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.
Complimentary accommodation will be provided for this two day event.

The CEOs of 21 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.

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.

It will be the place in 2023 to discuss the major issues facing savers and investors: how to meet today's challenges and maximise the opportunities.

This two-day event will be based in the City of London. Complimentary accommodation will be provided at nearby 5-star hotels in central London.

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