Guernsey Funds Forum 2017

11 May 2017 - London

12:00PM - 5:00PM

Join us at the Funds Forum hosted by Guernsey Finance, where we will discuss real funds and real money in a post-truth world.

The event, which takes place at etc.venues, 155 Bishopsgate, London during the afternoon of Thursday 11 May, will feature two panel debates among leading figures from the funds industry and a keynote speech from Crispin Odey.

In a world in which politicians are lying to the electorate, the electorate are lying to pollsters, and pollsters are lying to business people and those that advise them, we search for certainty at the Guernsey Funds Forum.

The event is expected to attract c. 500 professionals from across the world of alternative investment funds.
