Finance Circle Outlook 2019 Fireside Chat


Dear all,

The Finance Circle will celebrate the start of the new year on 7 February. And of course we will talk about the new year with a few of distinguished guests in a low profile manner at a high profile location.
KIGC ("The Industriële Grote Club") will open its doors at 1800 for you to join the Outlook 2019 Fireside Chat.
Note that this event will be held in Dutch.

What will 2019 bring us in terms of stock markets. What about the slowing economy, the highly volatile oil prices? What to think about Brexit?
Will the Energy Transition take off big time and will you as an ordinary investor be able to enjoy the ride?

All this will be discussed with ABN AMRO's Hans van Cleef (Chief Energy Economist), Robeco's Michiel Plakman (Fundmanager Robeco Global Stars) and Actiam's Corné van Zeijl (Asset Allocator at Actiam).

Your own expertise will be included as well, as this will be an open floor exchange of thoughts, wie immer.
But joking aside, be quick and enregister as we only have a limited number of seats available.
Peter van Ees will host and moderate the conversation, and will be responsible for the right temperature.
