    • Back in 2013 we said that financial markets would face a long and at sometimes challenging road to normalisation. That has certainly proved to be the case as none of the major central banks have raised interest rates and the likes of Europe and Japan have had to follow the US by implementing their own QE programmes. Nonetheless, one of the most important themes in markets so far this year has been the rise in bond yields from very low levels as markets begin to think about the first US interest rate rise or what is sometimes called ‘lift off’ day.

      Join our CIO for EMEA Mark Burgess, Global Head of Fixed Income Jim Cielinski and Global CIO Colin Moore as they discuss topics including:

      - What are the likely impacts of higher bond yields on equity markets?
      - At what point are core government bonds likely to become attractive again?
      - What are the prospects for financial markets over the remainder of this year and into 2016?

    • Mid-year markets review and outlook web conference with Mark Burgess, Jim Cielinski and Leigh Harrison – Friday 5 July, 9.00am, UK time

      Equities have enjoyed strong performance since the beginning of 2013 but more recently the rally has lost momentum as investors have become concerned that the US Federal Reserve could start to taper its quantitative easing (QE) programme. Core sovereign bonds have also performed poorly in recent weeks, again reflecting worries that the Fed is getting ready to scale back its bond-buying programme.

      Join Threadneedle’s CIO Mark Burgess, Head of Fixed Income Jim Cielinski and Head of Equities Leigh Harrison as they discuss topics including:

      - The likely implications of QE tapering
      - The global impact of the recent stimulus measures announced by the Japanese authorities (‘Abenomics’)
      - The outlook for the major asset classes for the remainder of the year and into 2014

      Participants will also be able to submit questions at the registration stage or during the call.
