26th edition of the ODDO BHF Forum: a turning point in time, which requires new balances

ODDO BHF1 Minute

Paris, Frankfurt, Lyon, New York, January 5, 2023



The German-French banking Group ODDO BHF will hold its annual forum in a completely new format from January 5 to 16, 2023. The ODDO BHF Forum, one of the most important economic and financial events to kick off the year, will take on a new dimension this year: on January 5 and 6, this traditional event will once again be held in Lyon after a two-year hiatus due to COVID. On January 9 and 10, ODDO BHF will organize a capital market conference for German companies in New York in cooperation with Commerzbank. On January 16, leading economic and political decision-makers will discuss key current issues at the ODDO BHF Live Conference: The coverage will be five hours live as well as via a new ODDO BHF video-on-demand platform.


The events cover a wide range of topics, regions and players, giving investors the insight, they need to make the right decisions in a time of epochal change with multiple implications. After 40 years of low interest rates and moderate inflation, the time-honored models of the industrialized countries are being challenged and a new cycle is opening.


Philippe Oddo, Managing Partner, and Chairman of the Board of ODDO BHF Group, explains: "This new edition of the ODDO BHF Forum promises to be exceptional in every respect, as it takes place at a turning point in time. We are witnessing the beginning of a new era, a paradigm shift whose effects are not yet fully foreseeable and which deserves to be explored: on the one hand, in terms of energy policy, but also in terms of climate, international trade, defense and Europe's role in the world. What new balances will emerge? How will this affect investments and investment decisions?"
