The clock is steadily running down towards a prestigious event offering valuable insights from personal finance and communications technology experts.

But for anyone wanting to know more about these two subject areas and how they are impacted by the Covid-19 crisis there is still time to sign up.

The Press and Journal Business Breakfast in association with McKnight Associates, principal partner practice of St James’s Place Wealth Management,
takes place tomorrow (Wednesday September 23). BT is associate sponsor for the online event.

Investments can be a baffling topic at the best of times but in the middle of a global pandemic it is even more confusing. People are bombarded with advice and it can be difficult to distil it all down.

Luckily, Wednesday’s event features an expert at turning very technical market information into “something interesting and relatable to investors”.

At least that’s how Darren Johnson, head of engagement, investment consultancy, St James’s Place Wealth Management, describes his Cirencester-based day job.

Weekends would normally see him cheering on Cheltenham Town Ladies Football Club, where he is currently vice-chairman.

Before Covid-19 he and his family would travel around England watching the Robinesses in the FA National Women’s League.

Mr Johnson joined the financial services industry in 2001 and St James’s Place in 2007.

He has responsibility for all face-to-face contact between the firm’s investment division, partners and clients.

Tomorrow’s event also features Steve McKnight, principal of Aberdeen-based McKnight Associates Wealth Management and, together, the two personal finance specialists will discuss current market risks and the importance of taking a long-term
view.

The steps being taken by the overall business to improve the financial wellbeing of clients will be outlined.

In addition, the pair will discuss the growing trend for sustainable
and responsible investing.

The third speaker is Alan Lees, Scotland director for BT Enterprise, with responsibility for all corporate and public sector business of telecoms giant BT north of the border.  Mr Lees is also chairman of the BT Scotland board.
