Wednesday webinar at one: Growth investing - stock picking and earnings growth

Wednesday 19 May 2021 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

Quality and growth are two of the most researched factors in equity investing. Quality companies usually demonstrate sustainable earnings growth, a key component in the growth factor, and can therefore drive above benchmark investment returns.

This webinar brought to you by CFA UK's Investment Practices working group, will discuss how to identify these companies and also how to calibrate risk when building a diversified equity portfolio.
