Series of sessions in locations across the UK will focus on equity and bond markets and provide generic training for intermediaries
Invesco Perpetual has launch- ed into a series of intermediary breakfast seminars across the UK. The aim of the seminars is to supply advisers with generic training on investment issues.
Visiting more than 20 locations in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, the roadshows will focus on three distinct areas.
They will each begin with an overview of the equity and bond markets before moving on to analysing the role of risk in building portfolios and managing clients' expectations by matching risk to their risk tolerance. The seminars will also focus on the role of fixed interest securities in financial planning, seeking to promote its stable of funds managed by Paul Causer and Paul Read, its high profile fixed interest team.
The seminars are open to all advisers and carry a CPD award of one-and-a-half hours.
