The power of culture summit

The power of culture summit for investment leaders | 22 - 24 September

At the Thinking Ahead Institute, we believe that culture is a unique and highly influential ingredient in the recipe for competitive advantage among investment firms. Since the launch of the Institute in 2015, culture, leadership and diversity have been key industry themes. We explored these further in our research paper focused on the impact of culture on institutional investors. Since then, our members have used our research as a basis for measuring and managing culture in their own investment organisations and sharpening their cultural edge.

In 2019, we launched a global study of asset managers and asset owners keen to understand their own cultural signature and leadership footprints, and support more wide-spread positive cultural change.

Now, we are delighted to invite our Institute members to The power of culture virtual summit, which will explore key findings from our study so far with some of the world’s leading investment organisations, shedding light on the power of culture to support greater purpose and mission in the investment industry.

The summit will be split into three parts:

  • Day 1: 22 September at 3pm to 5pm (BST) – a virtual roundtable to discuss the results and findings
    This session will be for culture study participants only, who will have been invited directly. Joining instructions will be emailed to all attendees prior to the day, and will also be available from the day 1 webpage
  • Day 2: 23 September – study participants will share their experiences and learnings
    All members who register for the event will receive an email notifying them once the videos sessions are live. These will then be available to watch anytime from the day 2 webpage
  • Day 3: 24 September at 3pm to 4pm (BST) – a virtual live session for Institute members focused on key findings from the study, including case studies and takeaways for leadership
    This live webinar session is available for all members to register to, upon which you will be emailed joining instructions prior to the day. Joining instructions will also become available from the day 3 webpage.
