Stephanie Flanders, chief market strategist Europe at J.P. Morgan Asset Management and former broadcast journalist is in Guildford on 26 November as guest speaker at an investment seminar for lawyers hosted by HFS Milbourne, the financial specialist.

Stephanie, who delivers insight to professional investors worldwide in her role at J.P. Morgan, will provide an economic update and an overview of the current investment markets, after which there will be a Q and A session.

The half day seminar also includes ‘moving towards holistic advice’, a look at the impact of the convergence of legal and financial disciplines heralded by the Legal Services Act which will be presented by Ian Muirhead, chairman SIFA, the trade body for solicitor financial advisers.   Plus Iain Halket, chair of HFS Milbourne’s investment committee will report on HFS Milbourne’s Strategic Portfolio Service and the way it is used to ‘safely manage clients’ money’.

Stephanie’s career has included a role as BBC economics editor where she presented numerous television and radio programmes, including her own economics discussion show, ‘Stephanomics’, named after her influential blog. Prior to joining the BBC in 2002, she worked as a reporter at the New York Times, a speechwriter and senior advisor to US Treasury Secretaries Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers, a Financial Times leader-writer and columnist, and an economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the London Business School.

“Stephanie is very highly regarded within the industry and we are delighted that she has agreed to share her views on the markets with us.  We are hoping that as many lawyers as possible are able to join us for what should be an interesting morning of debate, varying opinions and sharing of information,” said Rod Milne, joint managing director, HFS Milbourne.
