As a reminder, the agenda of the last show was as follows:

  • Part One - Market and economic outlook for 2020

    Our ever-popular market update session returns for a review of the 2019 market, and a look forward to what our experts think we should expect to see in 2020.  It would be fair to say we’ve had a somewhat turbulent year in UK politics, and our specialist panel will discuss what effect this upheaval may have on the market over the next twelve months.   Things haven’t been any calmer globally, and we’ll also take a virtual trip around the world to see how trade wars and disputes are steering the international markets.  We’ll also hear what our investment gurus think will be the ‘ones to watch’ next year and what have been the surprise successes of 2019.


    • Richard Whitehall, Head of Portfolio Management, Aegon
    • Chris Arcari, Investment Research Consultant, Hymans Robertson
  • Part Two - Investing in 2020 and beyond

    After our experts have toured the global markets, we will take a unique look at investing in 2020 and beyond. Whilst traditional investment will no doubt remain strong, we will look at some of the newer trends and solutions and at how some of the more non-traditional routes may play a part in 2020 planning and beyond.


    • Gordon Pugh – Senior Business Development Manager, Blackfinch
  • Part Three - Meeting the needs of the 2020 client

    After hearing about the markets and about some of the solutions that may drive your 2020 strategy, we now look at what all these means against the backdrop of changing client dynamics.

    Intergenerational advice is becoming a real talking point amongst advisers – how do you protect the wealth you have helped to build and preserve, how can you influence beneficiaries and dependents and of course with the issue of care planning high on the agenda, this is becoming ever more prevalent.

    With this in mind, Gillian Hepburn – Intermediary Solutions Director at Schroders, leads a panel of experts as we explore some of the issues and opportunities coming your way in 2020.

  • Part Four - SM&CR: Last call and look ahead to 2020 regulation

    With just a week to go until the first wave of SM&CR implementation, our regulatory expert will provide a snapshot of Senior Managers and, crucially, make sure you’re on top of what happens next with this new regime.  There’s a host of other regulatory papers, consultation and policy heading our way in 2020, so we’ll also be taking a look at the upcoming news around vulnerability, suitability and the Fifth Money Laundering Directive.  We’ll also be discussing one of the issues having the widest impacts on the market at the moment; DB pensions

    The new Solicitors Regulation Authority 'Standards and Regulations' was implemented on the 25th November, providing opportunities for advisers looking to build partnerships with solicitor firms.

    The new regime introduces a 'firm' code of conduct as well as the 'individual' code of conduct for the first time and with it, an expectation that the businesses should establish firm-wide processes to ensure the professionalism of individual solicitors and this includes for third party referral.

  • Part Six - How can I take advantage of technology?
