  • ESG Investing: Drivers of the Shift Towards Sustainable Financial Markets
    ESG Investing: Drivers of the Shift Towards Sustainable Financial Markets
    Franita Neuville, CFA, Investment & Advisory Market Development Manager, Refinitiv Recorded: Jun 6 2019 61 mins
    The investment research market has not changed much over the last 40 years but there is a notable shift underway. One of the factors which will be reshaping the investment research landscape over the next 5 to 10 years, is the increased adoption of the use of alternative data in the investment decision making process which is being enabled by the information explosion currently underway globally.

    Environmental, Social and Governance data is probably one of the best-known and widely-used alternative datasets globally and investors are integrating it into their investment decision making process so that they can become better investors to achieve stronger, long-term returns.

    Investors are using active ownership to persuade companies to clean-up their act. Globally we are seeing a shift to Responsible and Sustainable Investment (RI/SI) models and investors are focusing more on their stakeholder responsibility by being engaged owners, or even activist owners in some cases. Sustainable development goals are becoming an integrated part of asset managers’ and owners’ strategies and communications as they place more importance on their societal responsibility of investing responsibly and sustainably.

    In this presentation, we will be showing how drivers such as client demand, regulation, the transfer of wealth and climate change are driving the shift towards sustainable financial and economic markets. We will also look at how ESG investing is being incorporated by asset managers and owners, from using it as an input in the investment decision making process, to incorporating it as a key part of a company’s strategy.

    ESG is no longer just a conversational topic being driven by activist groups, it is now also seriously being incorporated by global money management firms and is set to become a key part of the global investment industry.

  • Outcomes-Based Investing: Revisiting Multi-Asset Funds
    Outcomes-Based Investing: Revisiting Multi-Asset Funds
    Justin Simler | Clive Emery, Invesco | Andrew Warwick, Newton IM | Matthias Scheiber, Wells Fargo Recorded: May 8 2019 49 mins
    Multi-Asset is differentiated from single asset classes in that it defines outcomes in terms of risk and return. It has been one of the fastest growing investment areas as ‘old balanced’ metamorphosed into the diversified growth fund. DGF became a brand which included strategies which ranged from absolute return to more dynamic long only approaches. Today mainstream multi-asset also includes approaches such as risk parity and risk premia.

    Individual multi-asset strategies tend to provide different combinations of these approaches and this is true of the managers in today’s panel. We aim to understand the attraction of multi-asset to investors and the sources of future growth as traditional investors such as defined benefit schemes continue to de-risk.

    Some of the areas we shall address include:
    - how multi-asset coped with a difficult 2018
    - whether risk controls were effective and how clients can measure their success
    - whether multi-asset income will continue to grow given bond yields are still low and the need for income remains high
