Skandia will hold a series of adviser seminars in March focusing on investment strategies and solutions in both bull and bear markets.
The seminars will give IFAs options and methods of de-risking client portfolios, with emphasis on risk profiling and asset allocation tools.
Skandia says these investment solutions could help advisers with the time challenging task of updating asset allocations and portfolio rebalancing.
Each seminar will include fund manager commentary, with further bear market strategies from Skandia International.
“Picking investments can seem like a much easier task in a gradually rising market, such as we have seen over the previous five years. But with the FTSE 100 rising only 3.7% in 2007, this year is likely to present new challenges,” Skandia investment marketing head Graham Bentley says.
“The focus for advisers needs to be investment strategies based on structured asset allocation. Portfolio construction has been revolutionised by the rise of risk profiling and asset allocation tools.”
The free seminars will be held at over 60 UK venues between 3 and 21 March. Visit www.skandia.co.uk/fa/regions to register.
