Stick Cricket will put you to the test

Money Marketing has teamed up with Ignis Asset Management to bring you the best in desktop sporting action.

A busy summer for international cricket starts this week with the first Test against the West Indies at Lords. Later this summer, England competes in the World Cup Twenty20 competition and Australia are back in England for the Ashes.

As you follow the live action, Ignis and Money Marketing are inviting you to play along from your desk with the best and most addictive online cricket game, Stick Cricket. Registered players will be entered in weekly and monthly competitions running throughout the summer.

Starting from May 11, each week, one player will win a cricket bat signed by the Middlesex team (including England captain Andrew Straus and team mate Owais Shah) and each month someone will win a signed Middlesex shirt.

The winners will be drawn at random so it does not matter if you are technology’s answer to Sachin Tendulkar or a pixellated Darren Pattinson.

The winner of the end-of-season grand prize will take part in a private net session at Lord’s with leading members of the Middlesex team.

The game, as well as full details of the competition and prizes, can be found on the Money Marketing website at

Boosting our annuity strategies

Targeting annuity purchase in lifestyle strategies isn’t anything new but we’ve just lifted the bonnet and injected an enhancement shot into the end-point of these solutions. The recent volatility has shot short-term volatility into equity markets and painted a very turbulent backdrop but we’re also equally faced with a stressed fixed interest environment. This can […]
