1. The new world order: Are we facing a new cold war?

”It’s the end of the world as we know it”, says Jakob Ekholdt Christensen, Head of International Macro & Emerging Markets, Danske Bank with reference to the significant rise of India and China, the declining influence of Europe, and the renewed tensions between Russia and the West.

2. The future of the EU: More or less integration?

Brexit, EU Parliament vote and huge economic problems for several members of the eurozone. The EU region is facing major challenges in the near future, and the Nordic corporate and institutional investors will have to deal with a future of either more or less EU integration.
