This month, we hosted our Summer Investment Club. We had a great opening address from Russell Napier (author and co-founder of the investment research portal ERIC) before the day's presentations.

At the end of the month, we hosted our annual Summer Party as a thank you to our members for their continued support. Members enjoyed a BBQ and drinks on a rooftop space in the City, overlooking St Paul's Cathedral, on one of the hottest days of the year!

Global Partnership wishes its members a lovely Summer and looks forward to welcoming them back for our Autumn Investment Club in September. 

May 2018

In May, we hosted three private lunch events for members, focusing on a range of topics including Private Markets, Private Equity, Impact Investing and Social Investing. 

Meanwhile, Save the Dates for our second annual European Association conference, taking palace this October, went out. Our largest conference to date, this special event is generally less investment based and instead tailored to the personal issues currently facing families.

This March has been a busy month for GPFO - we packed in five events!

First up was our Coffee with the Economist conference on the 7th March, a morning panel session where attendees heard some great discussion on a range of topics: Navigating Uncertainty, Investing in a Time of Climate Change, Economic Outlook in Europe and if the next US recession be 2035.

In the same day, our POC members were kindly invited to Wembley Stadium by Clinova, a GPFO partner for 2018, for the last 16 Champions League match Tottenham Hotspur vs Juventus. 

Just the next day, we hosted a private lunch discussing an innovative private markets solution for family offices. A busy week for all!

Global Partnership started this new year in a brand new office - in the lovely St James's District over at Carlton House Terrace.

Jumping straight into our event calendar, we hosted our first investment club of the year on the 23rd where Vincent Neate gave a fascinating talk about Impact Investing over lunch after the day's presentations. Other presentations covered Real Assets, The Challenges in Managing Complex Wealth and Digitalization in China. We also released 2018's first edition of FOGlet, our digital magazine publication.
