Fidelity forums to feature Bolton, Shah and Korhonen

Fidelity International has announced details of its annual Investment Forum for advisers, to be held at seven venues across the UK in October.

This year’s speakers include Anthony Bolton, Sanjeev Shah, Jorma Korhonen, Richard Skelt, Tim McCarron and Ian Spreadbury.

The theme is ‘Changing Times’ and the speakers will give views on their respective investment sectors and funds and discuss how they find the best long-term opportunities.

The forum will visit Edinburgh, Harrogate, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Southampton and London on the 1st to the 5th of October.

Fidelity International head of IFA channel Peter Hicks says: “We have an outstanding line up of investment talent speaking at this year’s Investment Forum. This is a great opportunity for advisers to hear from some of the industry’s best-known managers on a broad range of assets classes and markets.

“In addition to the main forum presentations we will be repeating the Q&A section, with questions from the audience, which proved so popular last year. Every single one of this year’s portfolio manager speakers is an attraction in his own right and, with Anthony Bolton looking back at some of the lessons to be gleaned from his long and successful investment career, the event looks sure to be in strong demand. I look forward to welcoming large numbers of advisers ”
