  • Sector Rotation – Time to take a closer look?
    Sector Rotation – Time to take a closer look? Pierre Debru, Quantitative Strategist Recorded: Apr 27 2017 43 mins
    Sector exposures are fundamental drivers of risk and return, with high dispersion between sector returns. The diversification demonstrated by MSCI World sectors is pervasive across regions; a remarkable feature, as it could have been significantly reduced by the large number of stock members in each sector.

    Flows into sector ETFs have increased significantly over the last year, showing the ever-changing investor mindset as they move from traditional country allocation to factor, sector and regional plays. Healthcare and financials captured the lion’s share in 2016.

    Deutsche Asset Management’s db X-trackers ETF platform offers a number of sector exposures across several different regions: global, European, EM and China.

    Deutsche Asset Management’s passive business has recently published a paper on Sector Rotation. This webcast will be hosted by Pierre Debru. He is a Director within Deutsche Asset Management, developing Investment Strategies and Model Portfolios within Passive Asset Management. He has 12 years of experience in Quantitative Research, Fund Structuring and Portfolio Construction. Previously, Mr. Debru was structuring and managing Structured Funds on all asset classes (UCITS or otherwise) at Nomura Alternative Investment Management. Prior to moving to Nomura, Mr. Debru was a Quantitative Analyst within BNP Paribas Investment Partners, Lehman Brothers Asset Management and Aviva Investors.
  • Delivering Quality and Yield in Fixed Income
    Delivering Quality and Yield in Fixed Income Olivier Souliac, Director - Strategic Beta product development, Passive Asset Management Recorded: Jun 15 2016 48 mins
    The quest for yield comes at the price of more volatility, more downgrade risks and potentially more liquidity risks. Each of these events can translate into yield destruction that durably affects the performance of a bond portfolio, especially for constrained investors. Looking for quality, however, is expected to render those risks more remote at the price of lower yields, whereby such lower yields may not always materialise into lower performance. In his presentation, Olivier will cover the benefits of fixed income indices:

    • Identifying advantages and drawbacks of bond indices versus single securities, and assessing the impact of index rules on yield capture
    • Examining alternative indexing approaches that enhance such yield capture while retaining the advantages of broad benchmark indices
    • Reviewing the case of yield seeking and quality oriented bond investors in the emerging markets sovereigns and IG corporate bond indices


    After completing his Masters in Engineering Science at the Ecole Centrale in Paris and Financial Mathematics at the Technische Universität Berlin, Olivier Souliac worked for Deutsche Bank in London and Frankfurt in the structured funds and index funds division. The particular emphasis in this role was on the development and distribution of systematically managed funds, with a focus on fixed income solutions for institutional clients. Olivier Souliac became an active member of the Deutsche Bank Asset & Wealth Management division at the end of 2012, working in this same area of responsibility. In October 2014, Olivier joined the Strategic Beta team within Passive Asset Management and focuses on fixed income strategies.
