This conference programme aims to give senior industry professionals access to new ideas, solutions and innovations to help take their departments and companies forward. The agenda is pitched at a high level and we endeavour to present new case studies and new thinkers on the programme each year.

Keynote and seminar sessions give a high-level view of the  industry, offering predictions and insights to help delegates form their future strategies. The interactive workshops and discussion groups complement the larger sessions by drilling down into specific issues, allowing delegates to share their collective experiences and to learn how their peers are dealing with similar situations.

  • Opening address: 2017 – The Year of the Red Rooster

    Justin Urquhart Stewart, Co-Founder, Seven Investment Management

    Can the World have a wake up call of the Chinese Red Rooster?

    Politically with a new US President, and a growing Chinese economy, political egos are going to be to the fore.
    Economically can the Fed, the ECB and the Chinese authorities sustain global growth, or will we see a lower slower world?

    Will the UK reassert its growth of previous years or after the EU vote will we have lost our momentum?

    It is going to be a face off for the Global Cockerels, but can we make sure our global trade increases?

    Justin Urquhart Stewart having trained as a barrister, Justin helped found Broker Services in 1986 which went on to become Barclays Stockbrokers, where Justin was Corporate Development Director. In early 2001, he co-founded Seven Investment Management, an investment management business. Seven Investment Management now manages and administers around £11 billion on behalf of professional financial wealth managers and intermediaries.
    Justin writes regularly for national magazines and newspapers, and is a frequent commentator on television and radio, both in the UK and abroad.
