Trump, Brexit and more: AIST’s EOFY Thought Leadership Lunch

While many global markets have enjoyed a solid start to 2017,  there remains much investor uncertainty about the impact of Trump, Brexit and the broader populist push on geo-political developments as well as world economic growth.

Our respected facilitators Jon Faine (in Melbourne) and Gerard Noonan (in Sydney) will be joined by a panel of experts for a deep dive into the big investment questions. No slides, charts or graphs in sight – just a no nonsense approach of getting to the nub of the issues. 

The session will cover:

  • THE PAST: Review of the last 12 months performance in global and domestic financial markets and asset classes
  • THE PRESENT: Update on the current issues affecting investment markets
  • THE FUTURE: Find out the key trends emerging that funds will need to harness for success
