201505 CISI annual fund raising dinner 2015
On 21st May 2015, the Chartered Institute for
Securities and Investment (CISI), Liverpool & North Wales region,
hosted their annual charity dinner at the Crowne Plaza in
Liverpool. Dirk Strontschak, Fund Manager at SL Investment and
President of CISI Liverpool & North Wales, opened the event.
160 regional members and guests attended, as well as members
from other regional societies representing the Insurance, Law,
Accounting and Taxation service sectors.
James Charlton, Fund Manager at BestInvest
Tilney's Liverpool office, provided an overview of one of
CISI's current regional initiatives; engaging local schools in
educational programmes focused on promoting investment learning;
helping to attract young local talent to the growing financial
industry in the area.
CISI welcomed representatives from
Archbishop Beck and Merchant Taylors schools - two of the local
academic centres actively involved in the educational
programme - hosting three students who had recently excelled by
achieving CISI Diplomas, with flying colours.
Further, the institute were thrilled to be joined
by Dennis Taylor, former snooker world Champion, as guest speaker.
Dennis helped to add some sparkle and pizzazz to proceedings,
culminating in the auctioning of a signed Everton football shirt
for £250, and raising a total of £1,762 for the Community
Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside. Dennis is pictured here with Dirk

Karen Morris attended on behalf of the charity, providing a
valuable perspective on the important work they do in driving
forward positive social change within local communities.
Dirk Strontschak commented, "My thanks go out to all those who
supported this fabulous evening, helping us to raise awareness and
funds for an important charity."
"The positive engagement of local schools in CISI's educational
initiative has been incredibly encouraging, and bodes well for the
future of financial services in the region. Congratulations to
those students recently achieving their diplomas, and best of luck
to those currently studying."
"The evening was a truly fabulous event, made possible by the
generous support of Aberdeen Asset Management, BNY Mellon,
Fidelity, Legal & General and Natexis - and of course the wit
and special humour of the legend Dennis Taylor!"
