Responsible Asset Owners, 8 October, London, Conference

Responsible Asset Owners, 8 October, London, Conference


This summit will bring together leaders in banking, regulation, asset management, government, sovereign wealth, hedge funds, FinTech and academia from across Europe and North America. The Responsible Asset Owners Global Symposium is a timely event given that large asset owners are becoming increasingly powerful players in global financial markets, yet despite their rapid rise they are often less well understood than other types of investment vehicles.
As more countries become reliant on large Asset Owners for future pension schemes this event will address several questions around whether such ambitious growth is controlled by underlying political ambitions with little transparency. All of which could cause significant price movements and inevitably destabilise global financial markets.
