27 November 2018A Meeting of Minds Advisory Distributors - November 2018
As you may know Direct Lending was the world's fastest growing asset class in 2017. Changes to banking regulation post-2008 have led to its rapid growth and acceptance amongst institutional investors. Despite its recent popularity, it's something many advisers haven't worked with much but can you really afford to ignore it? We believe the answer is No. In this session, we will focus on the opportunity for advice. The majority of UK retail investors in Direct Lending have invested without advice, thanks in part to the strong growth of the Innovative Finance ISA and the very low rates available on Cash ISAs. But are investors taking on risk without understanding it? And does this mean there is an opportunity to advise?
