COVID-19: the transformation incentive
This conference will look at whether the COVID crisis has had a pervasive impact on the investment landscape in the short and long term, and ask delegates to question whether some of the investment assumptions used in the past are still applicable in the future. It will look at the influence of the COVID crisis as an accelerator for certain key themes driving markets; examine the way business is conducted and decisions are made; and predict the impact of technological innovation on businesses, the way we work and the future of the global economy. Importantly it will challenge investors to think about what needs to change, and hasn’t yet, and how the crisis can be a catalyst for new and improved business practices and investment allocations.
