On 21 November 2016, we had the great pleasure of bringing clients and friends of the business together for the Investment Institute’s third London Forum at Lancaster House.
The Forum provided a platform for leaders within the asset management industry to discuss the topic of long-term investing for a sustainable future. The morning programme addressed the significant changes taking place in our current political and investment landscape with a view from Zanny Minton Beddoes, Editor-in-Chief of The Economist, Liu Xiaoming, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to the UK and a panel of investment and business leaders discussed China’s long term investment policies including the significant ‘Belt and Road’ initiative.
The afternoon and evening addressed the topic of focusing capital on the long term with contributions from Nigel Wilson, CEO, Legal & General; Charles Gave of Gavekal; Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever and Lord Mark Malloch Brown, Co-Chair of the Business and Sustainable Development Commission; amongst other notable speakers. The discussions re-emphasised the importance, now more than ever, of adopting a long-term mind set for both investment and sustainability practices.Return to Investment Institute
