The discussion group of unherd insights.

UnHerd Insight is a peer-led, private discussion forum supported by institutional quality research and analysis. We focus on business and political intelligence for top tier investors and business decision makers. Our purpose is to generate new ideas for growth and investment in an intimate format that gives our clients the opportunity to engage and discuss idea privately.

Based in London, Singapore, and New York we draw upon our network of the most sought-after experts and ideas generators in business, policy, finance, and media.

We convene bulls, bears, contrarians and conformists to deliver a 360 degree view of the next big idea. This unique perspective, a diversity of experts and clients around one table, is the hallmark of an UnHerd Insight discussion event.

For a limited number our premium clients we also offer consulting to facilitate bespoke briefings and forums exclusive to the client’s business interests .
