Connecting forces to adapt, innovate, thrive
24 MARCH 2020
The Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle Street, Mayfair, London
NextWealth Live is our annual conference that brings together a community of thinkers and leaders to discuss and debate the forces shaping what’s next in wealth. The videos and links to presentations from the inaugural can be found below. The NextWealth Live 2020 conference will again take place at The Royal Institution on 24 March. The Royal Institution is famously where Michael Faraday discovered electro-magnetism. Like Faraday, we believe we need to push the boundaries of discovery.
Whether the forces we are facing attract or repel, NextWealth Live arms our delegates with fresh thinking and new ideas to take back and implement and will help us all to adapt, innovate and thrive.

Debate on Advice Models: At NextWealth Live we hosted a live debate on business models and advice. “This house believes that vertically integrated business models are for the benefit of the firm rather than the client.” Do vertically integrated firms bring efficiency, automation and robust investment governance or do they hang on to higher fees at the expense of independence and value for the client? Phil Young of Zero Support or David A Norman (DAN) of TCF Investment debated this topic live. Spoiler alert – the house view was carried.
In this soapbox, Lee Robertson challenges attendees at NextWealth Live to re-think adviser charging models.
