From 24 – 27 September 2018 the Baader Investment Conference was held for the seventh consecutive year in Munich, Germany, and was once again a resounding success. Despite MiFID II, the participant record was broken once again with over 750 investors from 35 countries and 194 listed companies from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The conference format, introduced in 2017 and based on four event days and the completion of the GSA-region by presenting companies from Switzerland, was again extremely popular. The conference featured over 3,000 individual and small group discussions, as well as almost 100 forum presentations. This gave companies - including 24 from DAX, 11 from ATX and 7 from SMI - the opportunity to present numerous local and international investors with a comprehensive overview of their respective business developments.
“The increase in the number of presenting companies and the positive feedback from company representatives show that our offer within investor conferences in the German-speaking region sets the standard,” explains Christian Bacherl, Member of the Board of Directors of Baader Bank. “This also explains the large number of well-known investors that regularly travel from all over the world to attend the conference,” adds Oliver Riedel, who is also a Member of the Board of Directors of Baader Bank.
Overall, the participating companies presented a constructive outlook on future business activity. Even though several representatives mentioned various challenges, managers remained optimistic to overcome recent macro or operational headwinds over time. Against this backdrop, most companies saw themselves well on track for continued profitable growth and were able to confirm the medium-term business targets set out earlier.
“The great success and positive feedback from the Baader Investment Conference confirm that Baader Bank took the right strategic path,” says the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Nico Baader.
The next Baader Investment Conference will be held in Munich from 23 to 26 September 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact us if your have further questions: conference[at]baaderbank.de
