Threesixty seminars for advisers focus on offshore funds

IFA services provider Three-sixty is staging a series of seminars over the next month on offshore investment.

The next series of its Key Issues seminars will address the intricacies of the major packaged investment contracts, including onshore and offshore bonds, unit trusts and Oeics, and examine the situations in which each of them provides the most suitable option for clients.

The seminars, which are being staged in association with Standard Life Investments, will begin with an overview of the offshore market, cons-idering why the investment landscape is continually chan-ging and, by the use of case studies, look at demystifying and simplifying offshore investing so that IFAs are better equipped to offer a wider range of investment options to their clients.

The seminars will take place in Birmingham, Belfast, Epsom, Manchester, Bristol, Norwich, Leeds, Southampton. Glasgow, Edinburgh and Watford.

Threesixty partner David Ingram says: “The offshore market can seem daunting but, once the misconceptions have been removed, IFAs who are aware of the opportunities find that they offer a whole new dimension to the advice they give. These seminars will help them navigate this market.”
