In these unprecedented times, the GrowthInvest Adviser Hour brings together a panel of industry experts to provide insight and opinion on the effect of the last 9 months on the investment landscape, including a look at the impact of Covid-19 on portfolios, sector specific "winners and losers", and a view from the panel as to the overall investment outlook over the next 6-12 months.

This will be discussed alongside key areas for advisers and their clients, such as Fee Transparency, Liquidity, Diversification & Risk and how advisers can introduce VCT to a wider section of their client base.

Hosted by Lawrence Gosling, Episode 2 of the Autumn Series features a star line-up of both old and new leading industry figures and commentators featuring guests from Downing, Foresight, Albion Capital and the AIC.

Tune in at 10am on Thursday 26th November for this special show, and find out the latest on key industry trends, opportunities and challenges, and what it looks like to be an adviser at the forefront of tax efficient investments in 2020.
