DUBAI, UAE – (April 23, 2020) – “Amplifying the Positive Values of Family Office Investments for the Good of Humanity,” hosted by Sir Anthony Ritossa of The Ritossa Family Office on April 21 under the High Patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Duaij bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, unified a record-breaking 873 leading global family offices and industry professionals for a Virtual Keynote Panel exploring the best path forward in today’s uncertain times.


As the first in a series of Virtual Keynotes, the event hosted an esteemed panel of six leading dignitaries from the UAE, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, US and UK. These gentlemen presented actionable strategies to make the world a better place as well as an overview of how they are prioritising new opportunities for preserving and developing wealth.

“It's been a fantastic Virtual Keynote, thank you so much to the esteemed Moderator Hussein Sayed, CFA, and all Panelists Adam LadjadjAdil AlzarooniBadr Al-TowaijriNadeem Siam, and Benjamin Blumenthal for enlightening our families with your thought leadership and support.

Some of the takeaways I have seen here is that helping others is the greatest form of wealth,

Sir Anthony Ritossa, Chairman, Ritossa Family Office, Host Ritossa Family Office Investment Summits.

Highlights of the discussion included:


Humanity Will Welcome a New Normal– Leading private investors are exploring new technologies to help the world such as a new medical evaluation gateway called Symptom Sense that measures human health indicators such as temperature, heart rate, oxygen level and shortness of breath at public venues such as airports, schools, hospitals, public buildings, hotels, conference venues, sports and concert halls as well as Places of worship.


 Sector-Specific Growth Presents Opportunity – There are 10-12x growth opportunities in certain technology investments, especially those such as groceries that are deemed necessary. Companies that manufacture disposable healthcare products such as face masks are strong performers as well, and investors who capitalise on these timely sectors are well-poised for future growth.


 Focus on Human Health is Vital – Emotional well-being services, including online support, is important and will continue to be essential beyond the pandemic. Helping our communities in a sustainable manner over the long-term is critical.


 The More Companies That Survive, the Quicker the Recovery – It is vital to issue credit in the short term to enable the maximum number of small-medium businesses to survive so that once restrictions are lifted, we can recover quickly and efficiently. As investors continue to seek strong returns, we need to help each other.


 The Future of Education Will Change – The value of e-learning and virtual schools have been substantiated as humans increasingly work and study from home. Experts agree that life after COVID-19 will not be the same, and e-learning solutions that help to improve the quality of education will be big winners.


Taking Care of People is Critical– With talk focused on flattening the curve, it is important to understand that the curve is a wave and that humans may face harsh winter as the coronavirus continues to ebb and flow. With that in mind, we must gather together to build strategies and invest in ways that help make the world a better place for all. By being prepared, investors are able to stay strong.
