Seek out strategy for investment

This month’s Money Marketing Live will once again provide intermediaries with access to the leading experts from the investment fund management industry. Taking place at the G-Mex in Manchester on September 27, the Fund Strategy arena will bring together an unprecedented number of presentations, workshops and seminars.

Key figures from leading investment companies will be speaking at the event on a wide range of issues from property investment to asset allocation, including Justin Urquhart-Stewart, co-founder of Seven Investment Management and Andrew Watkins, distribution director of Invesco Asset Management.

Simon Redman, head of business development at Deutsche Property Asset Management will discuss the potential pitfalls of investing in property funds, in particular the lack of transparency of information available. He will also offer advice on what attributes of different types of fund to look for.

Also speaking will be Dave Brown, investment development manager at Winterthur Life, who will identify the key issues surrounding portfolio and retirement planning.

A must-see at this year’s event is the Investment Question Time where visitors will be able to question leading experts on the current investment climate. Panellists will debate what is a suitable portfolio balance for current market conditions and where are the best places to seek out relevant information. Panellists will include David Harris, chief executive of InvaTrust, Brian Tora, director at Gerrard and Harry Morgan, director of private investment at Newton.

The Fund Strategy Arena takes place as part of Money Marketing Live and will feature 50 key industry speakers in total and over 100 exhibitors from across financial services. Along with seminar sessions, delegates will also be able to network with fund managers in the exhibition hall.
