Leaders Fund has been established to direct capital to an overlooked segment of the venture capital ecosystem. For example, it has been documented by the Boston Consulting Group that female-led growth companies are more likely to generate financial outperformance in these following areas:
- Higher revenue with less funding (in other words, these leadership teams can do a lot more with a lot less).
- Strong investment performance over life of investment as measured by valuation.
- Higher return on investment, which has been estimated to be between 35-40% higher than all-male founder teams
Our vision is to demonstrate that gender diverse leadership teams deliver superior returns, fulfil diversity targets and supports local job and wealth creation.
- New Decade. New era. Investing Ahead of Rapid Transformational Economic, Technology and Cultural Change – hosted by Arvid Sachdeva, Senior Managing Director, Global Market Strategy, 13D Global Strategy & Research,
The wave of rapid change across not only economic areas but technology and culture will require a different focus in terms of investment. The global economic slowdown will have broad implications for CB policies, fiscal spending, interest rates, currencies and the precious metals. The global heavy debt burden will increasingly suppress global growth. How should investors react?
Areas closely watched with implication including the various indicators monitored from the markets and inter-market action as well as trade conflicts…and the heavy debt burden that is suppressing growth.
- Global economy (slowdown)
- Central Bank Policies
- Stock Markets
