This month’s issue was a joy to compile. Autumn is a time for new beginnings, children are back at school after a busy summer break and we head towards the last quarter of the year with a countdown to Christmas. so much has happened in the last few months at HQ that we have prepared a bumper issue with plenty of news on the economy, business, travel, culture and the arts.
Pietro Poletto, head of Fixed income at the London stock Exchange Group, discusses Retail Bonds and whether they are an alternative to shares. 2014 has seen increasing inflows of capital into equities and a surge in iPO activity with over 100 iPOs on our markets raising more than £15 billion to date. Read his thoughts on page 7. I am delighted that Professor Domenico Lombardi an expert in international monetary relations, the global economy, and the G-20 and G-8 summit shares his article on sovereign debt markets with us. Ever since the outbreakout of the euro zone crisis, sovereign debt has become a hotly debated topic with an uncertain future.
Rebecca Cowing showcases London’s top events on pages 30 and 31. Last but not least, our cover picture is dedicated to Zenaida Yanowsky, the Royal Ballet’s Principal Dancer. Working with such a committed and inspiring team was a joy and we share an article on pages 28 and 29 which explains how The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera house provide such exquisite and demanding performances.
