Agenda

Agenda

Full agenda coming soon Full agenda TBA
The new decade brings a new focus and as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis and level up following the UK’s exit from the Brexit transition period, 'Investing in a Changing World' looks towards a time of significant change.

Spread across two days with a main plenary studio session running each day, followed by specialist breakout sessions, this year’s Summit will explore the role private equity and venture capital will play in the economic recovery, the UK’s role on the global stage post-Brexit, and how the sector will break new ground in digital transformation, accelerating net zero targets, ESG, impact investing, decarbonisation, and diversity and inclusion.

Further information and the full agenda will be released shortly.
(All agenda times listed are BST.)
