The Digital Silk Road Summit - October 2020

The potency of China’s role in shaping the world of the 21st century and beyond is no longer under debate: both geographically and economically, it has arrived on the world stage.

UK Institutional pension funds have repeatedly expressed their desire to learn more about this rapidly growing market. We have been meeting with world class Chinese asset managers to gain a better understanding of the opportunities available and tap into a powerful network of local knowledge and experience.

We strongly believe there is tremendous value in the exchange of ideas and information between the UK and China and are therefore working on a new digital series for the rest of 2020.

The second in our series of Silk Road Summits, this event will help all attendees foster relationships and heighten awareness of the opportunity set available. This is an exciting time and mallowstreet is thrilled to be at the heart of driving this connection, expanding our mission to foster collaboration in our industry to an international scale.
