Advanced Asset Management
Save the date: Wednesday 8 - Thursday 9 June 2022
The future is here - quantum and paradigm shifts are happening around us. A global pandemic has stopped humanity in its tracks. We have new insights into how we do business and how we think about our economies and our communities.
Grounded by these insights, and faced now with a changing climate, rising costs, an ageing and diverse society, and regulatory and structural changes, we have to be greener, more inclusive and more resilient now.
