As politics continue to be the key driver of uncertainty and risk in 2017, David Coombs, Fund Manager and Head of Multi-Asset Investments at Rathbones discusses the anomalies and opportunities that active managers can exploit, both in stock selection and asset allocation.
Join us on Tuesday 24th January at 11am as David Coombs talks about the likelihood of inflation in the UK, Trumponomics and the impact of divergent monetary policy.
The Rathbone Multi Asset Portfolios have been designed for advisers seeking to generate a level of return within defined levels of risk for clients. This approach differs from most multi-asset products, which seek to maximise returns against their peers rather than being managed to a client-led volatility expectation.

This is the second in a series of three webcasts looking at Solvency II from the point of view of the insurance company CIO.
Rates are low, spreads are tight, and Solvency II is constraining the ability of insurers to pursue the credit investment strategies employed in the past (such as securitisations)
Where are we in the credit cycle, and what it means for the most attractive maturity segments on the credit curve, sector biases, and preference for strong covenants and/or senior secured loans
What strategies work best under Solvency II
Outright loans tend to be more attractive than securitisations
Short-dated credit is more attractive than long-dated credit
