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 we 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
The China conundrum
The story has been one of a bursting property bubble that will bring China to its knees. But is that really true? And for investors, could the lurid headlines have created an entry point into the economic dynamism that China offers in major areas such as EVs, semiconductors, 5G tech and renewable energy? These are the areas for which the government is aiming to free up capital by its deliberate shrinking of the property sector. Our presentation will offer a framework for an informed opinion on the risks and opportunities in China.
