Virtual Afternoon Tea Replay – With Neil Bage

We were delighted in early June to be joined once again by Neil Bage from Be-IQ for the latest in our series of Virtual Afternoon Tea webinars.

In the hour or so that we had Neil with us he took us once again into the world neuroscience and explained the many ways that our brain can fool us as it tries to make sense of the world. He explained the danger of misreading the information we have access to when we’re trying to make a decision and gave us some advice for how we should think about this When we find ourselves trying to make decisions in our own lives. Finally Neil talked about the nature of memory and how all may not be quite as it seems when we are convinced we recall how something happened.

So to see what links armed robbery, lemon juice, photographs of Norway, Charles II and our ability to make decisions in a world increasingly full of information, be sure to catch up with this fascinating discussion below.

Our 2019 Annual Investment Report

Marcus, February 19th, 2020

We couldn’t agree more with Paul Samuelson that an investment portfolio should aim for steady growth rather than taking risks for the chance of making gains, however exciting or tempting that may be. 2019 saw a continued trend for the UK retail market to adopt the same approach, with net outflows from active funds of £3.1bn and net inflows to passive funds of £21.5bn for the year to date at the end of October.

Taking small steps towards a more sustainable world

Dominic, February 4th, 2020

It does feel as if the world is at an inflection point: step up to the challenges of global warming and other non-sustainable pressures on the Earth’s resources today or let our children and grandchildren reap the havoc of the melting ice caps; sea water level rises; deforestation and a decline in biodiversity; desertification and the potential social and migratory upheaval that will accompany it.
