Join our DFM seminar

Discretionary Fund Managers: are they a useful resource for IFAs or an unnecessary and expensive solution?

By Kevin White | Published Sep 13, 2012 | comments

Financial Adviser is hosting a DFM seminar at our London offices next Friday, 21 September, looking at how DFMs can help advisers in the post-RDR world.

Leading proponents and experts on DFM will be giving their thoughts at the seminar, and answering questions on the pitfalls and the advantages.

Panel members will include Dominic Ventham of Ascentric, Rob Burgeman of Brewin Dolphin and Bruce Ely-Johnston of London & Capital.

If you want to find out more about DFMs or think advisers should steer clear of them, we want you to join the debate.

The event is free - we’ll even supply refreshments - and will take place at Financial Adviser’s offices on One Southwark Bridge, at 8.30 for a 9am start.

Places are limited, so to book a spot or for more information please drop me an email at kevin.white@ft.com.
