Capital Markets Conference 2017

Globes' Capital Markets Conference has been a dominant factor in the direct dialogue between the leaders of the economy and the capital market community in Israel. ‎‎ ‎‎The Conference discusses the financial reality, dilemmas and trends in the economy, in an effort to outline the public-economic agenda, as well as to map the expected circumstances, challenges and changes and how they are likely to impact the capital markets in Israel and worldwide.

The world is at a turning point: Brexit, Trump taking office and President's Putin domination in the Middle East are only the beginning of a wave that is already stirring the world, to be followed by the upcoming elections in France, Germany and so forth. The world as we know it is changing. The upcoming Capital Markets Conference will discuss the geopolitical transformations around the world and try to predict the outcome of the ever-changing economic, foreign and political policies and their impact on the financial markets around the world. The conference will also touch on investment strategies, the future of capital markets in an ever-evolving technological environment, Israelis' pension security, technological innovation and changing paradigms in finance, financial cybersecurity, etc. - all in an unprecedented and continuous environment of near-zero interest rates and immense liquidity. ‎

The one-day conference is attended by more than 1,500 delegates, including Israel's top executives in finance and investment, Israeli government officials, and other important decision-makers. The conference is covered by a wide range of local media.
