Era of digitalization offers us any information we need. In seconds we can find an answer to any question. Nevertheless people have very different views on the same things due to unconscious and predictable biases, which usually are not supported with facts.

Fortunately if we try to find supporting facts to every believe, we may surprisingly find that the world is a much better place to live in.

Join us for the 10th CFA Society Ukraine Investment Forum where we will separate facts from biases and will take a fresh look at the future of Ukraine and the globe. Embrace a worldview based on facts to reveal true sense.
