High-Conviction: Investing in a world of Exponential Technologies (Econopolis)

We are on the cusp of one of the most disruptive, innovative eras since the start of the Industrial Revolution. During the breakout session we will explain how investors can take benefit of this nascent wave of technological innovation.

The worldwide launch of 5G in 2020 and the coming of age of AI will boost several other technological innovations, such as Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Autonomous Vehicles, Gaming, Medtech and many more.

In recent months, technology headlines were mainly in the light of the US / China trade war, but towards the beginning of the new decade we are strongly convinced that the force of technological innovation will take the upper hand.
