Talkback

“Yes. ABN has sufficient financial strength to recruit new managers and, in merging with Artemis, it has a ready-made range of funds and good managers available to it.” Simon Clements, S&G Financial Management

“Yes. I have every confidence in Artemis&#39s UK fund managers.” Simon White, White Financial Management

“Yes, at the moment, as £1.5bn funds under management is not too large and Artemis has a good track record. The only problem is if individual funds get too big and it gets harder to invest in smaller companies.” Tony Byrne, Byrne Williams

“Not sure. I need to study it in more detail to make up my mind.” Alan Stewart,Alan Stewart & Co

“Yes. ABN has a good sales and marketing structure and Artemis has very good managers, so I think the new firm improves on both companies. I will use it.”Sohan Jheeta, Personal Investment Planning Service
