The 1986-7 Unit Trust Investor of the Year
It all looked so easy earlier in the year as stock markets round the world reached new all-time highs. But then, suddenly, the going became much tougher with the result in doubt right up to the last minute.
The winner receives a cut-glass piggy bank specially made for the event and inscribed by Wedgwood Glass. It is presented by Clive Fenn-Smith , Chairman of the Unit Trust
Association, at an investment conference in the City.
