The inaugural Meeting of Minds Asset Management took place on Thursday 2 November at The Ned in the City of London. This document summarises the key issues raised in the topics discussed during the four roundtables that took place on the day.

A Meeting of Minds Asset Management will now become a biannual strategic forum organised by Owen James in partnership with Lansons and bringing together the Heads of Retail in Asset Management.

The agenda addresses those issues which affect the asset management industry for example, regulation, clients, distribution trends, business models, product innovation etc. The day is a blend of roundtable sessions addressing a pre-researched and pre-agreed agenda with open discussion led by objective and professional moderators; keynotes provided by external speakers whose remit is to spark debate and encourage fresh and original thinking; plus substantial networking.

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