[VIDEO] Why you need to ACT for kids now: our interview with Dr Neil Carrington


In September this year, Future Generation Investment Fund (FGX) was launched, which is a no-fee listed investment company that donates a percentage of its net asset value each year to charity, with a focus on children at risk. Rivkin spread the word about this charitable investment vehicle to its clients and quickly began gathering applications from investors keen to access great value and help children at the same time. CMC Markets Stockbroking, Rivkin’s broking partner, kindly and generously agreed to forward all stamping fees associated with the placement directly to Rivkin, of which 100% have been donated to charities associated with children at risk.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr Neil Carrington, CEO of Act for Kids, in our Sydney office today. Neil and his team at Act for Kids work to save children from a life of abuse and neglect. The stories of abuse that flow from this organisation are hard to listen to, but equally they are important to hear and be aware of. Neil tells one story in this interview that, while horrific enough, he scores as about a 2 out of 10 on the scale of severity with regard to what Act for Kids encounters on a daily basis.

One of the top merits of this charity, is that Neil runs the organisation as commercially as possible. He can’t stand spending money on marketing and that is why it is so important that organisations like ours get involved and spread the word among our audience, which is why we ask you to view this short video and get involved by visiting the links below and making a donation.

We strongly suggest that you consult an independent, licenced financial advisor before acting upon any information contained on this website. Investing in and trading securities (such as shares listed on the ASX) and/or derivatives (such as Contracts for Difference or 'CFDs') carry financial risks. CFDs carry with them various additional risks that differ from more simple securities such as fully-paid company shares. Some of these risks include not owning the underlying instrument from which a price is being derived, settling trades 'over the counter' with a financial institution rather than on a stock exchange, and using leverage to gain access to trades that may have a higher face value than your initial deposit. This risk of leverage means that it is possible to lose more than your initial investment. Our aim is to create more life choices for our clients, which means improving the wealth of clients throughout many market cycles by nurturing a relationship spanning many years. If you are not comfortable with your understanding of the risks involved before using a Rivkin product and service, please contact our office to seek further information or a Product Disclosure Statement, or make an appointment to sit with one of our friendly financial experts.
