The Entrepreneurs

In the world of high-end, long-lasting and much-loved furniture brands, Vitsœ is perhaps without rival. For more than 50 years, the company has manufactured and sold furniture designed by the legendary Dieter Rams. But how do you sustain a legacy of top design, not to mention a profitable business model, for more than half a century? This week we meet Vitsœ’s managing director Mark Adams – the man who saved the company from bankruptcy and who has ambitious plans for the brand’s future.

The Bulletin with UBS

This week: are markets just calm or are investors being complacent? Despite the fact that the US equity market suffered its worst trading day in around eight months this week, in the main, volatility has been extraordinarily low. We’ll ask our expert panellists to explain why, historically, low volatility hasn’t been an indicator of future market stress. And with continuing strong earnings growth and broadly positive global economic sentiment around the world, can investors profit?
