    The webinar will also look ahead to the looming prospect of far-reaching regulation of sustainable investment and ESG in 2019, drawing conclusions on whether this will help or hinder investors.

  • A new perspective on global investing
    A new perspective on global investing
    Edward Park, Steve Smith Recorded: Sep 28 2018 31 mins
    Rather than de-globalising, we believe the world has entered a new era defined by intangible flows of data and information, based on powerful new digital infrastructure. This is not purely driven by large, western multinational companies, but also allowing small and medium-sized enterprises from emerging markets which are ‘born global’ and to become micro multinationals from day one. Join us as Steve discusses some of the major implications of this convergence between globalisation and digitisation, and how this is creating truly global markets and changing the economics of doing business. He will go on to explain how companies with innovative business models and disruptive technologies are altering the landscape and how they are well suited to adapt and survive in the current environment of escalating trade tensions.
  • How financial markets are grossly underestimating recessionary risk
    How financial markets are grossly underestimating recessionary risk
    Edward Park, Mike Riddell Recorded: Aug 17 2018 38 mins
    Mike Riddell will talk about the macroeconomic risks to global financial markets, and some of the signals that suggest the next recession may be sooner than many people think. The talk will touch on the risks posed by global trade wars, tighter monetary policy, commodity prices and China.

    Key points:

    • Volatility over the last 10 years has been suppressed by central banks, but if history is any guide, recent monetary policy tightening is a lead indicator of greater asset price volatility and higher risk premia.
    • Tighter monetary policy contributes to slower real money supply growth, which is also a lead indictor for global economic activity.
    • Higher commodity prices are a sign of strong current growth, but they also imply weaker future growth.
  • The Value Cycle and the Opportunities we see today
    The Value Cycle and the Opportunities we see today
    Edward Park, Hugh Sergeant Recorded: Jul 20 2018 14 mins
    Since the Global Financial Crisis a decade ago, markets have witnessed Growth outperforming Value over an unprecedented period. In this webinar Hugh Sergeant, Chief Investment Officer and manager of the Recovery Strategies at River and Mercantile Asset Management, explains why we now find ourselves in one of the most exciting points of his 30 year investment career. Describing value investing and the value cycle, Hugh will demonstrate how the dispersion between Value and Growth investment styles has now reached such a point that it has created a myriad of opportunities spanning stocks, sectors and geography.
