Platforms and Investment Trusts - Webinar
Are we going to see a rise in the take up of investment trusts as we head towards the implementation of the RDR in January 2013? What do advisers need to consider when buying investment trusts through platforms? With “the big three” still not providing access to investment trusts, is that trend set to change? Or as an investment vehicles are investment trusts still tarnished with the historical lack of commission payments and complex investment structure?
Bill Vasilieff this week took part in an interesting round table debate hosted by Bright TALK to address these questions and others surrounding the use of investment trusts on platforms.
Brian Tora was the moderator and the other panellists included Freddie Findlater, Head of Adviser platforms at The Platforum; Dr. Kieran Drake, Research Analyst, Winterflood; and James Saunders Watson, Head of Investment Trust Marketing, J.P. Morgan Asset Management.
