For 13 years, the Master Investor conference has brought together some of the world’s smartest investors, hundreds of interesting companies, and thousands of private investors who are earger to learn and to explore new investment ideas as well as network among each other.
From speculative oil explorers to junior miners, exciting technology firms to British manufacturers, the exhibition showcases a multitude of investment ideas and opportunities under one roof. Held in the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, this year’s show will be held on Saturday 25th April from 9am to 5pm.
The main speakers this year will include:
– Jim Mellon, a true “Master Investor”. Jim made his fortune in the emerging markets of the 80s/90s as a fund manager, before branching out into areas as diverse as mining, property and most recently the biotech arena. According to the Sunday Times Rich List, Jim has an estimated fortune of £850 million and is the 117th wealthiest person in the UK. Previous show attendees will know that Jim is a passionate, entertaining and intelligent speaker, always performing to a capacity crowd. He is also increasingly known as a successful book author, and most recently released “Fast Forward”, a book about profiting from trends in technology.
– In a major coup for Master Investor this year the Main Stage hosts man of the moment, UKIP leader Nigel Farage. A former metals trader in the City of London, The Times’ Briton of the Year in 2014 and a highly controversial figure in UK politics, Nigel is sure to give a thought provoking speech, just days before the UK general election. Not to be missed!
– Other Main Stage speakers include Merryn Somerset-Webb editor of Moneyweek, James Ferguson, who has over 25 years’ experience as a stockbroker, sector analyst and macro-economic strategist, with one other big name speaker to be announced.
The heart of Master Investor is the exhibition floor. Here, investors have the opportunity to meet with top company executives, find trading ideas and discuss investment opportunities. What makes Master Investor stand out from other shows is that it provides direct access to the men & women in charge of running their public companies. Represented at CEO and Finance Director level, attendees can gain unique insights into both current and potential new investments. There will be close to 100 exhibiting companies at this year’s show, including many new ones that never before exhibited.

Investors are also able to take a break, chat to other attendees and relax with a coffee in the special Networking Zone. The restaurants, bars and other delights of Islington are also available just a short walk away.
If there wasn’t enough to see at the show already Master Investor also showcases a variety of other investment speakers across breakout rooms and our “Rising Stars” stage.
An ever present and ever popular speaker at Master Investor is Simon Cawkwell, the UK’s best known short-seller, perhaps even better known by his pen name “Evil Knievil.” In a private session Simon will be giving some of his best short selling ideas at the show, along with a few long options thrown in for good measure. Traditionally known for retiring to his dedicated sofa, attendees have the opportunity to meet Simon after his speech.
