Findings from Asset Management Meeting of Minds - March 2020


The sixth Meeting of Minds Asset Management took place on Thursday 5 March at The Berkeley Hotel, London.

These Meetings bring together the Chief Executive Officers and Chief Operating Officers from substantial asset management firms – both retail and institutional. The goal is to provide a platform for these very senior men and women to address the big issues they are grappling with. The Meeting is Chatham House and thus participants are encouraged to speak openly and frankly and share insights and learning in the knowledge that any comments they might make will be non-attributable.

This Meeting was held against the backdrop of rising concern around the Coronavirus. Firms were already shying away from substantial gatherings. So, the group who met were smaller in number than had been hoped but they were rewarded by the opportunity to hear David Heymann, Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who generously shared his insights into the pandemic which was beginning to affect all aspects of our lives. We felt he gave us a head start!

The Format:

A Meeting of Minds Asset Management is a biannual strategic forum organised by Owen James in association with Lansons. 

The half day (breakfast through lunch) is a blend of roundtable sessions addressing a pre-researched and pre-agreed agenda with open discussion led by objective and professional facilitators; keynotes provided by external speakers whose remit is to spark debate and encourage fresh and original thinking; plus substantial networking both structured and unstructured.
