ETF Stream is excited to announce that Lord Jim O’Neill will be joining the inaugural ETF Buyer: London event on 7 November.
Former Goldman Sachs chief economist O’Neill (pictured) will deliver a keynote on the future of emerging markets.
O’Neill has been a highly influential economist for nearly three decades. He is a member of the House of Lords, former Commercial Secretary to the Treasury and Honorary Professor of Economics at the University of Manchester.
He is best known for his work on emerging economies. In 2001, he coined the BRIC acronym – Brazil, Russia, India and China – to refer to markets he perceived as primary drivers of future global economic growth.
In a 2003 paper, titled Dreaming with BRICs: The Path to 2050, he posited that BRIC nations could overtake the largest Western economies by 2039.
In addition to O’Neill, attendees can look forward to hearing from other phenomenal speakers at ETF Buyer: London. The line-up includes DWS’s former head of sustainability Desiree Fixler, who will be discussing how to assess an asset manager’s ESG credentials during the opening keynote.
Fixler was responsible for exposing claims that $900bn of the German asset manager’s assets were ESG-aligned in its 2020 annual report.
Meanwhile, Andrew Clare, professor of asset management at Bayes Business School, will deliver a closing keynote on adopting ETF strategies for any market environment.
Taking place on 7 November, the first-ever ETF Buyer: London event will provide investors with essential tools to make better decisions when allocating to ETFs. Join ETF Stream for a series of keynotes, panels and presentations with the best minds from across asset management.
