Global CEO Summit: ‘After the adrenaline comes tension and stress’

Mental health was high on the agenda at the recent Citywire Virtual, Global CEO Summit.

‘As the adrenaline starts wearing off, you can see the tension and stress rise,’ says one of the chief executives. It was also important to think about work space more creatively, says another CEO who does his 10,000 steps while holding remote board meetings.

The Citywire Virtual, Global CEO Summit brought together eight chief executives of asset management firms that collectively manage assets of around £3.8tn (or $4.7tn) from the UK, Europe and the USA.
