UniCredit investor conference starts in Kitzbühel
This weekend marks the start of UniCredit CAIB's traditional investor conference at the Hotel Arosa in Kitzbühel. The official conference programme will be opened on Monday morning by Willi Hemetsberger, Head of Global Markets at UniCredit, and Member of the Managing Board of Bank Austria Creditanstalt. Despite the difficult conditions on the stock markets, a record-setting number of participants registered for the conference again this year, with the meeting bringing together 70 investors from around the world and 40 listed companies to discuss current developments on the equity markets.
This three-day conference is a fixed date for participants in the Austrian equity markets, and this year Strabag, a newcomer on the market, will also be joining the event. "Especially in light of the current market conditions, investors are seeking orientation," explained Edi Berger, head of Austrian equities at UniCredit. "The uncertainty on the stock market in Vienna will probably drag on into the first quarter, which will prompt investors to remain on the defensive. We will have to wait and see if there is a sort of 'Kitzbühel effect' for the ATX again this year."
