Fidelity International will host a series of volatility workshops for advisers throughout November, at 24 venues nationwide.
The workshops, on the theme of ‘looking beyond the credit crunch’ will analyse the current state of the markets, identifying signs of recovery and highlighting opportunities available in challenging conditions.
They will tackle questions such as: Is there a rational explanation behind these violent market movements? And when will it stop getting worse?
Also aiming to discuss the implications of the global economy moving into a reflation phase, the workshops will identify whether bonds, equities, property, cash or commodities will do well in the next phase of the economic cycle.
They will also address the merits of diversification in volatile markets, fixed income asset classes and how investors can be seduced back into long-term investing.
Peter Hicks, head of the IFA channel at Fidelity International, says: "At a time when markets are unpredictable and clients are nervous about investing, it is important to provide as much useful information as possible that is simple and transparent enough for IFAs to use with their clients.”
He believes it is equally important to keep an eye on the long term as it is the present.
“Advisers are faced with new challenges when investor sentiment is low and these workshops will highlight the opportunities that are available and to offer an insight into what we believe the next stage of the economic cycle will be."
