Newswise — The University of Virginia Darden School of Business is partnering with the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) to host the eighth annual CEIBS Private Wealth Investment Forum.

Held 8 April in Shanghai, the forum, which is sponsored by Darden’s Richard A. Mayo Center for Asset Management and the CEIBS Shoushan Centre for Wealth Management, brings together global business leaders and industry experts for a close-up look at the global investing and asset management landscape.

The summit occurs against an eventful backdrop, as years of unconventional monetary policy and a new presidential administration in the United States have left investors confronting an investment landscape with little historical precedence. Industry leaders will grapple with recent events and make sense of the uncertainty, helping to uncover future investing opportunities.

“Investors and business leaders are making capital decisions in a tumultuous investing era, as a recent run-up in global markets comes amid increasing geopolitical uncertainty,” said Professor Pedro Matos, academic director of the Mayo Center for Asset Management. “We’re excited to partner with CEIBS and a leading group of experts to help investors navigate this new terrain.”
