About the global investment forum

The Global Investment Forum is an initiative of ACE & Company.

The Forum is an exclusive knowledge and exchange platform bringing together the global private investment community alongside visionary entrepreneurs, insightful experts and leaders from the worlds of technology to politics. This annual gathering is an opportunity for participants to learn from experts across the private investment landscape and is enhanced by sessions about the major trends shaping our economic, political and social environment. Through interactive panel discussions, exclusive interviews, keynote presentations and breakout sessions, ACE & Company hope both guests and speaking participants gain insightful knowledge on key trends and developments affecting us in order to come to a shared understanding and create lasting partnerships.

The event is by invitation-only and attendees are a thoughtful blend of investors, entrepreneurs, c-suite executives as well as other experts and specialists. The event aims to provide a relaxed environment in which to network, socialize and learn from one another. We do not have any press at the event in order to foster open communication.

Every year the event takes place on Thursday and Friday during the first two weeks of June in the beautiful city of Geneva, Switzerland at the Hotel Intercontinental. Geneva is the home of the Forum not only because ACE & Company’s headquarters are found in the city, but also because of the city’s history of being a leading global financial center which is constantly reinventing itself and has brought about a unique ecosystem with a fertile environment for expertise, ideas, innovation and creation.
