YPx Ep. 3: A Personal Journey Into Investment Management 📈

As Warren Buffet famously said; If you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die. What does that mean for the country that never sleeps; China? Together with Ludvig we'll learn more about the fascinating world of investment right here in China and how you can leverage those insights privately.

The growth of the Chinese economy comes in parallel with the growth of the Chinese market, which also creates many opportunities for businesses and investment firms to capitalize on. As investments increase, so does the interest for getting into the industry and understanding what factors to consider when deciding whether or not to invest.

Years before the whole world turned their heads east, Ludvig Nilsson already made his way from Gothenburg to explore a country with deep history and a huge potential for growth: China. Having lived in China for more than 20 years and with extensive experience in the investment management industry, Ludvig will share his personal story of how he came to China and why he has stayed for so long.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to hear an exciting journey of how Ludvig moved across the globe to pursue a career in investment, and what you can learn from his experiences. Whether or not you are interested in the industry or just want to get inspired - this presentation is for you!

See you there!
