Welcome to the Q2 edition of Wealth & Finance International Magazine. As always, every issue we endeavour to provide fund managers, institutional and private investors with the very latest industry news in the traditional and alternative investment spheres.

Though the economic impact of COVID-19 cannot be overestimated, there are signs of optimism to be found on the financial landscape. After the rather swift baptism of fire we all experienced in March – as we rushed to strengthen digital infrastructure – we’ve settled a bit into this new socially distanced world we find ourselves in. Shocks to the stock market have levelled out somewhat, and indeed strengthened, across a plethora of industries. Of course, we’re not out of the woods yet, but we can once again see dappling sunlight in the canopy (if you can excuse the rather tortured metaphor).

The finance industry is more robust than most, with early adoption to digital services and an ability to be agile and dynamic when required. That holds true for all of the companies we have featured in this issue. From best in class artificial intelligence technologies to leading fund management firms, we’ve spotlighted just a few of the companies who are seeing success despite significant challenges.

In the meantime, I hope you all stay safe and well.
