Mirage or Regime Shift?

June 10th & 11th, 2021


Mirage or Regime Shift?

This year we explored how to read the signs of change that have only increased since the pandemic. Are we caught in end-of-cycle turbulence or in the midst of a regime shift that requires a new model to apprehend? Are we ready to undertake the tasks ahead?  

Our program featured leading minds to address Geopolitics, Monetary Policy, Inequality and Climate issues over two days, as well as offering insight from our investment teams on what these issues portend for markets.

    As the decade begins, we will ask which global transformations underway are approaching a critical point of no return and explore possible investment solutions. Climate change, rising inequalities, the erosion of international community as a valid concept: which, if any, are inexorable, and what do they herald for investors?
