The future will be about investing in cities, not nations

Afshin Molavi keynote speaker

Afshin Molavi

Geopolitics Speaker

In his keynote speech at Citywire Berlin X, geopolitics expert, Afshin Molavi, argued that the future of investing will be in cities, not nations.

Since the treaty of Westphalia in the 17th century, we’ve thought about the world as being divided into nations. But the truth is that urban centres are the real drivers of economic growth, and investment approaches should be structured to reflect this reality.
