The Third Edition of ground-breaking research on the Swiss External Asset Manager Market produced by WealthBriefing, this year in association with SS&C Advent, is to be launched at a Breakfast Briefing in Zurich on 6 June at the St. Gotthard Hotel, Zurich.

Wendy Spires, Head of Research at WealthBriefing will lead a panel of expert speakers, including Paul Bebber of SS&C Advent, which will be announced shortly.

The research will examine the multiplicity of challenges that this sector has endured in the past few years as well as the myriad opportunities that are afforded it. This research series has proven to be among the most popular studies in WealthBriefing’s regular schedule of research.

Participants will benefit too from WealthBriefing’s global expertise in analysing the EAM market. Findings from our recent Asia research will provide comparisons from which useful conclusions will be drawn.
