No matter your investment experience, our events are designed to give you the best tools to invest with confidence.
Sustainable & Social Investing Conference – 12 December 2019
As part of our dedication to Responsible Investing, we were delighted to co-sponsor the Sustainable & Social Investing Conference in London on 12 December. Our Chief Executive, Richard Stone, delivered the welcome address and Keynote speech alongside M&G’s Head of Sustainability and Impact, Ben Constable-Maxwell. The day was filled with inspiring presentations and panel sessions from an array of subject matter experts as well as leading investment professionals from across the industry.
Throughout 2020, we’ll continue to focus on this important topic, including another Responsible Investing focused event in April, exclusively for our customers.
Polar Capital & Invesco - June 2019
We held another customer event on 20th June 2019 in association with Invesco and Polar Capital. Three top fund managers presented during the evening, with Rhys Davies discussing High Yield Income, Nick Brind covering Financials 2.0 and Ben Rogoff looking at Key Technology Themes for Investors. The event was held at the beautiful Cavendish Conference Centre in London’s West End and was followed by drinks and canapes, with a chance for customers to meet each other and an opportunity to chat with the fund managers.
Electric Dreams – March 2019
On Wednesday 6th March 2019, we held our customer event in the heart of London at the RSA. This time, we collaborated with Kepler Partners and brought in BlackRock World Mining to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a presentation from Alastair Bishop. There were also two other speakers; Stephen Lilley, fund manager for Greencoat UK Wind, and Jon Forster, senior portfolio manager for Impax Environmental Markets.
Baillie Gifford – October 2018
At our event hosted by Baillie Gifford, we invited customers to join us at the Caledonian on Princes Street in Edinburgh, offering fantastic views of Edinburgh Castle. The presentations were held in the Castle Suite, a listed room adorned with golden eagles and Scottish wildlife frescos and enhanced by magnificent chandeliers.
We heard from two highly engaging speakers; Catharine Flood discussing Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust plc and James Dow talking about The Scottish American Investment Company plc. Each presentation was followed by a Q&A session, with a great dialogue being created between the customers and the fund managers.
Our customer events
As part of our dedication to giving customers the best possible experience, we offer a number of customer events and conferences throughout each year. The idea behind them is to provide an opportunity for our customers to gain some insight into a wide range of funds, investment trusts and the markets, whilst also having a chance to meet some of our team and the fund managers. They also act as an educational tool for our customers to learn more about investing overall.
These events are held in partnership with different fund houses who provide various experienced fund managers to present during the evening. They may discuss their funds whilst also giving some analysis on the current economic climate or a particular sector.
We have plenty of future events currently being planned and we’re very excited to offer these experiences. We can’t wait to expand our Share:Talks events to even more customers countrywide.
