With presentations from directors Harry Morgan and Jon Hodesdon as well as senior portfolio manager Ken Wilson IFAs will learn about changes to PEP Legislation and the opportunities arising which will allow for more flexibility and choice for investors. Discussions will include a background to the role of fund of funds and how the options available offer an effective method of achieving diversification and active management. A look at the investment process and which methods are appropriate for particular circumstances. Portfolio planning and issues which should be addressed when choosing an investment portfolio for clients as well as an overview of Global Markets.
EFM spokeswoman Marianne Cantley said: "Following the end of the ISA season, this is a good time for IFAs to consider reviewing their clients' existing portfolios. In volatile markets it becomes even more important for IFAs to monitor existing portfolios to ensure that they are achieving an appropriate level of diversity."
