The countdown is now to the next European Performance Conference, taking place at the London headquarters of Morgan Stanley on 22nd and 23rd May.

In total, some 90 financial advisers will be attending this prestigious event entitled ‘Making Abnormal Normal’, including wealth management professionals from deVere Spain, deVere United Kingdom, deVere France, deVere Italia, deVere Germany and deVere Switzerland, as well as senior figures from GAM, a major international asset management group based in Europe, the U.S. and Asia.

I’m confident that once again all the delegates will take a great deal away from this event by learning and honing essential skills from some of the best in the industry, and by discovering how other experts meet and exceed heightening client expectations and adhere to the constantly-changing regulatory requirements in a fast evolving sector.

To my mind, being surrounded by so many truly inspirational and successful individuals will give the audience an incredible sense of motivation and enthusiasm that will further drive them on to be the absolute best they can be.

Conferences such as this are more important than ever before to capitalise on the real sense of recovery and optimism within the eurozone.  As I said in an earlier blog, during my travels throughout the continent, you can really sense the buzz is back, clients and the wider population are optimistic about the future, have a renewed confidence in the economy and are once again keen to do business.

Following the resounding success of the European Performance Conference in Frankfurt earlier this year with Goldman Sachs, in which some of the financial sector’s leading figures shared their wisdom and experience on a wide variety of industry-based topics, the London conference in May will be the second of three scheduled to take place in Europe this year.  The next proposed one will be in conjunction with JP Morgan Asset Management.

The positivity and energy surrounding these conferences really is astounding, and I fully expect another triumphant event in two months’ time in the British capital.
