Fidelity forum on the road

Fidelity’s is running an ann- ual investment forum at seven venues across the UK between September 26 and 30.

The theme for the fund firm’s forum is Cutting Through the Noise, with a view to helping advisers deal with information overload.

The events will be held in Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Southampton and London.

Speakers will be the company’s UK aggressive fund manager Sanjeev Shah, sterling bond fund Ian Spreadbury, European opportunities manager Colin Stone and UK equity mutual fund analyst Chris Ralph.

FundsNetwork will also be holding a series of workshops on opportunities for advisers presented by legacy with-profits investments while US commentator George Kinder, founder of the Kinder Institute of Life Planning in America, will speak on issues affecting advisers.

Fidelity head of IFA sales Peter Hicks says: “In today’s overcrowded marketplace, it can often be very difficult for advisers and intermediaries to know where to turn when they are looking for reliable information on the funds that are available to them.”
