Global Investment
Management Summit

Featuring some of the world's brightest thinkers from the fields of central banking, government, finance, industry and academia, and reflecting the UK’s longstanding fusion of innovation and heritage, the Global Investment Management Summit will take place in central London.

The CEOs of 22 of the world’s leading investment management groups, in partnership with the Investment Association and the City of London Corporation, invite you to the Global Investment Management Summit, which is part of the Global Investment Futures campaign to promote and support the UK’s leading investment management offer.

It will be a unique event in the calendar for major international investors looking for global expertise and leading-edge thinking in investment management, and forms part of a wider initiative to connect asset owners, global institutions and major wealth managers with the expertise available from the UK’s financial services community. Speakers will focus on the key issues facing investors today, ranging from trends that are driving longer-term policy and investment strategies, through to the factors that are creating a re-appraisal of risks and expectations in the current economic environment. It will be the place in 2022 to discuss the major issues facing today’s savers and investors: how to meet the challenges and maximise the opportunities.

Join CEOs, government figures and leading thinkers for two days of insightful, pertinent and stimulating content as they demonstrate the UK’s continued growth as a global hub of financial innovation. In addition to an array of senior industry executives, the agenda features former Prime Ministers, academics, global journalists, sustainability experts, business leaders, scientists … and many more world-renowned speakers.

This two-day event will be based in the City of London. Complimentary accommodation will be provided on Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 September at nearby 5-star hotels in central London.

As well as our packed agenda, there will be plenty of time to network with our asset management hosts, external speakers and representatives from the UK government and Bank of England.

Keynote speaker

Mariana Mazzucato, Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London.

In Mariana’s view, we face three simultaneous crises – health, finance and climate change. Rather than stepping from one crisis into the next, Mariana advocates that the government can play a more proactive role in shaping markets and sparking innovation — working together with the private sector to drive deep structural change, to bring purpose and stakeholder value to the centre of the ecosystem.
