PRE-CONFERENCE ROUNDTABLE
Russia and the European Frontier Markets

In Partnership with: EAST CAPITAL

CHAIRMAN: John Moore-Stanley • Head of Investments, Wimmer Family Office, UK

Russia and the European frontier markets might have a lower profile than the Asian emerging markets and might not be seen as dynamic as the African frontiers, but for long-term investors significant rewards can be had. Although it represents as fantastic consumer story, it has proved difficult to access but this is what makes it such an interesting valuation opportunity.

This in-depth half day meeting will consider how families can access the opportunity and hear from families who have already been successful in investing in the region.
