The Global Investment Forum is an annual conference in which BMO GAM’s multi-asset team gathers to debate and discuss themes that will help formulate its view for the medium term.

To help crystallise its thinking, the multi-asset team takes insight from a diverse panel of independent experts, who this year shared their perspectives on topics including sustainable investing, decarbonisation, globalisation and Brexit.

Risk warnings

Our views contains forward-looking statements which can be identified by the use of terminology such as “may,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “outlook,” “project,” “estimate,” “intend,” “continue” or “believe”. These do not constitute investment advice or recommendations to buy or sell investments and you should not to place undue reliance on such returns and statements, as actual returns and results could differ materially due to various risks and uncertainties.

Any investment involves risk as market conditions and trends fluctuate. Accordingly, investment values may fall as well as rise and investors may receive back less than originally invested.

Steven Bell, our chief economist, introduces the Global Investment Forum and explains its importance in the multi-asset team’s calendar.
