We discussed which commodities are likely to perform best during this difficult time for the sector and how to exploit this when picking shares. We disclosed our top picks in oil and gas and mining, as well as assess the fundamental supply and demand factors behind various commodities.

Join us for a discussion of how best to play the property recovery. We'll take a look at how unprecedented government intervention in the housing market is reshaping the world of buy-to-let, and we'll also ask whether it makes sense to buy high-street shops - a staple investment of the boom years now going cheap - even as the internet reduces retailers' space requirements.

Investment Trust Seminars 2013
Investment trusts are a useful, often low-cost way of gaining exposure to different areas of the market. The introduction of the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) in 2013 is expected to increase demand for these popular vehicles, benefiting holders of investment trusts, encouraging product launches and bringing greater competition to the market. Our series of four seminars will include insight from our acclaimed journalists and comment from industry experts on the key areas and considerations when investing in investment trusts.
In our first seminar, we took a look at the difference between the approaches of the big global trusts, plus a look at different global investing strategies, for example large companies vs. smaller companies. For more information and to view our speaker videos and presentations, click here.
