Brexit's Impact on the Investment Management Industry in London
Just one year ago, all we had to worry about was unprecedented monetary intervention around the world, uniformly high asset prices, increased regulation and technology disruption like never before. Now we are mostly focused on Britain’s immensely complex and lengthy withdrawal from the European Union by a government that failed to win a majority a few weeks ago.
What do the biggest two political events of recent times mean for the industry - and for you?
Take the opportunity to reconnect as we kick off the Investment Management calendar with drinks, nibbles and a Fireside Chat at a lively venue with our Board members and guest speakers Nicolas Kahale (’81) and Christian Kern (’97), both long-standing members of the investor community in London.
Nicolas Kahale (CBS ’81): Nicolas initially worked in investment banking and capital markets in New York before moving to London to pursue an institutional asset management career. During the last 23 years he has held key roles at Salomon Brothers, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank and most recently Barings, based in London. Nicolas has an MBA from Columbia Business School and an MSc in Economics from University College London.
Christian Kern (CBS ’97): Christian has more than 20 years’ experience in the investment management industry in London, most recently as the Head of European Equity Research at J.P. Morgan. Prior to that he was Co-Head of Telecom Research at Lehman Brothers. His teams have consistently ranked at the top of the important Institutional Investor Surveys, with J.P Morgan’s European Equity Research Department achieving the top firm rank in 2017. Christian has an MBA from Columbia Business School and an MS in Engineering from Technical University of Munich.
