In the current context, the information available to establish economic and financial forecasts may appear insufficient. Nevertheless, this information can be effective if certain analytical criteria are applied to it, that are valid both in macroeconomic and asset management terms.

The conference "New paradigms in the financial industry: the trade-off of knowledge" will see Prof. Dr. Klaus Wellershoff, co-founder of Zwei Wealth Experts AG, former Chief Economist of UBS and Professor of Economics at the University of St. Gallen, discuss these issues also in relation to his recently published book "Plädoyer für eine bescheidenere Ökonomie. Über Wissen und Nichtwissen in der ­Finanzindustrie" (Plea for a more modest economy. About knowledge and ignorance in the financial industry).
