You may recall having received an invitation from us late last year to take part in our first Managed Funds webinar essentially covering Managed Funds 101 i.e. an introduction to Managed Funds for those considering them for the first time. I must say the webinar was both well attended and received.
This was the start of a whole programme we are building around "helping" people get into Managed Funds, focussing on the what, when and how questions. If you missed the webinar, or want to revisit it, it's available here for you to review at your leisure.
We plan to set up a series of webinars throughout 2010, so if there is anything in particular you'd like us to tackle, or if you want to give us some feedback for this webinar please feel free to do so (post your comments at the bottom of this blog).
I'm really pleased to announce the next stage of the programme where we have added new content, in the form of interviews with our fund managers, and a new regular investor tool to make your investing even easier.
We asked our fund managers to answer a range of questions once again focussing on the issues those considering managed funds for the first time, would want answered. These video interviews will give you expert insights into the how, what and why questions.
In early January we switched on our new regular investor tool, the Regular Managed Funds Investor Plan whereby you can select the funds you want to invest in; nominate how much you invest in each fund; nominate the frequency of the investments and we do the rest. For example if you want to invest $500 per fortnight in Fund "X", you can, very easily.
I'm really proud of what we started with the webinar late last year, and I know from the feedback at the time it was very well received.
I hope you get a lot out of the new videos and regular investor tool - let me know what you think.
