Square Mile Investment Conference

We were delighted to host the first Square Mile Investment Conference. The day was filled with presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions and informal networking, allowing for plenty of discussion and knowledge sharing. We partnered with 16 of the biggest names in asset management to provide a comprehensive update on the investment world, hear insights on news and views on markets, funds and what the future holds for the industry.

Details of all the speakers presenting at the event can be found below, along with all the ‘faces’ you might have met during our Faces of the Future lunch.
