Food and drink investment trends
On Wednesday 23 September at 16:00 BST, NutritionInvestor’s Webinar Series will begin with a conversation about investment trends in food and drink in the context of Covid-19.
Editor Murielle Gonzalez will be talking with Farzad Mukhi, a director in the Food, Beverage and Nutrition Investment Banking practice of Duff & Phelps, and Christopher Gale, director of YF Funding, the joint venture of Spayne Lindsay & Co and Young Foodies, the UK community of challenger brands.

Farzad Mukhi has more than 15 years of experience in executing mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance transactions for middle-market companies in the food, beverage and nutrition sector, and will share exclusive insights into M&A activity in the US and cross-border deals.
This is a unique opportunity for participants to engage and put questions to experienced financial advisors on fundraising, investing, and consumer and market trends.
Covid-19 and higher education: How universities and pathway providers are navigating disruption
EducationInvestor Global’s webinar series continued with a live panel discussion featuring Sir Anthony Seldon, vice-chancellor of the University of Buckingham; James Pitman, managing director, UK and Europe at Study Group; Julie Mercer, partner at Cairneagle Associates; and Glynne Stanfield, partner at Eversheds Sutherland. The conversation was moderated by EducationInvestor Global editor Josh O’Neill.
Collectively, these market experts discussed the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the higher education sector, exploring the ways in which universities have orchestrated swift transitions to online provision. Panellists also considered diversification strategies and reflected on what the future operating environment may look like, at a time when travel bans have thrown the academic lives of international students, and the pathways sector, into a state of flux.
