The first Gresham Masterclass of the year was received with enthusiasm by local professionals, with a capacity turnout today. The event, which was the first of three planned Masterclasses for 2016, saw over 25 solicitors, accountants and tax advisors from the Manchester business community attend over two sessions at our offices in the centre of Hale.
The topics covered during the session were chosen based on feedback from previous Masterclass attendees. Firstly, JP Morgan provided an insight into the current state of the markets, providing commentary on factors set to influence the economy and the markets over the coming 12 months and beyond.
Following this, Standard Life gave us an overview of pensions and how the new rules may affect clients; in particular in relation to death benefits and the implication of recent changes on high earners.
Comments from the event included: “Excellent overall. Lots to think about!”, “two very interesting and thought-provoking presentations” and “excellent quality of speakers & slides etc.”
Morven Millar, Director at Gresham Wealth Management commented:
“Our Masterclass events have proven extremely popular with local professionals, with the number of attendees having doubled since we launched the concept last year. There certainly appears to be an appetite for events of this nature and as such, we will be looking at further topics and events throughout 2016.”
