2023 Theme: Déjà new – From hindsight to foresight 

We’ve seen a significant upheaval in global markets brought on by the pandemic recovery, regional conflicts, supply chain challenges and technological advancements. These events and their impact as a whole have interesting similarities to recent history, most notably the 1970s, and allows us to draw on these experiences as we seek to adapt portfolios to the current landscape and meet long-term investment goals.

This year's Global Investment Forums explore what we can learn from recent history and the key themes that are likely to shape markets and investment practices. Join key stakeholders, industry consultants and other influential thinkers for an insightful look at the forces affecting the investment industry.

Right now, you can already connect via our digital research platform MercerInsight® Community, a free gateway to some of the very best research and insights in the industry.

A global series of events connecting the investments world

Each event offers a series of main sessions, breakouts and keynote addresses. The events provide an opportunity to connect with key stakeholders, industry consultants and other influential thinkers for an insightful look at the forces affecting the investment industry.

Rich Nuzum and Jo Holden invite you to the Forums

The enduring uncertainty in the market and challenging investment landscape make a compelling case to convene the investment community to learn from each other, share new ideas, and connect and form new partnerships; the opportunities are out there. We’re planning an ambitious agenda to draw together expertise and diverse views from across the investment world.

Global Head of Investment Research and Advisory, Mercer
