International Monetary Fund
Former Special Advisor to the Managing Director, Former Director of the Strategy, Policy and Review Department (Retired August 2021)
Within weeks of his former role as Special Advisor to the head of the IMF, Martin will provide deep insights on how the UN, Central Banks and IMF need to affect climate change in an effective manner, along with the urgency for climate investment and the potential impact on investors’ profits. Furthermore, with an abundance of ESG content flooding the market, Martin will share a unique synthesis on the most poignant matters underpinning the three pillars of sustainable development - economic growth, environmental stewardship, and social inclusion.
THE INFLATION OUTLOOK HOLDS THE KEY TO OUR INVESTMENT FUTURE
Economists views on the inflation outlook are hugely polarised. Many see the recent inflation surge as permanent and the start of a new upward trend enabled by a shift in Central Bank attitudes and priorities. Others see the recent higher inflation as a transitory blip. Are we transitioning out of The Ice Age or not? Whoever is right will hold the key to the investment outlook. We explore the arguments and give our own SG house view.

As an advisor to Presidents, Prime Ministers and politicians around the world, including France, Dominique is brilliantly placed to provide a behind-the-scenes perspective on the implications of a French presidential change or re-election.

Sir Christopher Pissarides
Nobel Prize Winner in Economic Sciences
Professor of Economics & Political Science, London School of Economics
Technological change is about as old as mankind, but at least since the invention of the steam engine, it has often been seen to threaten mass unemployment. To date that has evidently not happened. But in the “Age of the Robots”, is this time different? What can we do to avoid it?
Plus, how advanced economies can return to a sustainable fiscal position.
