How Global Equity Income can help investors in an inflationary environment

We will be analysing the benefits of Global Equity Income in an investment portfolio. As central banks' battle against inflation continues, investors face future rate volatility and moderating economic growth. The managers will discuss the economic backdrop for this hiking cycle, inflation drivers and expectations, and the potential implications for equity investors navigating interest rate risk.


Guinness Ventures: update on tax-advantaged growth-stage investments

The Guinness Ventures team will give an update on the investment environment and the range of products we offer in the tax-advantaged space. With over 10 years' experience of unlocking potential in growth-stage companies from EIS and AIM to the newly-launched Guinness VCT, the team will highlight opportunities and developments in the sector.

The energy transition and how investors can benefit

The world is transitioning to a sustainable energy system, driven by economics, security of supply concerns and climate change. During the presentation Will/Jonathan will cover:

  • What the energy transition looks like and why it is occurring

  • The likely path for oil & gas markets

  • The outlook for renewable energy & energy efficiency

  • How we invest in these themes


Asia & EM: a new paradigm for growth and income

Asia has powerful attractions for investors. Faster economic growth and increasing domestic wealth present an investment opportunity with increasingly valuable differentiation from developed markets. What's more, growing numbers of stable, cash-generating companies offer diversified income streams. With Asian equities looking good value, we will lay out a robust approach to accessing the growth and income on offer.
