Baader Investment Conference: Record attendance numbers confirmed in top Extel rankings

Unterschleissheim, 30 September 2019: Last week, the eighth Baader Investment Conference took place in Munich, Germany. With more than 750 investors from 37 countries and almost 220 presenting companies, this steady growth demonstrates that the annual event is the leading industry platform in German-speaking countries.

The conference format, which was expanded to five days in 2019, proved to be popular. For the first time, companies from France, the Netherlands and Spain joined companies from Germany, Austria and Switzerland and made the most of the opportunity to introduce themselves to investors. The first Baader Small Cap day was also well attended on Friday, 27 September. In over 3,200 individual and small group discussions as well as almost 120 forum presentations, companies - including 21 from the DAX, 24 from Austria and 36 from Switzerland - presented numerous local and international investors with a comprehensive overview of their respective business developments to further strengthen opportunities, discussions and contacts.

The success of the conference was underlined by the achieved outstanding Extel voting results for its Baader Helvea conferences. "Swiss Equity Conference", which takes place at the beginning of the year in Switzerland, was voted best "Pan European Broker Conference" worldwide. While "Baader Investment Conference", hosted in Munich in the late summer, came an extremely noteworthy second place. "With our two annual conferences, we have succeeded in establishing leading conferences in Europe and setting the standard," explained Oliver Riedel, Member of the Board of Directors.

In contrast to previous years, most of the participating companies considered the current business environment to be relatively subdued. This was mainly the result of the ongoing uncertainty surrounding political pressures (trade conflict, Brexit), but also the unclear outlook for some key industries (automotive industry). However, many managers were confident that they would be able to cope with the current challenges with efficiency enhancement measures, which had either already been initiated or which are pending implementation. Against this backdrop, most companies felt that they were well on the way to maintaining their current dividend levels and to achieving profitable growth again in the medium term.

"Our Baader Investment Conference has since become indispensable to the financial sector and an integral addition to the calendars of many company representatives and investors - this is demonstrated by the steadily rising number of attendees and the consistently positive feedback," said Nico Baader, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Baader Bank.

"Both the quantity, and above all, the quality, of the international investors are essential for a very successful conference, and the new format we successfully tested this year will return next year," adds Oliver Riedel.

The next Baader Investment Conference will take place from 21 to 25 September 2020 in Munich, Germany. Further details can also be found on our website at
