Welcome to the November edition of Investor Review, which continues to feature a remarkable
variety of insightful and must-read sections, including financial planning, alternative investments
and exchange traded funds.

In recent comment, the introduction of compulsory flexible working hours would open the floodgates to more women working in the UK financial services industry, according to Sturgeon Ventures, the leading regulatory ‘incubator’ or ‘umbrella’ firm that submitted its four pledges to HM
Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter in the release by the Government.

In this edition, we also learn that adding leverage to an alternative investment fund does not
necessarily increase the risk, according to a new study by the Alternative Investment Management
Association (AIMA) and the CAIA Association.

In other noteworthy news, WisdomTree, the exchange-traded fund (ETF) and exchange tradedproduct sponsor on 8th November announced the listing of a GBP hedged accumulating share class for the WisdomTree US Equity Income UCITS ETF on the London Stock Exchange. This new share class combines the benefits of WisdomTree’s unique dividend weighting methodology applied to high yielding US equities and the management of currency risk through a monthly currency hedge.

I hope you enjoy reading this month’s edition, which yet again incorporates a diverse range of
global news and insightful comment from across the institutional investment industry.
