Shanghai Global Investment Forum 2018

Jun 27th 2018
Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund

The Shanghai Global Investment Forum will gather asset owners from across China to assess economic themes, investment strategies and governance frameworks affecting institutional investor entities and their portfolios.

China is the second largest economy in the world and the primary source of demand for many global companies and investors. As a consequence, the structural reforms underway are expected to drive a new era of growth and innovation within the economy and will significantly affect prosperity and investment opportunities not just in Asia, but around the world.

Amid expectations of lower returns and heightened volatility across many of the traditional asset classes, Chinese investors are increasingly looking to diversify strategies as a means of broadening out their portfolios and investing further up the risk curve.

Institutional Investor’s 2018 Shanghai Global Investment Forum will examine some of the key investment considerations for successfully diversifying investment allocations and strategies, both in China and abroad. It will also focus on effective investment implementation, trade execution, portfolio construction and highlight new approaches that foreign investors are practicing across these areas.


The risks and implications of an overheated domestic bond market


Identifying strategies for investors to mitigate fixed income portfolio risks


New developments effecting the Chinese pension system and insurance industry

Emerging infrastructure investment opportunities


Overall dynamics and fundamentals of Chinese and foreign real estate


The benefits of building agility into investment portfolios vs static asset allocations
