Leading investment specialist urges intermediaries in the North to hang tight
Investment professionals from across the North of England came together to debate the hottest topics on the global economic scene at a special conference hosted by investment manager, Quilter Cheviot.
The 2016 Quilter Cheviot Wealth Management Conference, held at Rudding Park, saw some of the UK’s most senior investment and financial management professionals explore a range of industry issues including the impact of Brexit, the volatile global market, tax planning and asian equities.
Firms represented at the event included Old Mutual, Invesco Perpetual, Intelligent Money, Blackrock and Granite Tax.
Leading UK investment strategist, Alan McIntosh of Quilter Cheviot, urged investment peers to look beyond current market uncertainties and see the bigger picture, in a presentation that identified and highlighted economic opportunities.
Speaking at the event Macintosh said:
“As anyone involved in the management of client investments will know, the markets have presented something of a rollercoaster ride lately, but whilst the going is tough at present, it is important to stay fixed on the longer-term view. Short term movements, whichever direction they go in, are rarely indicative of long term trends. There are always opportunities to be exploited and positive investment strategies to be pursued.”
Following the conference Head of Office for Quilter Cheviot Manchester, David Rothbury said:
“We had an excellent turn-out and, as intended, the event provided an opportunity for Quilter Cheviot to share its specialist insight with the regional intermediary sector. We place great importance on developing a dialogue with the intermediary sector and very much hope that attendees found the seminar valuable during these uncertain times.”
