An article highlighting the most topical issue of the week. From emerging markets to natural resources, or property to pensions, we’ve got it covered.
As the introduction of new rules and regulations continues to create an unbalanced atmosphere within the financial services industry, we’ve decided to use this section to highlight the week’s most pressing issue. Throughout the article, Julian offers solutions and advice on how to manage the problem, and how to report back to your clients.
> Marketing Support
Marketing seems to be the in word of the moment. Young City bods gloss over specific job titles by saying that they’re in marketing, making it the latest London buzzword.
But as our Digital Communications Executive explains in this article, content marketing can be one of the most useful tools for your business in this digital age – assuming you follow some basic rules of course.
Our next Events-Hub conference will be taking place at Claridge’s on the 2nd September 2014. The event will start at 12.30pm with registration and lunch, and the presentations will commence at 1.30pm. The conference will then end with networking drinks at 4.20pm.
