How to research, analyse and use investment companies

Thursday, 14 July 2016
5:30 pm – 7:15 pm

The Insurance Institute of Sussex is delighted to invite members and their guests to this free 1.5 hour seminar where Nick Britton, Head of Training at the Association of Investment Companies will be exploring the main features of investment companies and how they differ from open-ended funds (OEICs).

During the evening, Nick will look at features such as discount/premium pricing and gearing and explain where to find the essential information needed to analyse and select investment companies, and how to interpret this information.

Nick will provide practical tips about how investment companies could be appropriately incorporated into clients' portfolios, focusing on the risks and potential benefits.

He will also cover some more specialist areas (see below) meaning that this event is suitable both for those who have little knowledge of investment companies and for members with more experience or with specific interests.
