Invest in Progress

We are living in uncertain times. Join Investment Specialist, Claire Shaw, to learn how the Scottish Mortgage Team is managing the portfolio through this challenging period. Claire will explore why Scottish Mortgage believes that investing in radical innovation and companies building the future of our economy matters irrespective of the macroeconomic backdrop.

Learning objectives:

• Understand the unique philosophy that sits at the heart of Scottish Mortgage

• Understand why long-term structural changes in society are more powerful drivers of change and disruption than macro-economic or geopolitical issues and why it is rational to seek out the exceptional companies driving this change to maximise your chances for growth over decades

• Understand why the current environment leaves room for optimism for investors willing to take a long-term, patient view.
