Virtual Schroders Private Assets / Alternatives Conference 2020


In a financial environment with historic low interest rates and highly volatile markets, it is more important than ever that investors take a diversified approach to their portfolios. In the last years, Private Assets have become an indispensable component of investment portfolios, underpinned by its proven track records.

At Schroders, Private Assets are an integral part of our strategic focus and capabilities. On behalf of our clients, we manage approximately CHF 39bn* across Real Estate, Private Equity, Insurance-Linked Securities, Infrastructure, US Real Estate Debt and Microfinance globally. Out of these assets, over CHF 20bn* are managed locally in Switzerland by Schroder Investment Management (Switzerland) AG, making it an important hub within the Schroders Group.

Following on from last year’s successful launch of this series, we are very pleased to invite you to the second edition of the Schroders Private Assets and Alternatives Conference, but due to the current circumstances to a virtual and also interactive session. We will be providing you with insightful updates on the latest developments and investment ideas, covering the following asset classes:

  • Private Equity
