Meeting: MGI Global Balance Sheet report launch
Wednesday 24 November, 08:00-11:00 GMT
OMFIF convenes an in-person roundtable to discuss the findings of the McKinsey Global Institute’s latest report, ‘The rise of the global balance sheet: How productively are we using our wealth?’.

It provides an in-depth look at the global economy after two decades of financial turbulence and more than ten years of heavy central bank intervention.
