The 5th Annual Private Wealth UK Forum is the region's leading conference for family offices, high net worth wealth managers and private banks from throughout the region and one of the flagship meetings of our global private wealth series. The Forum’s content was developed through hundreds of one-on-one meetings with the HNW family wealth management community and the program's speaker faculty is primarily comprised of leaders in the sector from across the UK.
Our agenda covers asset allocation and protection, equity markets, fixed income, alternative investments, as well as succession planning and an outlook of the financial markets and the global economy. This event is completely closed door and invitation only, and it has been designed to enable genuine peer-to-peer learning and networking for the regional private wealth community.

ECONOMIC, POLITICAL & GLOBAL MARKETS OUTLOOK
Currently, we find ourselves in a positive domestic GDP environment, with optimistic corporate earnings growth, a strong dollar and a volatile stock market. What is to be expected in 2020 and beyond?
EMERGING AND OPPORTUNISTIC ALTERNATIVE INVESTING
Private Equity, Venture, Hedge Funds and other alternatives investments hold appeal for wealthy families. How are wealth managers viewing future allocations as valuations increase and dry powder sits on the sidelines?
FIXED INCOME INVESTMENTS
Global growth remains positive and central banks around the world continue to unwind what has been a very accommodative monetary policy. However, with volatility likely to stay high, investors must continue to do their homework.
EQUITIES AND THEIR IMPACT ON PORTFOLIOS
Huge opportunities remain available for investors considering (I would change “considering” to “making” predictions for 2020. Aside from energy, where are the biggest opportunities? Will ESG be affected as volatility cripples some specific industries?
REAL ASSET AND REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
With volatility expected to continue throughout 2020 in public markets, investors with an appetite for less risk will be turning to real estate and other real assets investments. Still, finding the best opportunities will require great due diligence and patience.
With competition for clients and assets on the rise, wealth managers need to ensure that their asset allocation strategies address the balance between risk and opportunity.
