FSE confirms IFA conference programme
The IFA Centre-supported seminar sessions will run over the course of the two days and covers diverse topics including structured investment products, index investing, outsourcing and insourcing, and auto enrolment. There will also be sessions on both the equity release market and the buy-to-let sector.
The final session on both days will cover the Retail Distribution Review with Esrar Moitra of Optima RS on day one looking at how advisory firms can learn from the FCA’s signposts for firms since the start of the year, and Gill Cardy of IFA Centre providing a review of recent research into client’s understanding of the new regulatory world on day two.
James Prosser, director of Financial Services Expo, said: “Our aim has always been to provide a show which will interest all financial services professionals which is why we have worked closely with IFA Centre to offer this programme of seminars specifically for financial advisers.
“The sessions cover off a diverse range of topics and our speakers are experts in their field so all those visiting FSE should be able to gain a wealth of knowledge from attending.
“Given the fact the RDR environment is still a relatively new one which continues to raise questions we wanted to place it at the heart of this programme.”
FSE is also running a mortgage-specific conference programme put together in conjunction with the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) and the Intermediary Mortgage Lenders’ Association (IMLA). Full details on these sessions are available on the FSE website.
FSE 2013 takes place on 1 and 2 October at Old Billingsgate, London.
