  Italian Political Risk
Lugano, 27 June - Palazzo Sant’Anna - 6.15 pm

Giuseppe Ricotta, CFA, FRM, Vice President and Portfolio Analyst on Lazard Multi-strategy Team, will present the economic and political picture in Italy.
As the political landscape in Italy remains fragmented and political risk remains high, with implications for both the Eurozone and the European Union, the discussion will focus on how the actual coalition government can tackle some of the key issues which limit Italy’s economic performance.
This event will be hosted by CFA Society Switzerland and CFA Society Italy.
