Technologies Shaping the Modern World

Research Conference 2023

As long-term investors, the technologies that will change all our lives, in some instances profoundly, over the coming decades must be incorporated into our investment thinking today. So it will be of no surprise that this subject was one that we returned to repeatedly over the course of our Research Conference in May. We heard from Dr Hannah Fry, perhaps most widely known for her BBC and Bloomberg television series but also a highly regarded academic who through her work has followed emerging technologies, successful and otherwise, for many years. Following her conference presentation and an on-stage conversation with Investment Manager, Max Skorniakov, Hannah sat down with us to answer a few final questions for this video.
