Colin Nicholson on A Strategy for the Times.

Topic Description: Colin will introduce you to a unique aspect of his investment approach, which is centred on the management of risk. The starting point is market risk – the risk inherent in where we are in the cycle of bull-bear market phases. Colin will take us through a workshop-style examination of where we are now and from that derive a strategy for dealing with the opportunities and challenges for 2007. This will centre on his market exposure strategy, but will also touch on stock selection policy.
