With more than 20 seminars spanning over 4 weeks from 24 August to 15 September, the Phillip iFest 2012 highlights 4 keynote conferences. Top financial experts from around the world will discuss what the financial markets hold in the next quarter and beyond.

“We think it is timely to organize an educational conference on Investment now that there is so much uncertainty in the global economy. With the Eurozone in disarray, the tenuous recovery of the US markets and slow growth in China, many are left wondering how they should invest,“ said Mr Loh Hoon Sun, Managing Director of Phillip Securities Pte Ltd, member of the PhillipCapital group.

“Phillip iFest 2012 is a rare opportunity for the audience to tap on the knowledge and hear the market outlooks and insights of these international financial experts,” he added.

The investment festival kicks off with Wall Street Weekend on 24 August, where successful author and prop trader from New York, Mike Bellafiore, shares valuable trading strategies and demonstrates how experts trade the US markets in a live trading session. He is also partnering PhillipCapital to conduct a training course that starts on 25 August, where attendees will learn the practical skills required to trade effectively.

At the Shares Investment Conference (English) held at the Rock Auditorium on 1 September, world-renowned investor and financial author Jim Rogers, along with other industry experts, will share exclusive market insights and appraise the performance of the markets and asset classes. At the Shares Investment Conference (Chinese) on 15 September, top investment experts from the Greater China region Professor Chan Yan Chong, Hu Li Yang and Louis Wong will evaluate the stock market performance and trends.

The Value Investing method takes centre-stage at the Asian Value Investing Conference on 8 September, where international best-selling author Mary Buffett shares billionaire investor Warren Buffet’s stock picking strategies. Co-organised with the Value Investing Academy, this event at Marina Bay Sands invites the audience to discover the key to wise investing and wealth compounding using this time-tested method.

With top international experts, the Phillip iFest 2012 aims to bring a series of enriching seminars for the audience to gain top quality investment knowledge. Building on PhillipCapital’s standing as a leading financial house offering multiple asset classes and developing financial literacy in Singapore, the Phillip iFest 2012 offers the audience a better understanding of the wide spectrum of investment.
