The Economist’s Buttonwood Gathering is able to provide 7.5 CFA credits and 8 GARP credits to attendees.

Chaired by The Economist's Editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, The Buttonwood Gathering is designed for business leaders from the global banking and finance industry, as well as any senior executive who relies on a deep understanding of global financial markets and the issues and trends that most impact the future of the global economy.

This year’s Buttonwood will capture the state of the global economy as it slowly reaches for stability – from the US to Europe, on to Asia, Latin America and Africa. What new opportunities are opening for investors? How have financial markets, banks and companies evolved? Other key issues include:
