economic, social and political forces, enables successful investments into
growing markets. Their research groups these trends under three overarching
pillars – Demographics, Multipolar World and Sustainability. These trends and
related investment opportunities will be central to the topics and content of
the 2013 Global Megatrends Conferences.

volatility for businesses and investors. The Megatrends framework allows us to
bring our clients actionable, insightful analysis to help them respond to
these challenges and opportunities," said Paul Arango, Head of Credit Suisse
