  • Modern Strategies for Investing in Global Emerging Markets
    Modern Strategies for Investing in Global Emerging Markets
    Katja Boerger | Navaneeth Satheesan , Envestnet | Ryan Ross, BrightTALK Recorded: Mar 13 2019 50 mins
    Emerging markets are in a paradox right now. They are seeing tremendous growth yet have debt denominated In a strong dollar, which threatens to halter their growth and thus ability to pay back their debts. 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

    At over 12 Trillion Dollars in GDP, China is the world’s 2nd largest economy. It is home to 8 of the top 20 tech giants, it is a leader in exports, and is second only to the US in exports.

    After years of unprecedented growth, china has begun to slow down. It is easy to point to the trade war with the US as the driver of this slowdown. But we need to look deeper.

    This webinar will provide the Institutional investors and financial advisers interested in emerging markets, with:

    An overview on China’s domestic policy in stimulating trade
    An analysis of the 3 veins of the trade war
    How to find opportunity in the market
    Filtering the signal versus the noise

  • Panel Discussion - Global Emerging Markets - Outlook for 2019
    Panel Discussion - Global Emerging Markets - Outlook for 2019
    Ryan Ross | Richard Lightbound | Magdalena Polan | Adrian Lowcock Recorded: Mar 13 2019 42 mins
    Growth in developed markets is slowing, which will effect Emerging Markets. But what are the causes of the slowdown, and how do they compare to the past? If the source is oil prices, what does this mean for oil-rich countries like Venezuela, Nigeria, or Saudi Arabia?

    If the source is Central Banking policies, either coming from the US Federal Reserve or the European Central Bank – how will relative strength or weakness in currencies affect countries that hold debt?

    When headlines abound around trade, trade deficits, and trade surpluses, how can investors hedge their bets?

    And as economies emerge alongside technology, labor costs become as much an economic issue as a political issue. What role does automation play in the growth story?


    This panel will discuss questions facing emerging markets including:

    · Are EMs better equipped to handle growth slowdown than in 2015? What do they have going for them now that they didn’t back then?
    · Are we in an EM rally? If so, how long will the EM rally last?
    · Central Banking policies effect on EM
    · Areas to avoid vs. attractive areas?


    Panelists include:

    Magdalena Polan - Global EM Economist at LGIM
    Adrian Lowcock - Head of Personal Investing at Willis Owen
    Richard Lightbound, CEO EMEA & Asia at ROBO Global

    Emerging Markets will be the recipients of the most asset flows of any asset class by Institutional Investors, according to JPMorgan Asset Management.

Africa is heavily invested in by China, and Africa’s collective GDP is expanding faster than the world’s average, and it is forecast to accelerate over the next five years to become the world’s second-fastest-growing region once again.

    This webinar will cover:
    - What will be the impacts of a strong US dollar on markets?
    - How will trade agreements, and disagreements, will shape markets in the next 6 months?
    - What industries will see the most and least activity from investors?
    - Which emerging markets funds are seeing inflows and outflows, and why?

    Smart Beta: Growth, Development, and Sustainability of an Asset Class.
    Justin Simler | Christopher Peel | Nicolas Rabener | Jean-Maurice Ladure Recorded: Feb 13 2019 61 mins
    The adoption rates of smart beta among asset owners rose from 26% in 2015 to 48% in 2018 according to the FTSE Russell survey on smart beta. The growth in assets has been similarly impressive and according to Morningstar smart beta assets under management grew from USD 280bn at the end of 2012 to USD 999bn at the end of 2017. One of the key secondary effects of this significant growth is to put continued pressure on the margins of actively managed products.

    The main purpose of the panel discussion will be to understand the reasons behind this runaway growth, how smart beta is developing and whether this growth is sustainable. The panelists will present their views on issues such as:
    - whether smart beta is the same as factor investing
    - how they decompose this broad universe
    - the role of smart beta in new areas such as bond investing and even hedge fund or
    - private equity investing
    - how ESG can be applied to smart beta investing
    - the ability to market time between ‘factors’
