Investor Seminar 2012

London 18 June 2012

Profit in a low growth era

Volatility, austerity and uncertainty are here to stay. The UK economy has still not recovered the output lost since 2007. The eurozone could be a mess for years to come. But turbulence brings opportunity – as Warren Buffett said, “Be greedy when others are fearful.”

With that in mind, two of Investors Chronicle’s best-known contributors will be presenting their investing ideas for the tough times ahead and bringing you top tips as to where high returns can be found in this low growth era.

The event will be split into a morning (9.00am – 1.00pm) and afternoon (2.00pm – 6.00pm) session consisting of identical content. You will hear presentations from some of today’s leading value investment professionals as well as exclusive investment ideas from Investors Chronicle journalists.

Sessions are broken up by a refreshment break with teas, coffee and biscuits as well as a question and answer slot, giving you the chance to put your questions to the speakers.

This event is £25 to attend. Limited places are available, early booking is advised.
