As a thriving $140 billion international financial marketplace with a strong credit dynamics and an efficient platform for estate planning, many view Monaco as an emerging Wall Street of Europe. Which is why the annual Ritossa Family Office Investment Summit is an attractive meeting place for global leaders, family offices, private investors, Sheikhs, royal families and leading businesses.
The closed-door event with the theme “Connecting Minds & Investing for a Better Future” took place June 27 to 29 at the Fairmont bringing together people from 55+ countries representing more than $4.5 trillion convened with a powerful sense of purpose. Previous summits have raised $2.8 billion in investments for leading global start-ups, entrepreneurs, funds, and philanthropic endeavors.
“Recent times have changed everyone's life faster than ever before because our world has changed from one moment to another,” said Markus Lehner, Summit chairman and founder of Lehner Investments Monaco.
Lehner was one of several key personalities leading the Summit, including Prince Michel of Yugoslavia, Prince Abdul Aziz Bin Faisal Al Saud, alongside Anthony Ritossa, chairman of Ritossa Family Office and founder of the Summit.
A discussion was held on Monaco’s unique economy with a focus on its lack of debt, balanced budget, favorable tax structures, popularity for entrepreneurs, strong private banks and support of family offices.
An exclusive “fireside chat” on How Champions Invest Like Champions featured F1 racing legends Mika Hakkinen and Juan Pablo Montoya. Other panel topics included Fighting Our Climate Crisis, Today; Family Office Investor Insights; Legacy & Socially Responsible Investing; and Increased Giving for a Better Tomorrow.
