Small Cap UK - Evening Drinks
3 May 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Spacesworks, Mappin House, 4 Winsley Street London W1W 8HF
Come along for an evening of networking and inspiration in the heart of London at Oxford Street’s Spacesworks.
This event is set up to facilitate an evening of networking and to present some of the innovation companies that are building momentum right now.
We encourage advisers and investors to come out of their silos and speak to start-ups more than ever before. Likewise start-ups need to be talking to, not avoiding, advisers from an early stage.
Why? Because, in the current climate they are being acquired, accelerated and invested in, in an unprecedented way and advisers are a funnel to introductions and opportunities.
Likewise if advisers are not engaging with start-ups they are not actively really part of the entire corporate community. These days a start-up is just as much at the front of innovation, if not more so, than the corporates and are being used by them as R&D centres and partners.
At the very least, meeting today’s start-ups, an intelligent breed of entrepreneur, allows advisers to present existing clients with opportunities for potential acquisition and investment in the future.
Come and listen to a mixed panel of advisers and start-ups who are the forefront of innovation in their fields and network.

SSX Family Offices Conference - Value - Based Investments
Wednesday 10th May 9.00am - 2.30pm
The Dutch Hall, 7 Austin Friars, London EC2N 2HA
With the upcoming transfer of intergenerational wealth at $30 trillion, how do fund managers assess economic risk in striking a balance between the requirements and regulations of portfolio mandates, the standards of ESGs and the desire to match the SDGs, alongside financial performance?
As recognised in the Campden Wealth and UBS Global Family Office Report 2016, the most important objective in family offices is the management of this transfer. Values-based investments have become the fundamental core strategy within family offices.
Impact investment provides a platform for the values of both the current holders of wealth, and their inheritors, to be aligned. 61% of family offices are either currently active or expect to be active in impact investing in the coming months. Some 47% of family offices believe that impact investing is a more efficient use of funds to achieve social impact than philanthropy.
The Social Stock Exchange event will discuss this strategy and the practicalities of transferring wealth between generations in the new world of the SDGs.
Our keynote speakers will be:
• Bonny Landers – Head of Sustainable, Responsible and Impact Investment Office at Sandaire Investment Office, Multi-Family Office
• Simon Smiles – Chief Investment Officer, Ultra High-Net Worth Individuals and Group Managing Director at UBS Wealth Management
For our panel discussion, we will be joined by:
• Stephen Brenninkmeijer – Founder and Principal, Willows Investments
• Edouard Muuls – Director, Virgin Management Limited
• Louise Kooy-Henckel – Investment Director, Wellington Management
• Florian Meister – Managing Director, Finance in Motion GmbH
• Kris Douma – Director of Investment Practice & Engagement, UN Principles For Responsible Investment
You will also be able to hear directly from the CEOs of impact businesses explaining their business models and their vision for the future.
Impact investment provides a platform for the values of both the current holders of wealth, and their inheritors, to be aligned and the Social Stock Exchange conference will discuss this strategy and the practicalities of transferring wealth between generations in the new world of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
