The Future is Now

As life expectancy continues to increase, there are more individuals living past their 100th birthday. But what does this longevity mean for you and the future of your generations to come? On the flip side, as the Earth's temperature rises, we are facing major climate change which will impact our later years, but all is not lost…

With technology advancement, the right mindset and continued education, there are measures we can still take to use the resources around us in a more sustainable manner.

Register today and hear from our thought leaders on Wednesday, 28th October 2020, on how sustainable developments, technological trends and education are shaping and driving positive change helping meet the challenges of rapid climate change, our 100-year life, and a volatile investment landscape.


Together, we can create a world worth living in.




By putting our wealth to work for the issues that we believe in, we have the power to change the world through investments and build a world worth living in.

Join us as a panel of distinguished speakers share their insights on forward-thinking and dynamic topics such as:

  • Using money as a force for good to ensure a sustainable future and a world worth living in
