In a world where policy is increasingly driven by populism and political discourse is taking place on social media, institutional investors are playing an important stabilizing role in the world. With their long-term view to investing, they work to look through the noise to the underlying trends driving steady and sustained investment returns. Please join Frances Donald and Robert Lavigne as they discuss the megatrends that will shape the global economy in the years ahead.
