It has been a tumultuous year for private investors as global markets react to rising inflation and interest rates, making the search for future growth an even harder task.

As the world continues on a path of rapid transformation, investors are having to rebalance their portfolios and anticipate key trends — and the FT’s next reader event is designed with this in mind.

Organised by FT Money’s sister publication, Investors’ Chronicle, this two day digital event on June 15-16 will bring together experts from across the financial industry, from advisers to fund managers, to share exclusive insights and unearth key trends for investors in the months to come.

In the post-pandemic world, which industries are bound to grow and which will struggle to bounce back? How should the changing investment landscape be reflected in your asset allocation strategy — and what can investors expect as the world continues on a path towards net zero?
