Sesame Bankhall hosting virtual conference

Sesame Bankhall Group is hosting its final virtual conference of 2010 on December 14.

The conference will take place between 11am and 3.30pm, with an update on recent IFA developments and a look at opportunities in 2011.

Over 5,000 Sesame members and Bankhall customers have viewed the virtual events so far either live or on demand.

The sessions allow advisers to participate in interactive panel debates via a live question feed.

Nick Kelly, group’s managing director at Sesame Bankhall, will open the conference with reflections on the past year, along with views on the evolving IFA landscape and recent developments within the Group.

The panel debates will include input from senior figures at Sesame Bankhall Group along with some of the UK’s leading product provider and investment management experts.

Keith Gilmour, Sesame Bankhall Group’s new Business Development Director, will close the event with a look ahead to 2011.

It will cover investment markets, tax planning, business transition and RDR, protection, learning and development and Sesame Bankhall’s new investment platform.

Kelly says: “With the latest expert insight on a range of valuable topics, this event is a great opportunity to help advisers gear up for 2011 and beyond. We will also be updating advisers on the developments being rolled out by Sesame, Bankhall and PMS to support them.

“In the current climate we appreciate that many advisers are more stretched than ever given the demands of servicing clients, business transition work and studying for qualifications.

“As part of our wider learning programme, virtual events such as this give advisers the opportunity to gain a valuable insight into a range of issues with minimal disruption to their working day.”
