The world has changed since 8 November. Nobody knows how Mr Trump’s presidency will unfold, but as investors we would emphasise one important development already underway – the shocking of the investment community out of a stale and pessimistic collective mindset.
Join Neptune in London for breakfast and presentations on Tuesday 7 March in the City or Wednesday 8 March in the West End, where we will discuss the opportunities – and risks – being created in 2017. Members of our Investment Team, including Chief Economist & CIO James Dowey, and Head of European Equities Rob Burnett, will share their outlooks and fund positioning for the year ahead.
Places are limited, so please book your place early to avoid disappointment.
For more information, please email us or call 020 7074 3601.
