For the final time this year, leading visionaries and investors shared their insights and expertise on topics that will ultimately shape the world’s future.
Sir Anthony Ritossa’s 13th Global Family Office Investment Summit was held live, in person in Dubai, allowing more than 250 esteemed guests to explore the ideas behind FinTech and digital assets, co-investments, and indoor farming and food security.
Under the High Patronage of HH Sheikh Saqer Bin Mohamed Al Qasimi, the historic conference featured leading global startups, high-growth companies receiving funding commitments from family offices, private ruling offices and high-net-worth investors.
From investor concerns and rebalancing portfolios to addressing new changes, the UAE has strategic and reliable plans in place for the next 50 years following the coronavirus health crisis, which will allow the region to emerge stronger than before and act as a major global hub.
Held at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah in early December, the summit enabled thought leaders to discuss the reality of machine learning and artificial intelligence, which is expected to assist the green revolution; the importance of data as one of the most valuable commodities of the 21st century; and the new possibilities that arise through data science and health care.
Despite being met with the challenges of a global pandemic, the recent summit was one of the few events to be held in a physical space in 2020.
The true benefit of meeting face to face for business opportunities is an ideal Sir Anthony values highly, and its echoed by many of his delegates.
“A unanimous understanding is that the best capital raising, and long-term co-investment partnerships are sealed networking in person amongst similar-minded thought leaders in a safe ambience,” Sir Anthony said. “Our world, post-pandemic, is rapidly changing.
“By living in the present and adapting to our new reality, we come together to share the best thought-leadership on preserving our human capital and planet for our future generations.”
