ShareSoc Investor Masterclass and Summer Garden Party

 Entertaining & Educational Evening for Investors

Our Investor Masterclasses are intended for investors with all levels of experience. A panel of expert investors discusses topics of general interest to our audience – and then we go on to apply the panel’s expert knowledge to examining a potential investment. Topics will be covered both at a basic level for the beginner, and also in depth for the more experienced investor. No matter what your level of expertise, we’re sure you’ll find something of interest and value from the discussion with our panel. One of the joys of investing is that it is a constant learning process and this is a great opportunity for you to hone your skills.

Next Masterclass and Summer Garden Party  

The next London Masterclass starts at 5 pm on 2ndJuly 2015, with registration and pre-event drinks served from 4:30 pm, with the main part of the event finishing by 8pm. It will be held at the offices of Killik & Co, in Mayfair, 46 Grosvenor Street, London W1K 3HN.  Killik and Co have kindly offered us the use of their garden area, on this occasion, where we will hold a “summer garden party”, after the Masterclass, weather permitting! An indoor option is offered, should we be unlucky with the weather. Wine, soft drinks and a cold buffet will provided, from 8pm – 9:30pm.

Your Host:

This Masterclass will be hosted by Richard Straffon, a former radio presenter and producer but now a full time investor.

Unfortunately, Chris Boxall is no longer able to participate in the Masterclass panel... but the good news is that the FT's John Lee has kindly agreed to join us instead. So now we have two ISA millionaires on our panel - investors we should all be able to learn from.

A few tickets are still available.

As a panellist I have four tickets that I can allow for investor friends at half price if any of you want to email me. It should be a great evening and the weather looks like it will be good for us too so why not join us for the top quality investor entertainment and garden party.

Didn't manage to attend this event, its a long way from my neck of the woods unfortunately!

Did anyone attend? Would be very interested on any views from the panel on Victoria Carpets in particular as I have held it for a while but everytime I think of selling some it goes up - nice problem to have!
