The Big Thought 2021

Rudding Park Hotel, Harrogate

Wednesday 17 November 2021

Looking at the world through a different lens:
20 leading fund groups in one beautiful place on one enlightening day.

In 2020 we moved our annual Harrogate conference online but this year, we’re delighted to welcome you back to the event in all its physical glory!

The conference brings you a look at the investment world through a different lens with up to the minute knowledge and insight from 20 industry-leading fund groups. With short presentations followed by panel debates from some of the most well-known fund managers, we'll dig deeper into research-led topics, examining where the current trends are going.

The conference will be moderated by Dominic O'Connell and our aim is to enlighten you on the latest investment news and updates from around the world. 

We'll start the day at 12:00 with a welcome from our CEO, Ken Rayner, closing after the final panel debate at 17:30. Geoff Mills, our non-executive director, will provide an RSMR business update before dinner at 19:30 and we'll be reflecting on 15 years of RSMR fund ratings during the course of the evening. 

With William Hague as our guest speaker and ample opportunity to network during lunch, breaks and the evening dinner, we do hope you'll join us to celebrate the return of our northern flagship event!
