This wide-ranging panel session will cover the key drivers that will create threats and opportunities, over the next 12 months and beyond. The continued impact of Brexit, across the whole of Europe, will be debated – alongside the now intertwined impacts of COVID-19 and digitalisation. The latest regulations and consumer trends in the area of ESG will also be discussed, not least in terms of assessing the consequences of both on business models, best practice and suitability. There will also be a deliberation on the future of retirement and investment planning, and risk management. Underpinning all of this will be an analysis of the impact of technology at all points across the financial advisory spectrum. The below diverse and highly expert panel will provide unique insights.
