The economy, climate change, infrastructure - challenges for the German economy
The German economy is in a downturn phase. Signs of a soft landing have recently increased. A real recession may therefore be avoided. Nevertheless, the current economic situation will have to be assessed on a differentiated basis, as the slowdown in economic development is accompanied by structural problems. These are due on the one hand to global risks for world trade and technological developments such as digitization, but on the other hand are also due to the necessity of climate policy. The challenges of climate change are central and require the right choice of climate policy instruments. These include in no small measure the provision of infrastructure, which is generally perceived as in need of overhaul. The state of the infrastructure and its financing conclude the observations in this lecture.

Credit Special Opportunities in Europe – How to invest consistently across the credit cycle.
Opportunistic investments in credit can take a wide range of forms in a broad range of sectors. Most of these areas can regularly be overwhelmed with capital leading to sometimes exponential increase in risk and poor risk-adjusted returns. We will show how a broad mandate for credit opportunities can lead to significantly improved risk-adjusted returns through seniority in the capital structure. An the same time, the approach leads to relatively smooth capital deployment and investment opportunities throughout the broader credit cycle.

The world economy in interesting times
The multilateral world order has been shaken in its very foundations. The world's economic focus is shifting to the east, leading to confrontation between the major powers fought with the weapons of the economy, trade warfare, technology war and currency war. Europe, in principle an economic superpower, is still weak and deeply divided. The national debates on the reform of the euro, the direction of monetary policy and fiscal policy diverge. At the same time, structural issues such as low productivity growth, aging and climate change become more apparent. What does all this mean for the global economic outlook?
