Investors and Business Leaders Convene in Shanghai to Discuss “Value Creation in an Age of Disruption”

26 October 2018, Shanghai – The Asia Investment Conference (“AIC”) was held at the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai. This event is the second in its series, following AIC in Singapore earlier this year in May. The conference is jointly organized by IJK Capital Partners and the United Business Institutes (“UBI”).

This year’s event in Shanghai is represented by firms with combined assets of over USD 2.0 trillion, among them – institutional investors, private equity firms, family offices, investment and advisory professionals as well as numerous C-suite executives. The diversity of investors and business leaders present created a platform for delegates to gain insights into the multiple disruption trends taking place, as well as how major institutions and sophisticated investors are positioning themselves to create and capture value in the region.

Jenny Xia, Dean of United Business Institutes commented that “Being at the forefront of knowledge is critical to us – both as an institution as well as for our students. We are proud to be one of the co-organizers and have the opportunity to showcase the success stories of our alumni at this event. The theme of the conference is timely, as the education industry itself is also facing disruption.”

With over 200 delegates in attendance, AIC also provided ample opportunities for interaction amongst delegates, with the conference kicking off with pre-event evening drinks at the rooftop of the Shanghai History Museum along Shanghai’s West Nanjing Road, followed by a full day of thought-provoking presentations and engaging panel discussions. In addition to disruption from the technology perspective, other topics discussed included disruption in the banking, retail, real estate, and healthcare sectors.
