Aifa director general Paul Smee is to chair a live webcast covering polarisation, stakeholder and the law of liability, to be broadcast on Global Business Television between 12.30pm and 2pm on Thursday, November 22.
The panel will include Sofa chairman John Porteous, LIA public affairs director John Ellis, Institute of Financial Planning chief executive Nick Cann, Baronworth Investments IFA Colin Jackson, ProAct Legal director Gareth Fatchett, Consumer Association senior policy adviser Mick McAteer and ScotEq pensions expert Stewart Ritchie.
GBTV is asking IFAs to email questions to the panel at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7222 8450 if they would like to take part in the debate.
The webcast from Channel 4's studios is backed by Money Marketing and product providers, including Britannic Money, Scottish Equitable, First State Investments, Selestia and New Direction Finance.
Pre-recorded interviews with providers will be broadcast at intervals during the debate. GBTV is hoping to make this type of webcast for IFAs a monthly event next year and it has distributed a CD-Rom of a 60-minute video covering news and current events for advisers.
GBTV managing director Dominic Moran says: “We want to create forums where people in the sector can take part in a lively debate.”
