Collins Stewart Wealth Management, the largest investment company in the Channel Islands, is holding its inaugural annual conference in both Jersey and Guernsey next week.

The Collins Stewart Wealth Management Investment Conference will take place at the Royal Yacht Hotel in St Helier on Monday (7 June) and at the Old Government House Hotel in St Peter Port on Tuesday.

Delegates will be able to hear the latest investment views from some of Collins Stewart’s top analysts, with presentations covering individual asset classes, the use of the latest money management techniques and various approaches to investment risk. The speakers at both events will include Collins Stewart's chief investment officer in Jersey, Nigel Cuming, who will explore the topic ‘A normal recovery in an abnormal world’, and their London-based global strategist, Robert Jukes, who will discuss ‘Portfolio risk – how we view it and how we manage it’. Robert is responsible for providing top down macroeconomic ideas and strategies and has a particular interest in portfolio construction and risk management.

In Jersey the opening and closing addresses will be given by the Chairman of Collins Stewart CI Ltd, Martin Bralsford, while in Guernsey that task will be undertaken by the Head of Guernsey Portfolio Management, Paul Meader.

Collins Stewart Wealth Management's Chief Executive Officer, Grahame Lovett, said, ‘We have put together a range of speakers to provide an insight into the current investment views of our specialists across various asset classes.

‘From the current income conundrum to the complex skill of hedge fund selection, this conference is designed to provide delegates with our latest thoughts on today’s investment climate. In addition, we hope to give clients a look under the surface of the Channel Islands’ largest wealth manager and demonstrate to the islands’ investment communities the depth of experience underpinning our portfolio management services.’
