Overview

As the Cabinet battles over the Brexit negotiations, the popularity of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party is rising in the polls. If any political upset results in a general election, policies supported by Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell could result in a much harsher tax regime for the wealthy, as well as big business, affecting investment performance for many asset classes. 

Free drinks and canapes will be served at this event.

Full Overview

The panel will debate: 

  • What is the likelihood of a Labour government coming to power? 
  • What policies are wealth managers and investment experts most concerned about? 
  • What are the potential consequences for the property market and the stock market? 
  • How would it affect the business world - and the jobs market in the City of London? 
  • When it comes to financial planning, what should investors in equities and property take into consideration now? 
  • Labour's resurgence in the polls speaks volumes about intergenerational inequality- what policy changes should today's politicians be considering to support young people and tackle long-standing problems such as social care?
