Global Equity - Thought Leaders Series, Part 1
28 April 2016
William Low, Head of Global Equities discusses the role of pragmatism and free-thinking and how these concepts can be applied to investing. A pragmatic or free-thinking approach compels people to think outside the box and not rely on what’s happened in the past when making decisions about the future. In the first of two conversations with Vanessa Stoykov creator of the "No More Practice" series, Will talks about the impact of pragmatism on investing and the importance of a free-thinking approach in our evolving and increasingly complicated world.
