The Top Down: Red October, Budget and a bumper year for investment trusts

The biggest stories of October 2018


This month, Jayna Rana and Mike Sheen are joined by Michael Martin, private client manager at Seven Investment Management to recap the biggest investment news from October.

In the first segment, The Month in Money, we discuss the biggest stories of the last month - including the sell-off otherwise known as Red October, the launch of the Smithson Invesment trust which is the largest IPO for any UK investment trust on record, and of course, the Budget. Meanwhile, in The Bottom Up, Jayna discusses how the investment trust sector has not just had a bumper month, but a bumper year with the largest number of IPOs seen since 2007. We would love to hear your comments, questions or suggestions for topics for future podcasts. Please email [email protected]
