    Heptagon Future Trends Equity Fund: A pan-thematic approach to investing
    Alexander Gunz, Portfolio Manager, Heptagon Capital Recorded: Dec 13 2018 39 mins
    The Heptagon Future Trends Fund provides investors with access to a high-conviction, concentrated portfolio of global equities that are exposed to a diverse set of themes, all of which look set to grow in importance.

    The team at Heptagon Capital has been writing proprietary thematic commentaries on topics as varied as robotics and molecular diagnostics for the last seven years.

    Heptagon subsequently launched a UCITS fund centred on its best-of-breed ideas derived from this research at the start of 2016. The Fund focuses on a wide number of themes (currently 12), but invests exclusively in businesses that offer pure-play exposure to the trends in question (defined as at least 75% revenue being theme-derived).

    All of the businesses in which the Fund invests are market leaders in their respective fields, spending above-average levels of research and development in order to sustain their dominant position.

    Leading plays on cybersecurity, alternative energy, and robotic-assisted surgery have been the biggest contributors to returns over the past year, highlighting the diversity of the Fund.

  • 2019 predictions - Global Macro and Markets Movements to Watch
    2019 predictions - Global Macro and Markets Movements to Watch
    Justin Simler, Chris Watling, Lothar Mentel, Lars Kreckel Recorded: Dec 11 2018 60 mins
    This has been a highly extended global economic cycle led by the US. Its longevity has been due to a number of factors including unorthodox monetary policy, fiscal stimulus and an absence of the exuberance that typically precedes a market reversal. The panellists will debate which factors are likely to drive markets over the next 12 months. They will cover key issues such as:

    * The underlying strength of the US economy and the timing, and potential causes, of recession

    * Evidence of inflationary pressure and the consequent impact on economies and markets of any reduction in liquidity

    * Whether the downtrend in labour’s share of income is likely to reverse

    * The outlook for the US dollar and the emerging markets

    The panellists will discuss what the market currently discounts and how their views differ from this consensus. They will give their views on the asset allocation and style, region and sector exposures that are likely to offer the best (and worst) combination of risk and reward in this environment. They will finish by suggesting their own possible surprises for 2019. These are outcomes which the market believes have no better than a one in four chance but which the panellists believe have a probability of 50% or more.

They have more ways than ever to trade, yet are suffering from trade wards. Their economies are not yet developed, but some are on the brink of adopting more technologically advanced currencies than the developed countries.

    What are good strategies to take advantage of this situation?

    This panel will join leading emerging market participants to discuss:

    - Which emerging markets will benefit from the potential political & economic outcomes of the next 18 months
    - How to think about where opportunities lie in chaos.
    - which securities are seeing the most flows and why?
    - Which industries will be most affected by trade wars, a strong US dollar, and elections around the world
