About the event

The Karen Leung Foundation is proud to present our 7th Annual Sohn Hong Kong Investment Conference. The conference brings together Asia’s leading investors to support the fight against gynaecological and pediatric cancers by promoting research, education, prevention and optimal treatment.

The Sohn Conference Hong Kong, in partnership with the globally recognized Sohn Conference Foundation, is a must-attend event in Asia providing a forum for successful professional investors to present a market view or investment idea, allowing attendees such as sell and buy-side investment professionals, asset allocators, and private investors to gain valuable insights from leaders in the field. 

The half-day conference will have a great line-up of investment speakers, all experienced and successful investors who each will present a single investment idea or a market view to the Hong Kong audience.
