  • 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: Dec 28 2018 51 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

    Trade and industry developments such as TPP and the Asia Region Funds Passport promise to galvanise investment across all of APAC. In South America, a commonly over-looked area, reforms in currency, pension, education and trade present investment opportunities as well. 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?
  • [Panel] How to Integrate ESG as part of a successful asset mix
    [Panel] How to Integrate ESG as part of a successful asset mix
    Richard Lightbound, Meryam Omi, Justin Simler, Adrie Heinsbroek Recorded: Dec 27 2018 63 mins
    A few years ago "ESG” was just a page at the back of a presentation. Today it has achieved greater prominence with new initiatives such as impact investing and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. However, questions still remain about what ESG integration really means and whether the increasing use of frameworks and questionnaires is distracting from engagement.

    This expert panel will look at what ESG integration means and at the practical implementation of ESG considerations within portfolios. They will discuss whether ESG can be implemented, at best, without negatively impacting returns or whether there is recent evidence that it can actually benefit both risk and return.

    While impact investing dominates the headlines, most of the assets that firms manage on behalf of their clients integrate an assessment of ESG factors into their process but do not tilt towards sustainable investments. The panel will discuss this issue and the likely future trends in ESG investment including how ESG fits in with the Mega trends defined by the PRI or WEF.

  • Managing Risks when Investing in Turbulent Times
    Managing Risks when Investing in Turbulent Times
    John Redwood, Chief Global Strategist, Charles Stanley Recorded: Dec 19 2018 46 mins
    People with savings want to earn a decent return without running too much risk. Some have saved out of their earnings, some have built up capital in a business which they sell, some have inherited some money. None of them want to throw it away. In an era of ultra-low interest rates just putting it in a bank means the value of your capital goes down each year, as prices are rising faster than the return on a deposit. That’s why many conclude they do need to take some more risk, to own some shares and bonds that offer a higher income but can also go down in value.

    Investment managers need to maximise return for a given level of risk, and need to construct portfolios so not everything goes down at the same time if things do go wrong. This talk will examine how you spread your risks, and argues that over the longer term buying a portfolio of shares usually delivers a return above inflation, with a rising income from increasing dividends. Managers also are able to choose from a range of different countries with different currencies for their shares, and to look at the opportunities in commercial property as well. That can help find the right mix of return and risks.

    Alternative Strategies: How Wealth Managers Are Using Smart Beta
    Justin Simler | Christopher Peel | Nicholas Rabener Feb 13 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 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 $280 Billion at the end of 2012 to USD $999 Billion 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.

    Panelists will present their views on:
    - Whether smart beta is the same as factor investing
    - How to decompose this broad universe

    Mindfulness Mapped: A Leader’s Guide to the Present Moment
    George Kinder, Kinder Institute of Life Planning Mar 4 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Step boldly into your greatness by accessing the present moment. Thought leader, mindfulness practitioner, and finance guru George Kinder unveils his life’s work with a Map of Mindfulness. He uses the map to explain new forms of leadership, economics, and democracy all rooted in the present moment.

    This radical 60-minute talk offers insight into how you can personally apply his methods to access your inner leader and enhance your performance in every aspect of life: at work, with your family, and in your relationships. Kinder explores how strong leadership skills come from being present. Always residing in the present moment means you are ready for anything from inspired action to empathic wisdom.

    His leadership system democratizes entrepreneurial spirit, maximizing both innovation and growth across society as it maximizes the efficient allocation of human capital. He shifts the frame of economic thinking by grounding all of space and time in the present moment and argues that moments of freedom rather than moments of transaction become our focus. He proposes self-knowledge as a more sustainable motivator than self-interest.

    In just one hour, you will understand the present, how to access it, and how it enhances your leadership potential. You’ll discover how to live in the moment and inspire others. You’ll gain a new way of visioning what is possible for the organizations and communities you represent and the tools to take steps to enact change now.

    Kinder’s work aims to impact civilization. He’s recently launched a grassroots movement of community conversations happening globally that asks attendees to vision a Golden Civilization and then work to establish it now. His latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness, is available for pre-order on Amazon now and can be purchased March 4, 2019. To celebrate the book’s launch, we offer attendees of the live BrightTALK on March 4 a special one-day price of $1.29 for the Kindle version.
