What if there was a "cure" for aging?

Aubrey de Grey is one of the world's leading bio-gerontologists and widely known advocate of the provocative view that medical technology will one day allow humans to control the aging process. He has likened human aging to a car wearing down over time: as the body operates, it accumulates damage which can be tolerated for a while, but eventually sends us into an accelerating decline. The most promising way to escape this process is to repair the damage with precise scientific tools.

Of course, these tools and research on longevity need to be financed, and so we also speak about how investors and family offices can support and benefit from this emerging megatrend. Aubrey de Grey and other eminent experts such as David Sinclair, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, and leading investors in this sector will be speaking at the Longevity Investors Conference on October 1st 2020, an online event produced by Swiss serial entrepreneurs Dr. Tobias Reichmuth and Marc P. Bernegger.

We are further exploring investment opportunities in this field speaking with Marc Pentopoulos on how to outperform with skillful investing in smaller listed bio- and med-tech stocks while John McClure discusses how mastering both “Fear” and “No Fear” regimes can yield profits in up and down markets. With the upcoming US election and volatility expected to remain high, more investors are interested in strategies that can offer desirable anticorrelation and true diversification such as we discuss them in our Skillslab webinars.

Mitzi Perdue and Dominik von Eynern are sharing tips how to get to a lasting family business and why a working family governance needs family narratives.

Tobias Prestel sheds some light into the 50 Shades of Family Offices and Captain Brendan O’Shannassy explains why family officers don't need to panic when they hear, “The Family wishes to buy yacht!”

Amy Hirsch, a veteran with 40 years’ experience in alternative investments, is offering guidance how to approach virtual due diligence and Rolf Dreiseidler reflects on winners and losers of the pandemic when it comes to fundraising.
