After lunch you will have an opportunity to hear more about the Alliance Trust portfolio. David Shapiro, Co-portfolio Manager at Willis Towers Watson, will introduce two of the equity managers and explain why they were selected. You will then hear directly from the managers who will discuss their stocks and how they invest.


Bill Kanko, Founder and President, Black Creek Investment Management 

Black Creek’s approach is to look five to ten years ahead and find stocks ‘across the cap spectrum’. Its approach is long term and contrarian.


Andy Headley, Head of Global Strategies, Veritas Asset Management 

Veritas Asset Management uses a proprietary Real Return investment process with an absolute return mindset, deploying a number of methods, including themes, to help identify industries and companies that are positioned to benefit from medium-term growth, globally.

We look forward to welcoming shareholders at this year’s AGM.



We will be organising a bus transfer to and from the AGM and Dundee train station. The bus will leave from the train station by 10.25am, stopping at Dundee bus station on route, in order to allow time for registration prior to the AGM starting at 11.00am. Therefore, we will meet trains leaving Glasgow at 8.41am; Edinburgh at 9.00am and Aberdeen at 9.07am. There will be a bus returning, via the bus station, to Dundee train station after lunch, at around 1.00pm and after the presentation by the investment managers at around 2.30pm.
