A sustainable foundation for credit analysis

ESG investing started as an equity specialism, and much of the data and analysis used today is still centred on equities, so are ESG factors relevant for corporate bonds and what role do Green bonds play? Martin Foden explores this and discusses sustainable fixed income investing and how two distinct processes – ESG and credit analysis – can be integrated to seek to achieve positive outcomes for investors.

  • Global equities: themes and opportunities in 2020 Feb 12 2020 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Peter Rutter
    2019 proved to be a very strong year for global equities, which posted their third-best annual returns over the last 30 years. But what does 2020 have in store and where do we go from here? With over 5,000 companies to consider, global equity fund managers face a huge challenge to find the winners and avoid potential losers. How can they stand out? The answer – by thinking differently.

    Peter Rutter, Head of Equities, will discuss what the market themes are and where opportunities lie in the year ahead for global equity investing. He will also explain the differentiated, proven and repeatable process that the RLAM global equity team has developed to find stocks ‘off the beaten track’ that they think have the potential to deliver long-term performance.

    2019 proved to be the classic match of two halves – H1 performance was led by growth stocks, while in H2 the focus shifted to value. But where should we be looking in 2020, and what opportunities do medium sized companies in the UK offer compared to their counterparts beyond these shores? Henry Lowson, Senior Fund Manager of our UK Mid-Cap Growth Fund, runs the rule over the last 12 months, picks out the key themes for the next year and explains how he and his team look to take advantage of these opportunities.

  • Panel Discussion - Strategies of Income Funds Recorded: Sep 10 2019 63 mins
    Kandarp Acharya, Wells Capital Management | Justin Simler | Etienne Vincent, BNP Paribas AM | Ewan McAlpine, RLAM
    Multi asset income funds have seen increasing interest as companies need better returns on cash; schemes become cash flow negative and individuals seek income in retirement. There are, however, many different approaches to generating an income including both fixed income and multi asset income approaches. These can have a focus on synthetic or natural income, and very different targets for income, capital growth and protection.

    This webinar will discuss topics that include:

    Is the demand for income likely to persist?
    Should income even matter?
    What is a sustainable level of income?
    What are the strengths and drawbacks of the different approaches?
    What are the risks of an income portfolio and how do you manage them?

    Moderated by Justin Simler - Consultant
