On 24 December, ‘The Global Lead’ published Alastair’s guide to the US midterm elections.
On 11 September, Alastair was guest speaker at a Bank of Singapore investor conference held at the Shangri-la Hotel in Singapore. Over a lunchtime conversation with BoS’s Chief Economist Richard Jerram he explored a number of political and geopolitical risks on investors’ radar screens as well as warning of possible financial risk as the Trump Administration’s politically driven deregulation agenda advanced.
This was the second time that Alastair has been invited to speak at a BoS client event this year.
In August, Alastair formally joined the team of The Global Lead, a web-based channel promoting “education, advocacy and activism to encourage and create positive social and environmental changes”. His third article, on the Trump Administration and Stephen Bannon, was posted on 21 August.
