WASHINGTON, Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Arison Investments Chairman and CEO Efrat Peled was a panelist today in a breakout session at Fortune's 2015 Most Powerful Women Summit. The panel, Global Risks and Opportunities: The World View, focused on top of mind recent global economic events. Fortune's annual MPW summit convenes preeminent women in business and select leaders in government, philanthropy, education, and the arts, for a wide-ranging discussion and high-level networking.
Peled: "In volatile times, private investors can reach solid business results by taking an absolute return investment strategy, via direct and realistic investments instead of algo/robot trading. Backed by international multi-lateral financing institutions, the key to facing current global challenges are strategic long-term investments, made in equities or debt of companies that place values at their core."
Peled was asked to share practical solutions and bring in the hands-on experience she has gained leading Arison Investments, the business arm of the Arison Group, owned by businesswoman and philanthropist Shari Arison. Arison Investments creates values-based investments in more than 40 countries across five continents in finances, infrastructure, real estate, renewable energy, water and salt.
The panel was moderated by Nina Easton, Washington Columnist, Senior Editor and Chair of Fortune's MPW International and Co-chair of Fortune's Global Forum. Peled was joined by other experts in the field of innovative business leadership, including Mary Erdoes, CEO of JP Morgan Asset Management, Susan Schwab, Former U.S. Trade Representative, and Isabelle Welton, Chief Human Resource Officer at Zurich Insurance Group.
Peled said, "Decision-making processes are extraordinarily swift these days, requiring top management of public companies to run flexible capital structures and cash flows, while seeking tactical opportunities that are in line with their long-term strategies. Any business model must incorporate technological solutions and developments, together with a genuinely humane, moral and values-based approach."
