Over the years I have organised a series of in-depth seminar with one or more top name professional investors to discuss their current thoughts on developments in the financial markets – what is moving prices, the stocks and funds they like, the risks they see and so on. I back up these interactive Q and A sessions with a run through of all the major asset classes. Where are they trending? What looks overvalued and what looks cheap? Which investment styles are working currently and which are not? These these exclusive invitation-only seminars are held in an informal but comfortable venue in the heart of central London.  Subscribers to The investment Reader enjoy priviliged entry at discounted prices to all these events.  You can also register and pay on an event-by-event basis.

untitledPeter Warburton spent 15 years in the City of London as UK economist and economic adviser for the investment bank Robert Fleming and at Lehman Brothers before establishing his own economics consultancy business Economic Perspectives. Earlier he worked as an economic researcher, forecaster and lecturer at the London and Cass Business Schools. He has been a member of the Institute of Economic Affairs Shadow Monetary Policy Committee since its inception in 1997. He is the author of Debt and Delusion, subtitled ‘central bank follies that threaten economic disaster’, a critical analysis of the uses and abuses of debt in the global financial system, first published in 1999. That book remains a must read for anyone still struggling to understand how the world fell ino the greatest financial crisis of modern times in 2008. I will be discussing with him the biggest threats we face now, and whehter the biggest risk we face in 2015 is inflation or deflation.
