Dresdner RCM's UK fund management team is holding a series of roadshows around the country in the new year.
The group has said it is not going to be launching a fresh Isa product next year but instead it plans to market its range of existing UK funds. Over three years to 8 December in the Micropal UK All Companies sector the group's UK Growth fund, managed by Justin Seagar, is ranked six out of 220. During the same period Dresdner RCM UK Mid-Cap, managed by Derek Lygo, is ranked two out of 220.
In UK Equity Income sector Dresdner RCM UK Equity Income, managed by Paul Sheehan, is ranked two out of 84 (over three years). The group's UK Smaller Companies fund, managed by Andrew Impey, is ranked 20 out 67 over three years in its Micropal sector.
As well as the four fund managers speaking at the roadshows Stuart Fowler, head of UK equities at Dresdner RCM, will also be giving a presentation. The first roadshow begins on the 17 January at Gatwick it then moves onto Winchester for an evening presentation. The following day two roadshows will be held one in Bristol and one in Exeter.
On 19 January the team goes to London. The following Monday, 24 January, there will be a presentation in Birmingham moving onto Yorkshire and Manchester on 25 January. The last two roadshows take place in Glasgow on 26 January and Belfast on 28 January.
At each roadshow the fund managers will give a presentation on their respective funds and their views for the year ahead. As a team they believe technology stocks will dominate next year. Fowler expects the FTSE 100 Index to reach 8000 next year as the telecoms and media sectors continue to surprise on the upside. In addition he predicts more growth stocks will be promoted into the FTSE 100. Away from technology related stocks corporate activity is likely to remain at high levels in the retail, financial and pharmaceuticals sectors, according to Fowler.
