UK ROADSHOW
23 Jan - 31 Jan 2017
 

Columbia Threadneedle

UK Equities

While the economic backdrop remains uncertain, UK equity investors that maintain a longer-term focus – and can withstand some volatility – could be rewarded with some exciting investment opportunities. Portfolio managers Chris Kinder and Mark Westwood will provide their insight into UK markets, how they are navigating the uncertain global macroeconomic environment and where they believe long term investment opportunities are, based on bottom up stock fundamentals.
