FINANZ'18

31 January - 1 February 2018

The largest financial fair in Zurich

This year's motto was "Facing the new normal".

From 2018 onwards, Switzerland’s financial fair will only be open to professional investors. 2018 edition, which marked the 20th anniversary of the event, took place in the StageOne event hall in Zurich-Oerlikon. 

Finanz'18 offered many attractions with approximately 100 exhibitors from the banking and finance industry. Visitors were able to enjoy many panels with experts, and network with like-minded visitors. IG Bank was proud to be part of this event, demonstrating how we could be the answer for investors looking for opportunities in online trading.

The motto of the fair was ‘Facing the new normal’. Visitors discovered the impact of advancing globalisation and digitalisation of the markets – and how to maintain your portfolio’s performance despite low interest rates.

In addition, Federal Councilor Ueli Maurer held a speech on the second day of the fair.
