7IM steps up to the Summit
Our ever popular roadshow - with a difference
Obviously given the current situation we can’t be there in person. That being said, we weren’t willing to let the Summit pass us by so this year we are doing something a little different.
The team that would’ve had the opportunity to greet you face-to-face at one of our events will now be taking on a mammoth challenge, covering the length and breadth of the country (virtually of course), clocking up the miles by walking or running the distance to each venue we would’ve presented at, without leaving their local area!
But it’s not just about missing the bacon sandwiches and a catch up with your favourite BDM, our investment team would also have been there too, sharing their views and outlooks on the world of investing. So as we reach each location on our events map, our investment team will be sharing a view relating to that geographical location.
You can track the team’s efforts and read the connected investment commentary here over the coming weeks.
And if that’s not enough, the team will be raising valuable funds for some fantastic charitable causes.
COVID-19 caveat. Each participant will be following the strict government guidelines and the challenge will be completed virtually.
