Uk Investment Conference 2013 Highlights

Investing in different tomorrows

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has hinted at an exit strategy for money printing. Investors have been forced to ask whether the world is ready for central bank cold turkey and their answer, initially at least, appears to be a resounding no, marking a halt to the steady rise in risk assets.

The frantic search for income continues and moves ever further afield into new territories. This adventure is not purely geographic and it is leading investors to consider alternatives to the traditional income producing asset classes. With no obvious route map, we ask and answer how investors may effectively anticipate risk and where can they find quality investments in the race for yield generating assets.

We gathered some great speakers and opinion leaders to share their views.
