“The goal of this conference is for investment banking professionals to have an opportunity to see old colleagues, as well as meet partners from new member firms of the group, in an effort to build mutual trust. A portion of the conference is reserved for sharing local industry insights. I was honoured to be invited to present on the Consumer Sector Insights panel. We are pleased to be a part of this flourishing club with unique identities and collaborative mindsets, as everyone brings value to the table.”- said Martin Paev, CFA, Chairman of SORTIS Group.


Mr. Michael Moritz, the managing partner of Carlsquare, which hosted the event added: “The event is a necessity, the longing for seeing each other in reality is immense. A friend and client of ours, a real disruptor in Industrial tech, always makes the point: by the end of the day life is analogue. We couldn’t agree more. The world runs the risk of falling apart, multilateralism is threatened by irrational believes and cynic selfishness. The only lasting glue which helps to prevent this is trust and friendship. As many other things, these two elements need training and practice.”
