iQ Summer 2013, Hot-Spot East Asia

We enjoyed captivating analyses of Japan’s long march from Hiroshima to Fukushima; paralleled by the rise of China; their shared past; tension on the Korean peninsula; multiple territorial disputes.

Penetrating insight into this gripping trio was brought by well-known author, investment advisor, keynote speaker and business lawyer Dr. Karl Pilny, Germany's pre-eminent expert on Asia. With over 30 years of Asia - related experience and speaking fluent Japanese, Dr. Pilny worked for many years in Japan holding a variety of legal roles. 

Nearly ten years ago he founded the Zurich-based investment advisory company asia21, which provides asset and corporate investment advice on the region. In addition, he has written many text books on Asian investing, complemented by business thrillers set in Asia. Much in demand as a highly-regarded keynote speaker, he is known for his vision, humour and eloquence. We look forward to sharing his wealth of experience.

IFIT Fund Services made a gift to our guests of Dr. Pilny's latest Asian thriller, "Japan Inc." (the book is in German and if you weren't able to make it and would like a copy, contact Sarah Money).
