The twentieth Meeting of Minds Advisory Distributors took place on 1 December 2015 at The Berkeley Hotel, London. This document summarises the key issues raised in the topics discussed during the roundtables that took place on the day. This Meeting brings together representatives from the top sixty Advisory Distributors in the UK and operates two streams:

  • The CEO stream - those individuals who set the overall business strategy for the firm - be it a national, large regional or network;
  • The CIO stream - those involved in setting their firm’s investment strategy in terms of the products and funds they market to their clients.

Participants enjoy access to strategic insight, active involvement in shaping the industry and networking at the highest level.

These Meetings are a blend of boardroom style sessions addressing a pre-researched and pre-agreed agenda with open discussions led by objective professional moderators; keynote presentations provided by external speakers whose remit is to spark debate and encourage fresh and original thinking; all topped off with networking – both structured and unstructured.

The next Meeting will take place on Tuesday 28 June 2016 at Tylney Hall in Hampshire.  To find out more about taking part, please contact: Emily Landless on 01483 861334 or email her at
