Half Time Review – How Are Investment Trusts Faring in 2011?
Hear from a panel of experts as they review the year so far for Closed-end Funds (or Investment Trusts), demystifying these funds and sharing valuable insights on how they are coping with the difficult conditions facing investors in 2011.
They will be discussing the new fund launches this year, how the investor appetite is shaping up and if the fact that wealth managers are more likely to use closed-end funds than IFAs gives them an edge. The panelists will also benchmark their performance against peer groups, such as open-ended funds.
They will explore:
•How managers are coping with the vicissitudes of the market
•Whether the closed end structure will help in the search for income
•What the sector might have in store for the rest of the year
