The current climate of low interest rates, low inflation and uncertain investor sentiment towards credit markets has created much debate about how clients’ portfolios should be positioned.
Bryn Jones, manager of the Strategic Bond Fund, explains how maintaining consistently low volatility has been key for clients seeking risk adjusted returns. The fund is currently ranked as the second lowest volatility versus its peer group, the IA Sterling Strategic Bond Sector.
Source: Financial Express. Volatility shown is annualised standard deviation of weekly returns since the launch of the Rathbone Strategic Bond Fund, from 03.10.2011 to 26.05.2015

With traditional safe-haven assets paying skimpy (even negative) yields, many investors realize that they may have to move up the risk curve to meet their long-term needs. But the bouts of volatility that have plagued equity markets can seem too risky to take on. We believe that efforts to not lose money can be harnessed to grow capital over time.

Building a patent portfolio today which will have strategic value in the future is an innovation challenge facing all heads of R&D and IP. Generating value from intellectual property is difficult – appetites for licensing and litigation are changing, legal challenges are reshaping validity and appeals processes, and technology abandonment is happening faster than ever before.
As an innovation leader, how can you build and shape a strategic patent portfolio that will sit in tomorrow’s growing market place, positioning your company to take advantage of new and emerging opportunities – in the blue ocean?
PatSnap will be joined by Peter Cowan, IP strategist and Founder of IP strategy advisory firm Northworks IP, for a live webinar on how to use blue ocean strategy to build a strategic patent portfolio.
In this webinar, you will learn:
-What blue ocean strategy looks like in today’s world of IP and innovation
- How to analyse the intersection of technology, patents, and market direction to find innovation blue oceans

During the webinar we will cover:
How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?
Who should attend.
People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.
Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.
Why you should attend.
- Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;
- What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?
- What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
- What could you have done differently
Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).
Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.

Even the most advanced cybersecurity efforts are incomplete, as evidenced by the increasing number of major corporate data breaches that make headlines each year. Security professionals are forced to rely on SIEM platforms and other tools that, while valuable, are inherently limited and cannot be expected to deliver the complete results necessary for good security. Current efforts are barely keeping up with attackers. More tools, even better tools, are not the answer.
This webinar will discuss a new discipline for understanding the role each data source fulfills in the cybersecurity toolset, and how to take a strategic approach to extracting the most relevant, valuable insights from each data source for a more complete security posture that requires less manual effort to achieve.
