Forward Features 2020

 

We are pleased to provide the complete list of planned editorial features for 2020. The list also contains the writer’s name for each feature.

If you wish to register an interest for a particular article, please email the writer directly. The ‘Copy Deadline’ is for the journalist but also gives you some indication of when the writer will be working on the article – typically about 4 weeks in advance of the deadline and this would usually be the best time to make contact.

We are happy to hear who you think might be relevant for an article. Although we will always try to acknowledge the email, we may not always be able to give further details about the feature, particularly at busy times, but you are welcome to ask.

Please note that articles described as ‘Country reports’ refer to the business environment for funds in that country, and not to the investment opportunities in that country’s capital markets. Articles described as ‘Distribution’ will generally look at either regulation, fund flows, technology or individuals (i.e interviews) related to fund distribution.

The list is subject to change.
