Standard Life Investments is to hold a series of roadshows in January which will feature Keith Skeoch, chief investment officer, and focus on the outlook for global equity markets in 2000.
Skeoch, who joined Standard Life Investments in February from HSBC Securities, said: "Equity prices have had a choppy ride during 1999 but the trend has been generally upwards. Against a background of slow inflation and strong economic growth, the case for equities remains strong and the challenge for 2000 will be picking stocks, sectors and geographic markets which offer the greatest potential returns."
The IFA roadshow is Standard Life Investments' first since its launch as a separate investment company 1998. Since that time, funds under management have grown by £10bn to £70bn.
The company will also use the roadshow to announce details of its corporate bond product which will increase the number of funds in its £1.4bn retail range from 15 to 16.
Key roadshow dates are Caledonian Hotel, Edinburgh on 17 January, Glasgow Hilton on 18 January, Swallow St Johns, Birmingham on 19 January and Rudding Park, Leeds on 20 January.
