About Invesco Perpetual

As one of the largest independent investment managers in the UK, Invesco Perpetual prides itself on its commitment to continuing professional development. It is by supporting advisers in continuing to develop their skills and knowledge that fund managers like us are able to help clients achieve their ultimate financial objectives.

Our investment approach is rooted in the view that there are no short cuts to long-term investment success. That is why we firmly believe the CPD Centre is a great idea. It will be critical to the development and education of financial professionals across our industry, and should ultimately benefit the people that matter the most to us: our clients.

CPD is a particularly pressing priority at the moment due to the imminent roll out of the Retail Distribution Review. Now could not be a better time to reaffirm our belief that well-educated financial professionals will serve their clients better and more efficiently.

Invesco Perpetual has long believed in the merits of educating financial professionals. Our regular Investment Intelligence Seminars have been up and running for 15 years and, we like to believe, have kept our partners in the intermediary industry bang up-to-date on the latest market trends and developments.

For us, CPD is just another way of keeping clients at the very heart of our investment philosophy.
