Celebrating long-term success
As Fidelity FundsNetwork marks its ten year anniversary this year, they wanted to focus on managers and funds that – like FundsNetwork – have been among the industry's leading lights for many years. I'm sure you'll agree that it's an exceptional assembly of talent and if you join them you'll hear how they have continued to deliver strong relative returns over an extended period.
What's more, chairing the presentations and discussion panels will be the ever-sharp and erudite Lawrence Lever, who last year celebrated his own ten year anniversary as founder of Citywire.
