Investment seminars free with Killik & Co

Private client stockbroker Killik & Co is planning a series of free investment seminars, with the first one to be held in London on November 26.

The seminars are aimed at private investors who want to find out more about current market conditions and how they affect their investments.

Partners Paul Kavanagh and Justin Urquhart Stewart are hosting the semin-ars and will discuss what opportunities are available to the private investor in turbulent times.

The seminars will also give an indication of Killik&#39s reaction to market conditions over the past year, whether they think it is time to move into equities and what funds they recommend investors to buy or avoid.

Kavanagh says: “Private investors are naturally concerned about market conditions, given the current volatility around the world. As a result, we have deci-ded to host a series of seminars for private investors to give our views and advice on how to maximise your investments.

“With a personal broker to advise every client, we firmly believe that knowing when to invest as well as how is the key to a successful portfolio.”
