Earlier last month we held an investment seminar entitled “Trump & Brexit. What’s Next?” Over 70 guests joined us at the Emirates Golf Club to understand personal financial investment and get an insight into how Trumponomics and Brexit have affected world markets. Our invited speakers also explained best practice and overall investment strategy that reduces risks and deliver consistent returns.
If you could not attend, please see below the highlights, notes and full video of the event.
The atmosphere before and after the event was vibrant and social. The feedback was excellent. If you were not there, we would like you to benefit from the content and the experience of our speakers.
Our guests were presented with refreshments and canapés as they arrived and then one of our Senior Associates, James McMullan, started the evening giving thanks to our sponsors, organisers and audience in attendance. James briefly spoke about the work we do at Alpha and how we can assist with all aspects of financial planning, before introducing Paul Temperton, our first speaker of the night.
Paul Temperton is a former economist of the Bank of England and former Vice President of Merrill Lynch. He has been a consultant to Invesco since 2000 and established TIER, and economic and financial market consultancy.
