1-2 February 2017

The largest financial fair in Zurich, providing everything you need to know about online trading

In times of negative interest rates, weak economies, high public debt and uncertain stock markets, the financial industry has a big part to play.

In addition to achieving the highest possible performance, it is also important to minimise risk. This means engaging in some creative thinking – the motto of FINANZ'17 was therefore ‘creative concepts’.

As the largest Swiss financial fair, FINANZ’17 had many attractions for private and institutional investors.

The programme:

Live trading seminars: compact live trading seminars. Our market analysts, Christos Maloussis and Andreas Ruhlmann, and our trading expert Matthis Hossinger placed live trades with full commentary, and explained the main characteristics of trading. Each session (in German) lasted around 20 to 30 minutes.
