Advisers get to grill fund managers at Cofunds spring PLATFORM conference
Advisers will have the opportunity to grill fund managers in a Q&A panel discussion at the upcoming Cofunds spring conference in Bristol on the 10th March.
As part of the conference, advisers will have two opportunities to put questions to the attending fund managers in sessions chaired by Brian Tora of the Tora Partnership. The list of fund managers attending includes Philip Gibbs (Jupiter Asset Management), Jason Britton (T. Bailey) and Iain Stewart (Newton).
The conference will offer advisers fresh perspectives on investment strategies to support post work living by bringing together some of the best fund managers and speakers in the industry. As manager of both the Jupiter Absolute Return fund and the Jupiter International Financials fund, Philip Gibbs’ input will be one of the real highlights for attending advisers. A proven favourite with Cofunds users Gibbs had the most successful launch on the Cofunds platform in 2009 with the Jupiter International Financials fund.
Gordon Davidson, Joint Managing Director of Jupiter Unit Trust Managers said: “The launch of Philip’s two new funds has attracted a significant amount of attention at a time when macroeconomic factors are having a huge impact on the performance of stockmarkets. Philip’s reputation for correctly anticipating market trends and the flexibility of the UCITs III structure means the funds have the potential to deliver returns for investors, regardless of market conditions. The PLATFORM conference is a good chance for advisers to hear Philip’s current views and tackle him on the market issues they are interested in.”
Russell Lancaster, Head of Commercial at Cofunds said: “Our upcoming PLATFORM conference is a great opportunity for advisers to hear the thoughts of some leading fund managers first hand. With a great spread of knowledge in the room this conference will enable advisers to equip themselves with the latest industry views when looking to invest clients’ money for the long term. We are pleased to be able to offer our advisers the chance to engage with all our speakers including Philip Gibbs, a fund manager they are clearly very interested in.”
Speakers at the event will include independent views from Brian Tora, The Tora Partnership and Richard Romer-Lee, OBSR. David Roberts, Head of Fixed Income Portfolio Construction, Aegon; Philip Gibbs, Fund Manager, Jupiter; Shawn Mato, Fund Manager, Aviva Investors; Iain Stewart, Investment Leader, Newton; Jason Britton, CIO & Fund Manager, T. Bailey and James Wilkinson, Fund manager, Thames River Capital will also be speaking.
