Citywire South East Retreat 2024

In the year that Citywire celebrates its 25th birthday, we are delighted to bring the beloved Citywire South East Retreat back to our events calendar.  Join us on 6-7 June at Goodwood House, West Sussex.

As always, this is a fantastic opportunity to meet with likeminded people in the profession, share ideas and most of all to hear from influential fund managers who will give their insight into different strategies for handling client investments. Pair that with some thoughtfully selected keynote speakers, and it has all the makings of an event you do not want to miss.

As with all of our regional retreats, there is no charge for attending (attendance is strictly by invitation only), and you will earn up to 8 hours of structured CPD.

Learning Objectives:

  • Engage with market-leading investment strategies to discuss how they are navigating the current landscape
  • Describe the central role of agriculture in the path to net zero 
  • Discover how to build resilience in a high-pressure, fast-paced professional environment


It wouldn’t be a Citywire event without a phenomenal lineup of keynote speakers, starting with Wolfgang Manchau, columnist for the New Statesman and a  expert on european politics.  There is more than one election this year and results elsewhere will shape choices facing the UK Government and investors. After lunch we will then be joined by  Former President of the National Farmers' Union of England and Wales, Minette Batters. Minette will inform us on how the often overlooked pillar of our economy, agriculture, will drive the green transition.  To complete the lineup in the South East, on the morning of the 7th legendary rugby union referee Nigel Owens will be discussing resilience and dealing with difficult work environments.

With it being our first event back in the South East, we expect there to be high demand, so register today to secure your place. We hope to see you there for another great retreat!
