TechMarketView breakfast webinars coming soon!

Earlier this year, we took the decision to postpone our flagship annual event - ‘An Evening with TechMarketView’- which was previously scheduled for September 2021, for a further year amid ongoing uncertainty about the feasibility of running largescale events during the pandemic.

We are delighted, however, to now be able to bring you the same expert content in a series of free breakfast webinars this autumn. In fact, you’ll be able to hear directly from even more of TechMarketView’s analyst team with four sessions planned, focused on:

·      Delivering Social Value – Implications for Public Sector Technology Suppliers

·      Hackers & Defenders – How greater use of public cloud is changing the cyber security landscape

·      Clarity of Purpose – How the pandemic helped financial services to focus on what really matters

·      Making Green from Green – Is there revenue from the sustainability agenda?

Look out for details of how to sign up to attend the webinars, which will run weekly from 23 September, in the summer.

Sponsorship packages available

Share performance in April 21

SharesApril was the month when Big Tech announced its Q1 results. As you will see, it really was a ‘Bumper Quarter’ which saw the NASDAQ surge by 5.6% (up 8.8% YTD).

The FTSE100 couldn’t quite keep up the pace this month. But a rise of 3.8% (+7.9% YTD) was pretty respectable in anyone’s books.

The FTSE Telecomm Index rose by 4.3% (an even higher +15.2% YTD). Mainly on the back of BT which rose 6.5% (+24.7% YTD).

The FTSE SCS Index – which monitors the UK quoted software & IT services stocks that we follow – was up an impressive 6.5% (+11.2% YTD)

Big Tech has had a ‘Blow out quarter’.


HVPActually I am more optimistic than I have been in years. The UK (and US) vaccine rollout is going great guns pointing to these economies opening up pretty soon. Indeed everyone I talk to reports staff shortages. If that boosts wages – particularly at the lower end – that will be ‘good’. But maybe that will lead to inflation which would make many tech stocks less attractive.

But, for now, let’s just enjoy a moment of optimism.
