Alternative Finance Showcase
ALTERNATIVE FINANCE Showcase
MEET UP TO SIX PROVIDERS OF ALTERNATIVE FINANCE INVESTMENTS IN ONE MORNING
Review a representative sample of investment providers of P2P loans, Debt-Based Securities and IF ISA products in one half-day event, without having to undertake your own time consuming research.
HEAR leading managers talk about their investment solutions
NETWORK with their investment specialists without having to commit to any further meetings
LEARN about the underlying investment strategies
COMPARE key investment information, including charges and levels of risk and return
What will the event cover
Each presenter is asked to cover the same five issues that we know are key concerns for advisers:
DETAILS OF MANAGER: structure, length of time in the market and financial strength
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE: target investment return and length of investment
DETAILS ON UNDERLYING INVESTMENTS: how will they generate returns
DETAILS OF ALL CHARGES: borne by both the investor and the investees during the product’s lifetimes
DIFFERENTIATION: what differentiates the product from others in the market
What advisers have said about our previous Showcase events
There is little enough education on this highly technical area of the market, so when you do have a chance to learn from and speak to 8 different providers at the same event, on the same day why wouldn’t you attend? A well-structured, informative and well run conference, which was an excellent use of my time.
What a great and succinct way to meaningfully compare providers and get an understanding of what they do, how they do it and what they charge for doing so.
Like a website comparison site for BPR providers but in the flesh.
A very well run event giving exposure to a large number of top providers in the BPR sector. Well worth attending if you are looking to research providers or increase knowledge in this area.
How is it different from
..an Alternative Finance Masterclass?
Our Alternative Finance Masterclass events are purely educational, That’s why they are CPD accredited. The speakers are there as industry experts and thought-leaders, under strict instructions to provide impartial education without pitching their products. The Alternative Finance Showcase turns that model on its head. Fund managers give product pitches, but in a structured environment, instead of the usual free-for-all. Intelligent Partnership curate the event to ensure that you get the same key information about each investment wrapper and opportunity, allowing you to easily compare like for like.
…reading the AIR Reports?
Unlike the Alternative Investment Report (AIR) series, this event will focus entirely on specific Investment Providers and their offers. We won’t spend long discussing generalities and basic information or the history and development of the market. The intention is to hear about some of the leading investment solutions without repetition or deviations into irrelevant side issues.
The Innovative Finance ISA Showcase is supported by investment experts from
