Guernsey Funds Forum 2018
17 May 2018 - London
12:00PM - 5:00PM
Join us at this year's Guernsey Funds Forum, where we will be considering paradigm shifts: politics at home and abroad, protectionism, monetary policy, and investor expectations.
Our keynote speaker Jonathan Ford, City Editor at the Financial Times, will be setting the scene with insight and analysis of the year’s biggest news stories.
Next, our panel of industry experts will discuss the threats presented and opportunities provided by the shifting sands of time.
- the most significant threats to the status quo
- contracting monetary policy and its consequences
- protectionism and its impact on business
- bold action and best practice
During the final session of the day, Jon Moulton and Dame Helena Morrissey will go on the record and answer so-far unanswered questions.
The forum continues to develop year on year and has become a must-attend event in the calendar of many key investment fund decision makers in London. This year will be no different and will once more showcase Guernsey's offering and expertise through thought leadership discussion and debate on the state of the funds industry.
