Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Helping investments work harder in tough conditions

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 12.04.25Wealth Management and Financial Planning firm Brewin Dolphin are hosting a series of seminars in April and May to help investors to understand more about volatile market conditions, the implications of the EU Referendum, and to offer advice on how best to invest in when interest rates remain so low.

The seminars will be held at Brewin Dolphin’s office in central Newcastle, and at Ramside Hall in Durham. At each event, expert speakers will present insights into the topic and then be available to answer any questions.

Newcastle Head of Office, William Baker Baker explains, “We noticed that the recent changes relating to pensions aren’t fully understood; the EU debate is tit-for-tat and not particularly clear, and there have been profound changes to some previously popular investments such as Buy-to-Let. In essence, there’s confusion.

“We’ve seen clients successfully through unsettled periods of market volatility and regulation changes before, helping us to become one the UK’s leading wealth managers. We thought it would be a good idea to present our opinions and our approach, helping people to create a balanced portfolio of investments and offer practical advice.”

The first seminar is takes place on Wednesday 20th April in Newcastle at 2.30pm and is titled “What’s Happening in the GlobalMarkets”. It will be presented by top analyst Ben Gutteridge, Head of Fund Research for Brewin Dolphin. In the wake of increased market volatility and sweeping changes to financial regulations Ben will give his view on the markets, predictions, opportunities and implications of the EU referendum.

This will be followed by three “Investing for Income” events, two at Ramside Hall on the 28th April and the 26th May, and one in Newcastle on the 19th May. These will be hosted by Brewin Dolphin directors. Getting income from your savings is becoming harder than ever, with interest rates at record lows, changes to buy-to-let rules cutting returns on property and a volatile stock market hitting many dividend payouts.

Gary Fawcett, Divisional Director of Brewin Dolphin Newcastle said, “In these seminars we’ll be giving valuable insights on numerous topics such as the risks of leaving savings in cash, asset classes that have produced the best returns, the benefits of diversification, and how effective tax planning can boost income. Our aim is to suggest a number of different strategies that can help provide an income today, or later in life that will at least keep pace with the cost of living.”

The seminars are open to all attendees interested in investing, but could be particularly valuable to those with assets or investments worth £150,000 or more.
