GROW: Professional Development (April)

Our GROW events take place once a quarter and are designed to give you a varied range of CPD all in one go. 


Back to the future in 2024: a year of elections, recessions and everything in between – Fidelity

Fidelity encourages financial advisers to step into the DeLorean time machine as they go ‘Back to the Future’ and navigate the flux capacitor through financial markets. Journey through interest rates and the looming prospect of a recession, decipher the geopolitical maze shaped by the 2024 US and UK elections and focus on future themes that affect you and your clients. Simultaneously as they delve into these themes, they will be looking at the products and solutions that they believe are best suited to tackle the different scenarios that could play out in 2024 and beyond.

At the end of this presentation attendees will be able to:

  • Describe some of the geopolitical pressures on the global economy

  • Understand how regulation, ETF’s and AI may affect your future investment decisions
