ABU DHABI, 3rd March, 2023 (WAM) – Experts and thought leaders from diverse industries recently gathered for a session titled “Growth Opportunities in Today’s Economy” as part of Investopia 2023 annual conference. The panelists, including Marc Antaki, head of Portfolio Strategy at Mubadala, Alain Papiasse, Chairman of Corporate and Institutional Banking BNP Paribas, Stéphane Monier, Chief Investment Officer at Lombard Odier, and Evan Siddall, CEO of Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMco), shared their insights on identifying growth opportunities in the fast-evolving landscape of the ‘New Economy.’

Antaki emphasised the importance of identifying priorities and opportunities based on global trends, with Mubadala’s vision for the next 5-10 years centering around emerging markets, new technologies, climate agendas, and demographics. Papiasse highlighted the crucial role of central banks in combating inflation by increasing interest rates and reducing liquidity, while prioritising financing secure sectors such as energy transition and the tech industry. Monier attributed inflation to accommodative monetary policies and supply chain disruptions and emphasized the need for policymakers to employ monetary policy measures and leverage automation technologies.

AIMco’s CEO, Evan Siddall, discussed the firm’s plans to diversify its portfolio and explore new markets in Asia, noting that the company has historically been too domestically focused on its investments. The firm is now evaluating opportunities for geographical diversification, with a particular focus on new markets in Asia. Additionally, AIMCO is exploring the possibility of opening an office in Abu Dhabi to expand its global reach.

The Investopia 2023 annual conference focuses on the theme “Envisioning Opportunities in Times of Change” and includes 35 sessions and roundtables, bringing together more than 2,000 participants, including investors, government officials, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs, from more than 40 countries. The conference’s sub-themes include Envisioning Opportunities in Today’s Economy, The Future of the Wealth of Nations, and Growth Opportunities in Times of Decarbonization.
