Discussions include:

‘What makes a client trust an adviser?’ In this session, Morningstar’s Global Head of Behavioural Insights, Ryan Murphy, will review the findings from his latest research – How to Build Trust in the Adviser-Client Relationship.

‘How do higher interest rates affect the outlook for the UK Equity Market?’ The UK market has been cheap for a while, but it is frequently described as a value trap. Given the change in the interest rate environment, this talk will discuss the threat of value traps from the perspective of both balance sheets and the competitive outlook.

Sustainable Funds: Are labels helping investors and the solution to greenwashing? One of the top priorities of financial regulators is to combat greenwashing. With the UK regulator planning to introduce its own purpose-built labelling system, this discussion will explore what’s working, what isn’t, and what needs to change to help investors make better-informed choices.

Active versus passive investing – what does the future hold? A panel of experts will explore the role of active investing during a period of high outflows.
