Baltic International Bank Investment Forum


Old money. New world!

24 May 2019 | Riga


This year our prestigious Investment Forum “Old money. New world!” brought together extraordinary personalities, top names of the world and Latvia, some of the most powerful minds, starting with our honourable keynote speaker Charles Morgan who shared his legacy, insight and visionary ideas.

Investment Forum provided the opportunity to mingle with more than hundred private banking clients, business partners and top stakeholders. The Forum focus was on wealth succession – a journey to financial security and confidence.

An ever-growing amount of wealth is looking for exclusive investment opportunities

According to the most recent Knight Frank wealth report, the global number of ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWI) is estimated to grow by 22% over the next five years, meaning, additional 43 thousand people will be worth more than US$ 30 million by 2023. This implies that an ever-growing amount of wealth is looking for a defined amount of exclusive investment opportunities.


Despite of the slowing economic growth globally, we are optimistic about the upcoming years and see that there will be considerable opportunities for our clients as the markets change. Investment Forum is a place where you can learn about the current investment market trends, as well as hear first-hand about the latest investment opportunities

Viktors Bolbats, CEO

Deniss Kairans

“Investing in real estate requires thorough knowledge of the Baltic real estate market: retail, office and residential. People should avoid short-term thinking when adopting real estate investment decisions – they need to compare yields, think of long-term benefits.”






Alejandro Gonzalez

“I look forward to visiting Riga and engaging the panel and attendees in discussion. As a trader, investor and arranger of debentures, I am happy to share some of our insights on what the main requirements are for institutional issuers to access liquidity as well as for investors to participate in less liquid markets. The Baltic region has a lot of potential and we believe that many investors overlook its true value."

Give to Receive

All truly grand and successful entrepreneurs have understood the meaning of charity. For example, Bill Gates donates large amounts of his wealth to charity, implying that this is both meaningful and fun and emphasizing that philanthropy is a basic responsibility of every profitable business, as the best use of extra wealth is to give it back to society. 

In accordance with our sponsorship and charitable donation principles Baltic International Bank acknowledges its corporate and social responsibility as well as the role it plays in the community. Bank has provided generous charitable support for various causes as we are genuinely interested in the prosperity and well-being of our society – we care about Latvia, its people and various communities in our country supporting integrity, inclusion, diversity and equal opportunities for everyone.

Purpose of the support is to improve their social and functional skills, as well as social rehabilitation services to the legal guardians of these children.

Our help will provide these children and their families’ support, ability to obtain social rehabilitation services, improve household and social skills, strengthen family values, and reduce the family separation risk allowing the families to receive social, psychological and educational services to ease their daily life but most important – show them that we care, that they are not alone and excluded from the society, as inclusion is a virtue we truly believe in and stand for.
