Fiona will discuss the background to the funds’ suspension, talk about the current portfolio positioning and share her thoughts on the outlook for the UK commercial property sector.

2016 has been a very strong year for Emerging Markets, although the recent election of Donald Trump as US president has sparked a stock market sell-off. Matthew Vaight, fund manager of the M&G Global Emerging Markets Fund, believes that the recent weakness could provide a good entry point for long-term, value-oriented investors.
In this webcast, Matthew will discuss why he and his team believe that if investors want to outperform in EM from here, they will need to refocus on fundamentals, most notably valuations, an approach, which has been rather out of fashion in both emerging and developed markets for most of this decade.
A webcast briefing by Jim Leaviss, Head of Retail Fixed Interest and Steven Andrew, Fund Manager in the Multi Asset Team.
In the webcast, Jim and Steven will give their reactions to the indicative US election results and market reaction - including comment on valuations and areas of opportunity.
The webcast is expected to last 45 minutes; there will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.
This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the launch of the M&G Optimal Income Fund. In that time the global economy was plunged into recession, the Eurozone project came under threat, and central banks cut interest rates to historic low levels. The ramifications of these events have been wide-ranging, with fixed income investors having to continually adjust their expectations for the levels the bond yields could plunge to. In this webcast, Richard will be discussing more recent events, including the UK’s decision to leave the EU and the upcoming US Presidential elections. With geopolitical events increasingly generating headwinds for the global economy, Richard will also discuss how central banks like the ECB and Bank of England will likely react to future crises, and which assets he thinks are best value within the fixed income universe.
The webcast is expected to last up to an hour. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.
In the webcast, Richard will give his reaction to Friday’s referendum result, give an update on market movements and what this may mean for investments.Read more >

Cloud applications and BYOD have brought new functionality to enterprise networks - and unfortunately, also new security weaknesses and opportunities for cyber espionage. The addition of an Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW) offers strategic protections within the network that can bolster existing defenses and limit potential exposures.
This webcast – “Strong on the Inside: The Growing Need for Internal Segmentation Firewalls” – features leading experts from Gartner and Fortinet as they discuss the latest in internal network security for today’s threat landscape, including:
•Why targeted attacks worldwide are becoming more pervasive, and how a single malicious breach can cripple a company
•How ISFWs differ from traditional firewalls - and why they can uniquely reduce the attack surface, contain internal threats, and minimize damages after a breach occurs
•Why multi-gigabit performance is critical to an ISFW’s ability to provide deep visibility without slowing down the network
