It had been some considerable time since we had an opportunity to gather investors together but on the 17th November we welcomed 50 clients to the Parkside Room at The George Hotel in Christchurch. A great venue and a beautiful day to hear from two excellent speakers, Greg Fleming from Salt Funds Management and Mark Peterson, the CEO of NZX.
After introductions Greg was up first to discuss Carbon trading. As New Zealand strives towards its goals to reduce CO2 emissions, a Carbon trading market has developed and investors can participate in the growth of the market, and the potential rise in Carbon credit pricing via the Carbon fund managed by Salt Funds Management.
Following Greg’s talk, a break for refreshments led to the second session with Mark Peterson of NZX. This is a stock held by a number of investors and clients asked a considerable number of questions of Mark and the prospects for the shares going forward. As well as providing the New Zealand stock exchange, NZX also own Smartshares and Superlife, both of whom have grown their assets under management substantially over the years.
Feedback on the day and in subsequent conversations has been good and if you are interested in either the Carbon fund or NZX, please contact your adviser. And if you would like to see other companies at future events, do let us know!
