Equilibrium Asset Management will hold its inaugural wealth conference this month – with a host of headline speakers including infamous rogue trader Nick Leeson set to take to the stage.

The invitation only event entitled Equinox Live takes place at Alderley Park in Cheshire and will also feature global market strategist Michael J. Bell, behavioural economist Greg B. Davies, fund manager Gervais Williams and consumer fraud expert Alexis Conran.

Equilibrium founder Colin Lawson said the conference has been tailored for individuals or family members who are responsible for managing their wealth while also providing a unique opportunity for those eager to learn more about making the most of their assets.

Colin, whose Wilmslow-based company currently manages over £750 million of assets for over 1,000 families said: “Equilibrium is delighted to host its first ever wealth conference. This event has been an idea of mine for many years, and one that I am excited to finally bring to life.

“For this inaugural event we have lined up an amazing panel of speakers guaranteed to inform, educate and entertain.

“Our keynote speaker is Nick Leeson, the infamous rogue trader who single-handedly brought down England’s oldest bank, Barings, in 1995. We will also hear from experts in a variety of fields including behavioural economics, fund management and tax planning.

“As with our Equinox magazine, the aim for this event is to present a wide variety of content that will invariably interest anybody aiming to maximise their assets while minimising risk, cost and tax.”

The Equinox Live wealth conference will start at 9.15am on Wednesday, May 16 and finish at 4.30pm.

The conference comes after Equilibrium recently landed £80m of net asset wins in six months – surpassing its half year target by £30m.

Equilibrium, which now employs 72 staff and turned over more than £7 million at the end of its last fiscal year in 2017, was also named in the top 10 best small companies to work for in the UK by The Sunday Times for the second consecutive year.

The company specialises in all areas of wealth management, investment, pensions, tax planning and estate planning and works with high-net-worth individuals, couples and families.

Colin added: “Since the company was founded almost 23 years ago there has always been a vision for sustained growth.

“The creation and hosting Equinox Live fits with our general ethos which is to constantly evolve and adapt whilst allowing us to deliver the best and most efficient service to our clients.
