Description

Join us for the second IoD Leaders' Lunch of 2019 at Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa.

We are delighted to welcome Geoffrey Yu, Head of UK Investment at UBS Wealth, who will be giving a talk on trade wars, with particular focus on the US and China, entitled ‘Seeing the Wood for the Trees’.

Mr. Yu, who is a regular expert commentator on Bloomberg and CNBC, will discuss the gravity of the USA and China trade dispute, how it effects the balance of global economic power and the battle for tech dominance as a response to global megatrends such as population growth, urbanisation and the changing investment landscape.

Before joining UBS Wealth Management in January 2016, Mr. Yu served as the senior G10 FX Strategist for UBS Investment Bank for a decade in London and Zurich. Born in Beijing, he spent the bulk of his childhood in the UK before returning to China for secondary education. He holds a double BA in Mathematics and Economics from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota and an MSc in Finance from the LSE.

Lunch begins with networking drinks in the Champagne Lounge from midday, followed by a 2 course lunch with wine, coffee and truffles from 12.00pm and ends at approximately 2.00pm.
