Ascension is proud to be a Specialist Advisor to M3 Plus Limited (M3 Plus), a professional services company incorporated in Hong Kong as a company limited by guaranty.  The company exists exclusively to provide consulting, counsel, and financial and logistical administration services for the M3 Global Direct Dialogue Seriesalso known as M3 Direct. Mr. Geoffrey Enck, CEO of Ascension Capital, is Chairman of M3 Plus, Limited.

M3 Direct – M for Macroeconomic, 3 representing the crucial linkages between 1) commercial enterprises, 2) government and 3) academia in global economic matters, is a global initiative that brings together select multi-national corporations, academics, and highest level government policy makers from China, the USA, Europe and Japan. The purpose is to discuss emerging international macroeconomic growth challenges and innovations across key industry sectors in China in a systematic, recurring, and confidential dialogue.

M3 Direct comprises a series of focused meetings conducted annually in China, the USA, Europe and Japan, in private, closed-door sessions with tightly-controlled attendance. Unlike a typical seminar, convention or forum, M3 Direct is small, interactive and driven by a select list of participants. M3 Plus will provide direction and guidance to support M3 Direct in achieving its vision of increasing communication and collaboration among leading global economic regions.
