Full Overview

With markets on edge and uncertainty dominating the global outlook, the Financial Times will host world leading institutional investors, asset managers, regulators and influencers in London this September at the FT Investment Management Summit. 

Now in its sixth year, this Summit is the annual meeting point for leaders in the industry, a high level opportunity to discuss and dissect the latest market developments and their implications for portfolio planning and returns.

Major questions for this year’s agenda include:

  • With many predicting the end of the current credit cycle, what is in store for the year ahead?  Is a correction likely and what will be the trigger – corporate debt levels, interest rates, tapering?
  • As ESG integration moves to the mainstream, what are the next steps to ensure investors can do well and do good?
  • Which asset classes, from the traditional to the emerging, will perform amid rising volatility and unpredictable market conditions?
  • With no solutions in sight on Brexit, trade tensions, Italy and other critical events, will political developments continue to be investors’ top tail risk?

This year’s FT Investment Management Summit has, in response to attendee demand, been extended to a day and a half.  It will deep dive into how investment strategies are changing and evolving as markets shift and shape in preparation for the next economic cycle.  Join us and be part of the conversation at this unmissable gathering of the world’s investors.
