Chair: Toby Finden-Crofts, (Director, Research in Finance)
Panel: Gerry Perez (CEO, Interactive Brokers), Dan Jones (Deputy Editor, Investors' Chronicle), David Cornell (Ocean Dial Asset Management), Gareth Powell (Polar Capital)

The London Investor Show Lunchtime Debate. In many ways, the world is becoming smaller and countries are more interdependent than ever – think security, intelligence and economically. There are still many emerging economies that present investors with opportunities for fantastic growth – along with the respective risk elements. Depending on your appetite for risk, and your investment goals, seeking out these global opportunities could give your portfolio a boost, as well as providing valuable diversification. In a whistle-stop tour of the most exciting areas, the panel will debate the various investment pros (and cons) of each region, and whether they believe investors should be looking at these more closely. You’ll learn where and how to find more research on the areas, the investment opportunities therein and where to go for more discussion before you decide whether or not to invest. The panel will also give their thoughts on the current UK investment landscape, set within a global framework and now free to trade worldwide– and how UK markets are likely to perform over the next few years.

+ - 3:15pm - Welcome to the Real Dragon's Den: "How to spot exciting new companies and be a successful early-stage investor"

richard hargreaves 2022Speaker: Richard Hargreaves

Investing as a business angel offers fun and financial reward but the real world is much tougher than portrayed in the reality TV show Dragons’ Den. Anything can go wrong with a young company, from an unreliable product to a lack of customers, unexpected competition to management failure and, most commonly, simply running out of money. But small companies are a vital part of the economy, and the tax breaks for investing are a great incentive. And supportive investors are vital. Now is a better time than ever to invest in small companies hoping to make it big. There’s a tsunami of investable businesses disrupting old industries with new technology and new methods. The rewards can be huge if you are patient, sensible and smart. And there’s the satisfaction of helping to bring a new and valuable thing into the world. Join Richard Hargreaves as he talks you through how to invest, what to invest in, how to manage your investments and how to make money. Richard Hargreaves has invested in young companies for almost 50 years. Let him show you how being a business angel can be fascinating, fun and profitable.
