Hosted by

Have a look back at L’AGEFI’s European Finance Forum

The European Finance Forum was held on October 5, at the Peninsula Hotel, in Paris.

Over 180 international attendees gathered this revamped event, formerly know as the Global Invest Forum, which scope included this year a deeper dive into policymaking, as well as the usual focus on European finance and investment.

The morning session was kickstarted by an exclusive interview with Bruno Le Maire, French Minister of Economy and Finances, followed by 4 plenary sessions dedicated to finance and policy.

During the afternoon, attendees were able to enjoy a selection of thematic workshops focused on investment, including allocation, infrastructure and impact, private assets for retail, impact & private debt, fund selection and thematic equities.

This full-day conference ended up with an invites-only VIP dinner, in one of the somptuous salons of the Peninsula Hotel.

Enjoy some selected moments of the conference!
