More than 100 people from Class 3 of the investment management course run by Ultra Wealth Group recently took part in an exclusive business trip to London to observe the diverse aspects of investment in the British capital.

“This is the third time we have organised an integrated overseas trip for Ultra course participants, the first two having been to China and Japan. The main reason for selecting the UK is the post-Brexit situation, where withdrawal from the EU has caused a currency deprecation crisis. As there are opportunities in all crises, we felt it was appropriate to bring class 3 here to learn about the cumulative prospects of investment that could happen in the near future while observing the business flow and attending educational lectures as well as meeting with Thailand’s ambassador to the UK,” explained Ultra Wealth Group president Chatchaval Jiaravanon.

Chatchaval joined with other executives Piyaman Tejapaibul, Suporn Wattanavekin and Dr Supachai Sukhanind along with Ultra participants Charn Srivikorn, Niti Osathanugrah, Sittharmanin Susamawathanakun, Dr Puttipong Poomsuwan, Na-Chanok Ratanadaros, Jiramote Phahusutr, Tharaphut Kuhapremkit, Yaovanee Nirandara, Songphon Chaovanayothin, Rolf Von Bueren, Sarit Chokchainirand, Narun Thamavaranukup, Saran Wanglee, Nattapong Jirurawong, Amornpimol Viravan, and Sompong Chonecadeedumrongkul.

Their first stop in London was Cult Wine where Dr Paul Inthaseni, president of Century R Co, spoke about investing in wine. 

“Usually, wine connoisseurs would purchase to drink and collect. The finest wines are mostly found and produced in France because of the high quality core ingredient is the pedigree of grape varieties. The wines are only available seasonally in a limited quantity depending on the weather, hence the rise in wine investment. Over the past 5 years, the wine industry has grown considerably.”

The day ended with a sightseeing cruise, allowing participants to experience London from Big Ben to Tower Bridge and on to the city’s developing new CBD.

The Treasure Hunt took place on day two and participants were encouraged to create a harmonious bond while searching for clues in the historic locations of Oxford, the town where UK’s first university was established. On the last day, property management firm JLL Jones Lang Lasalle introduced the participants to the UK’s real estate investment properties. This was followed by a briefing from First-minute Capital on what is termed “Next Generation Technology Investment”. In the afternoon, the group attended an extensive knowledge session with Swiss private bank Lombard Odier. 

That evening Thai ambassador Pisanu Suvanajata cordially shared his insights on London’s current status and the use of economy innovations in investment.
