BIG ADVICE DAY
Big Advice Day 2021 is coming! Tuesday 15th June will see volunteer experts donating free one-to-one advice to small charities by telephone or web conference, with sessions covering the issues that matter to that charity. There will also be a series of informative live webinars available for attendees.

Where next for Income and Growth? Investing in a post-Covid world
11:10 - 11:55 AM
In this session, Richard from M&G will share his wealth of experience in dealing with the investment of charitable endowments and reserves to review just what happened to markets last year and to provide a look at how things stand now; going back to first principles, what do we believe the valuation signals are telling us? What are the key things to look out for when assessing different types of asset? Why are the concepts of risk and reward so closely linked? And, where do we believe the best opportunities may lie for improving income cashflow or future asset growth in the post-Covid era? There will be plenty of time for Q&A so, whether you are new to investing, or you simply want to update and build upon any experience you may already have, we would be delighted to see you attend on the day!
