Fidelity is bringing together managers from 18 top providers, including stars such as Chase Fleming's Andrew Spencer and SocGen's Nicola Horlick, at a FundsNetwork IFA conference next month.
The conference, which is to be called the Big e-asy, takes place at Wembley Conference Centre on November 21 and will focus on fund supermarkets.
The main speakers will be Ed McCartney, a senior executive from Fidelity's US business, alongside Cerulli Associates' Thomas Marsh and Richard Wastcoast and Robin Threadgold from Fidelity's UK arm.
IFAs will also be invited to attend four of the 18 smaller seminars which will take place after the main speakers. These presentations will cover everything from global trends to thematic investing and are being given by the industry's biggest names.
Other speakers include Fidelity's Anthony Bolton, Aberdeen's Ben Rogoff and Norwich Union's Richard Prew.
Fidelity associate director of wholesale UK marketing David Cowdell says: “Altho-ugh this is clearly a good way of raising awareness about FundsNetwork, it also gives IFAs the chance to get close to the top fund managers in the business. As far as I am aware, nothing on this scale has been done before.”
