The Covid-19 pandemic has caused fundamental changes in the economy that are likely to last for years to come. Each person has been impacted differently but, when viewed on a generation basis, trends begin to emerge. Similarly, some industries have thrived while others have essentially stopped. Government and corporate debt are at record levels and some businesses are currently surviving on government support. How do we build back better?

Join our panel of experts who will discuss the investment profession's role in supporting a recovery that could reverse some of the heighted inequity seen during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our panel will explore the key ethical questions created by the pandemic for the investment industry and try to provide insight into how investment professionals can promote the integrity and viability of the global capital markets for the ultimate benefit of society in the context of the pandemic.

The panel will begin by identifying the key ethical challenges created by the pandemic for both individuals and business. Next, they will dive into the different expert viewpoints on these key issues, before finally focusing on potential solutions. How can investment professionals invest to create a better post Covid-19 world?
