There’s no denying that the pattern of equities and bonds in global markets has become more unpredictable than ever before. No wonder then, that family offices are turning to technology for help.

That was just one of the investment themes from Sir Anthony Ritossa’s exclusive 9th Global Family Investor Summit in Monaco recently. Supported by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, other popular topics at the invitation-only summit ranged from artificial intelligence to fintech, and philanthropy to female empowerment – to name just a few. 

But taking centrestage at Sir Anthony’s two-day gathering, was the acknowledgement that sustainable investing means caring for financial return, social responsibility and environmental impact.

Nico’s comments about improving the world through activities such as his Greentech Festival in Berlin received a standing ovation from the enthusiastic audience..

“This is the third time that Monaco has hosted this important Summit and the 9th time this Summit has been held around the world. Every time, it is larger and larger and the quality of the attendees is better and better. This year we had at least five continents represented and all attendees are all to be commended for their tremendous accomplishments, including shared vision, values and passion for the environment and sustainability. The greatest asset of this event is the quality of family offices attending and Anthony, myself and our Summit Advisory Board are committed to protecting these assets for the future.”

“It’s an honour and a privilege to have been appointed Chairman. Anthony’s summits are one of the best seminars in this field if not the best. The timing of the summit is perfectly chosen, right now we are living in a very interesting time. Interesting meaning that there are a lot of chances and chances meaning that you could do a lot of things wrong, not only right. Many crucial elements are shifting in the investment industry and in the family office space. The timing is indeed perfect and Anthony hits the spot with the subjects, the delegates and of course the location of the summit.”

The Top of Mind Topics for discussion included: Great Wealth is Created and Destroyed by Human Beings – Families must communicate about important topics, including monetary wealth, in order to move forward. Throughout history, families will struggle and have challenges yet they must stay connected, find a safe space and understand their shared vision.
