Demographic changes, the movement of capital around the world and related political and economic pressures are changing the nature of global growth and the way in which investors think about risk and return. As entrepreneurs, executives and the intellectually curious gather for the ninth annual Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado this week, executives from U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management, will translate these long-term, transformative trends into key strategies for investors and the creators and stewards of family wealth.
For the fifth consecutive year, U.S. Trust is the exclusive financial services underwriter of the prestigious Aspen Ideas Festival, a weeklong series of programs, tutorials, seminars and discussion events focused on ideas, issues and intellectual inquiry. The annual Aspen Ideas Festival, presented by the Aspen Institute and The Atlantic, will be held in Aspen, Colorado, from June 26 to July 2, 2013.
At this year’s festival, U.S. Trust will look at trends driving economic change - including a resurgence of American innovation, a slow yet steady shift into equities and rising levels of wealth in emerging markets – that are reshaping the U.S. and world economies and financial markets, as well as impacting when and where individuals and institutions invest. The U.S. Trust 2013 Insights on Wealth and Worth ™ survey found that investors have a more heightened sense of financial security and are seeking growth opportunities, but they are overlooking several key, and often unseen, risk factors.
“The Aspen Ideas Festival brings together visionary leaders from around the world to share their insights and experience and debate a wide range of crucial global issues ranging from economics to education to health care,” said U.S. Trust President Keith Banks. “We are proud to continue our partnership with The Atlantic and the Aspen Institute and have a voice at the festival. We once again look forward to a lively exchange of opinions and observations.”
