On 12 November 2015, the Investment Institute brought together some of the world’s largest asset owners, thought leaders and senior regulators to debate the challenges and opportunities for long-term investors.
The wide-ranging discussion focused on the new opportunities for long-term investors that will enable them to build resilient, diversified portfolios.
The 2015 London Forum, hosted by Investec Asset Management, focused on debating the opportunities and risks of long-term investment in a low-growth world. Current global economic and political realities are prompting investors, regulators and policymakers to ask profound questions about how they can structure and allocate capital to meet their long-term objectives and promote financial stability.
The current investment environment is characterised by greater regulation, declining global productivity, deteriorating demographic outlooks in advanced economies, and a bumpy path to structural transformation in the world’s largest emerging markets. To meet their investment objectives large institutions with multi-decade investment horizons must identify resilient assets that will continue to perform in the face of these challenging economic and financial conditions.
The London Forum provided a platform for key financial stakeholders to discuss these issues and identify the most effective ways for long-term investors to benefit from shifting global economic and financial dynamics.Return to Investment Institute
