London Stock Exchange and Shares Magazine announce second Stock Market Show
- One day education event for private investors on September 12
- Opportunity to meet listed companies’ CEOs and management teams
- Exhibitors to include corporate brokers, AIM company Nomads and private investor service providers
- Exhibitor spaces now available
Building on the success of last year’s event, London Stock Exchange and Shares Magazine – a leading weekly investor publication - will host the second Stock Market Show, a major private investor conference and exhibition.
The one day event will be a platform connecting individual investors with listed companies and industry experts, helping them gain an insight into investment options, and how best to make informed investment decisions.
This year’s event will take place at the Business Design Centre, Islington on Saturday 12 September and is expected to attract more than 1,500 private investors.
Last year’s inaugural event featured 25 public company exhibitors, 50 speakers over 5 stage representing a broad range of industries from pharmaceuticals to mobile marketing and including presentations from their CEOs. In addition, the Show offered expert seminars on investment in growth companies, managing multiple investments, portfolio management and introductions to the variety of equity investments and services from London Stock Exchange.
Brian Schwieger, Head of Equities at London Stock Exchange Group, said:
“The combination of the Government’s significant changes to the UK’s pension system and investors’ ability to include AIM shares, now free of Stamp Duty, in their ISAs means it is more crucial than ever that private investors are as informed as possible about approaching the market. The 2015 Stock Market Show presents an unrivalled opportunity to meet CEOs and management teams of listed companies as well as the UK’s leading retail brokers and trading technology providers.”
Mike Boydell, Managing Director, Shares
"At Shares our goal is to help investors to be better informed and to better understand the investment options and opportunities available to them. The Stock Market Show is designed to educate and empower and will give new investors a great foundation and more experienced investors practical ideas and strategies to consider."
The event website is www.thestockmarketshow.com, pre-registration is open and the 2015 agenda will be updated in due course. If you are interested in presenting or having a stand at the event please contact Roland Spencer firstname.lastname@example.org 020 7378 4431.
