Skandia Investment Management is giving advisers a chance to meet and greet some of the managers behind its Best Ideas funds.
On Thursday April 24 managers Richard Plackett, Jonathan Asante, Dan Hanbury, Colin McLean and David Forsyth will talk about their best ideas and how they approach this unique style of fund management at Trinity House in London. Advisers will have the opportunity to question them on their styles and approaches during the conference.
The Skandia Best Ideas fund is an innovative breed of multi-manager investment where 10 managers are asked to invest in their 10 best ideas. The three existing funds, global best ideas, UK best ideas and UK strategic best ideas, have accumulated combined assets of over £850m since June 2006.
Sales and marketing director Rob Williams says: “This event is the first time advisers will have the opportunity to hear best ideas managers talking about their responsibilities within the funds. We are currently exploring the possibility of holding further conferences across the UK in the summer to meet the growing demand from advisers for this type of event.”
Admittance is by registration through Skandia’s sales consultants or regional offices.
