Richard Davies spoke this week at the Edison & Trust Associates Investment Company Seminar held at the offices of Edison in London. Richard set the scene for the seminar with an overview of the UK investment trust sector in terms of current and historic share ownership, based on RD:IR’s granular analysis of the share registers of our circa 200 investment trust clients.
The audience of investment trust chairs then heard from two representatives of the investor platform industry, Moira O’Neill of Interactive Investors and Mark Walter of Hargreaves Lansdown, who talked about how their platforms operated and the future of investment trusts on platforms.
With such uncertainty and potentially big market change coming up over the next few years, it was a great occasion to hear from other people working in the sector. We thank both Edison and Trust Associates for organising such an insightful event.
