We all want to do what we can to make the world a better place, and people in investment are no different.
Next week, a group of London’s most high profile figures in investment will be meeting to discuss ways they can address a series of global challenges.
The group of investment professionals will include the founders and partners of leading private equity funds as well as business leaders and human rights experts.
While enjoying a dinner at the influential Conduit Club on Mayfair, guests will be exploring the ways FTSE 250 companies have successfully used their positions to bring about positive change and learning how to instigate similar changes through their own businesses and their teams.
Organised by our CEO and co-founder, Caroline Sage, the invitation-only event will feature key speakers, Paul Van Zyl and Puja Jain.
