Six years ago (pre-Trump and Brexit), award winning fund manager Gervais Williams warned of radical change to private markets in his book The Retreat of Globalisation. His ideas were written in a period of stability and seemed far-fetched at the time.

On 9 September, in partnership with CrowdX, Edison will be hosting an event where Gervais will talk about some of the ideas in his book six years on and how the change he anticipated is transforming private markets for all participants.

Join a fireside chat where Gervais will discuss some of the concepts he predicted and how they fit into today’s context, joined by Edison’s Neil Shah and CrowdX CEO Mike McCudden. Gervais will talk about his view of the opportunities (and pitfalls) ahead for private capital and some themes he sees playing out in the UK.
