Basset & Gold Go On Tour with a Day Out At The Retirement Money Show
Our stand in the main hall, which was conveniently close to the coffee and snack area (able to get first dibs on the mince pies!), proved to be very popular with those attending the event. We also had the pleasure of hosting a speaker slot with a very informative and engaging talk titled, “How to Get More from Your Pension”.
The principal aim of this year's Retirement Money Show was to educate, empower and inform all those interested in their retirement and help people better understand the financial retirement landscape. Attendees were informed of which questions to ask in order to help them better understand the different asset classes accessible to them.
On the day, we brought along our very genial and professional Relationship Managers, Hannah and Visar, together with a Basset & Gold Plc Director, Daniel Smith, who were all able to provide answers on a range of questions. The most common questions we were asked were about the 2018/19 ISA allowances, the Basset & Gold Plc Bonds Interest Shield feature and the range of Pensioner Bonds we promote and if they are "SIPP-able".
The highlight of the day was undoubtedly our speaking slot, when our very own Institutional Relations representative, Matthew Ardron, provided an interesting and illuminating talk on the Alternative Finance Market, with a focus on market-based lending, what we do, what we offer and our mission. Matthew shared his insight in finding the right partners according to the 'risk appetite' and the importance of undertaking exhaustive due diligence.
Matthew also provided details on the benefits of investors partnering with Basset & Gold, highlighting the ease with which investors can manage their investments in the secure ‘My Account’ area, where investors can view their current holdings and see the amount of interest received to date, and where they can get details on their expected lifetime interest and find out when their next payment is due.
“It was a great day meeting many current and future Basset & Gold Plc investors and, in some cases, putting faces to names of investors only previously spoken to over the phone," commented Daniel Smith, Director at Basset & Gold Plc. “The importance of meeting investors face to face is invaluable. We look forward to repeating the event next year and supporting this city-based event. All in all, it was a very enjoyable and rewarding day.”
At the time of writing, the Basset & Gold event and speaker schedule for 2019 is being mapped out. Next, we’re looking forward to attending the Master Investor Show, the UK’s leading event for private investors. Watch this space for further details and updates on our presence there.
