Financial Advisers often regard closed-ended Investment Companies as a riskier investment choice.
Some confine their recommendations to more traditional open-ended Investment Funds.
My guest today is keen to promote the opportunities offered by Investment Companies and to overcome some of the perceptions people have about them.
Listen to Annabel talk about the differences between these investment vehicles and how they can form part of a well-rounded portfolio.
Hear about the work the Association of Investment Companies is carrying out in response to RDR, the training they are taking on the road and the initial success they’ve had integrating social media into their communications.
That’s all right here in episode 42 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.

So it isn’t a business book. Who cares. It’s a classic and we have to relax now and then don’t we?
