But TrakM8 (TRAK), which provides telematic solutions to the transport and insurance industries, followed up its AGM in the car park of Coventry’s Ricoh Arena with a technology roadshow in a bid to convince investors and customers that it is a high-tech company with a future, and not just a chequered past.

TR Property Investment Trust (TRY) AGM 2017

Yesterday I attended the Annual General Meeting of TR Property Investment Trust (TRY). I have held shares in this company for a long time, and it’s always useful to attend their AGM as you get a useful update on trends in the property market from the fund manager (Marcus Phayre-Mudge of late). As he mentioned, the fact that they hold property directly, as well as holding shares in property companies gives them a unique insight into the state of the market. Apart ...
