Wealth Management Investor Forum - live webinar

The case for global investing

Important information - the value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest.

You’re invited

We’re pleased to invite you to watch our live webinar:

Date: Thursday 23 May 2024
Time: 6pm
Venue: Live Zoom webinar

Investment Director Tom Stevenson will kick the evening off with his market overview. He'll then put a range of questions to our panel of global fund managers featured on Select 50 - a list of our favourite funds selected by experts. Together they’ll cover everything from how they manage their funds and what they're up to at the moment, to what they're excited (or concerned) about in the current geopolitical climate, with elections happening in many key markets throughout the year and continued high interest rates.

As a panel they'll discuss the advantages of investing globally - both actively and passively - and cover the different investing strategies you might want to consider as an investor - such as income, growth and value. The event will then finish with a Q&A session.

Please register below to attend the forum.
