What is Foreword™?

Since 2013, Nikko Asset Management’s Foreword™ has been delivering world class insights to institutional investors and advisers across the globe. The event features a line-up of international speakers who offer their perspectives on the evolution of markets and where to find opportunities.

This invitation-only event encourages the sharing of insights and exchange of views between clients and industry professionals in a collaborative and thought provoking environment.

Sustainable Investing

In a world where technological advancements are growing exponentially and conventional wisdom is constantly challenged, it is increasingly important to focus on achieving long-term outcomes and sustainable returns.

To capitalise on this change you need to be agile, adaptable and flexible. As a global asset management firm we believe innovation is the key to investing in the future, and we aim to provide the insights that allow our clients to access these opportunities.
