|9:00am – 9:45am||Session 1 | Keynote address
|9:45 – 10:20am||Session 2 | Tail-Risk: Hunting down the Black Swan
The stock market rally at the beginning of 2012 was solid evidence of a return in investor confidence. However, the global picture remains gloomy and the risk of sudden black swan events remains intact. What is happening below the surface that could impact our portfolios? Are we insured against such events or will it be only due to painful hindsight experience that we research appropriate insurance strategies? Tail risk hedging is becoming popular but has a cost. What innovative solutions are available to investors and should this become an integral part of the asset allocation process?
|10:20 – 10:45am||Coffee break|
|10:45 – 11:30am||Session 3 | Private Banking in Singapore – the challenges of taking it to the next level
Singapore is commonly regarded as a leading private banking hub for Asia and benefits from having a developed and well regulated financial industry as well as a geographical advantage with respect to India and the South East Asian region.
Is this however sufficient to see Singapore maintain its lead into the future as the Asian private banking industry deepens both in terms of revenue and regulation?

|11:20 – 12:00pm||Session 4 | Spotting Growth Opportunities in all Environments – a focus on the second derivative
Regardless of overall market direction or current economic environment, there will always be companies and industries that have the potential to accelerate their future rate of growth. Focusing on prospective acceleration rather than absolute growth allows investors to look at an opportunity set that may not be clearly visible using more traditional rudimentary growth screens. Simply stated, this unique definition of growth, looking at the second derivative or the rate of change, allows investors to spot potential growth early and find opportunities that others miss. In addition, focusing on the change in the growth rate often identifies deteriorating fundamentals before the market discounts the offending companies, potentially providing powerful defensive properties.
|12:00 – 12:40pm||Session 5 | Are ETFs compatible investment instruments for private wealth management?
While ETFs continue to gain popularity among investors globally, the use of ETFs by private banks has been inconsistent. The low margin nature of ETFs has often been cited as a particular deterrent for more extensive use. The objective of this panel discussion is to take a more comprehensive look at how ETFs fit or don’t fit with private wealth management. We wish to examine this from different angles, including legal, risk, benefits and profitability. We also hope to dispel some myths and misunderstandings surrounding these products along the way to help private bankers and wealth managers to arrive at their own conclusions.
|12:40 – 2:00pm||Luncheon|
|2:00 – 2:40pm||Session 6 | The yield to come
2011 prompted a definitive return to fixed income with investors showing a preference for high yield bonds. But do these bonds share the same risk profile as other fixed income products or is there a need to examine the specific risks associated with high yield bonds? Do investors understand these risks and are they sufficiently compensated for assuming them? Which strategies have proved to be most successful in the current market environment? How big should you bite – What is the ideal investment size for these instruments?
|2:40 – 3:20pm||Session 7Presentation
Google’s recent investment into clean energy has put the spotlight on the growing penchant for investments in this space and highlights the extent to which similar drivers exist to make a compelling case for Renewable Energy infrastructure investments in SE Asia.
