UK focus for Invesco Perpetual roadshows

Invesco Perpetual is beginning the Isa season with a series of roadshows starting in Belfast on January 11.

The focus will be UK investment, in line with the fund firm&#39s main theme this season. Speakers include UK growth fund manager Stephen Whittaker, high-income and income fund manager Neil Woodford, income and growth investment trust manager Mark Barnett and fixed-income managers Paul Causer and Paul Read.

They will visit 14 venues including the Hilton Glasgow, Sheraton Grand Edinburgh, Gosforth Park Marriott Newcastle, Mere Golf & Country Club Manchester and the National Motorcycle Museum Birmingham. The roadshows end at the Brewery in London, on January 23.

Whittaker says: “We believe the UK economy is currently one of the best in the world. We are looking at a subdued recovery in the UK this year compared with the possibility of recession in other economies. UK investors should certainly be looking to the UK for opportunities of good returns.”
