Barclays Wealth will be hosting a breakfast seminar with a twist later this month.

As well as being provided with insights on the global economic outlook for 2009 and beyond, guests will also have the opportunity to come face to face with the Barclays Premier League trophy which will be on display.

The trophy is making a fleeting visit to the island on the 23rd and 24th September and will be on display at the breakfast seminar.

The directors of Barclays Wealth Jersey have invited guests to join them at the seminar on the morning of Thursday 24th September where they will be addressed by Barclays Wealth Equity Strategist, Henk Potts.

Mr Potts joined Barclays in 1998 and was appointed equity strategist at Barclays Stockbrokers in 2001 where he works as part of a team formulating investment strategy for clients.

Mr Potts is guaranteed to deliver a challenging and informative seminar. He is well known in the media world, with regular appearances on Radio 4 and 5, GMTV, ITV, Channel 4, BBC News 24, Bloomberg and Sky News, as well as being both LBC and Talksport’s renowned morning City commentator.

Richard Corrigan, Director of Barclays Wealth in Jersey, is looking forward to the event.

‘Barclays Wealth is delighted to invite Henk Potts to the island to provide a valuable insight into the global economic outlook for 2009 and beyond,’ he said.

‘Henk is a very interesting speaker and will capture the interest of everyone attending the seminar. It is great that the seminar will also be hosting the Barclays Premier League trophy as part of its tour of the island and I am sure that this added attraction will make the seminar one to remember.’
