D&G Independent Attends T.R.I.P. Seminar

24-Oct-2017 On Thursday 19th October, directors and independent financial advisers at D&G Independent Limited travelled to Manchester to attend a seminar on pensions, investments and regulatory issues hosted by Prudential.

Prudential is currently hosting nationwide T.R.I.P. (technical, regulatory, investment and planning) seminars to open discussions with independent financial advisers about the current political and economic climate. The seminar in Manchester was led by independent consultant Rory Percival, one of the UK’s leading regulatory commentators and a former technical specialist at the FCA.

During the seminar, IFAs from D&G Independent took part in a lively question and answer session with Rory Percival during which he clarified the FCA’s current expectations and highlighted industry best practices. Commenting on the event, D&G Director Gary Slater, said:

“We were very keen for our entire team to attend this valuable and insightful seminar. It provided a greater insight in the current pension changes as well as an opportunity to review investment markets as we head into 2018.

“As a result of Brexit and changes to the political landscape, we have been supporting our clients through a particularly turbulent time. Overall, we wanted to acquire greater clarity regarding the UK’s current economic position at a time of political uncertainty.  As an IFA working for people living across North Wales and the Northwest, we were pleased to attend this seminar so we can continue to stay abreast of the latest economic and political developments at a time of great change for our country.”
