Credit is a significant part of many of our clients’ portfolios, which is why we started Credit Insights -- a new webinar series aimed at delivering our latest views and outlooks on the global credit market.
This session: Although we are seeing signs of a recovery in the global economy, there are risks to momentum for the balance of 2017. In the US, despite having failed to deliver on a number of campaign promises in his first 100 days in office, President Trump is still the best… and possibly last… chance for inflation and growth in the USA. Monetary stimulus has run its course. Next, is fiscal stimulus. Where does our research team differ from the market consensus on the potential winners and losers of potential tax and trade policy reform? We hope you can attend to find out.

This quarter’s ESG webinar will attempt to bring to life how ESG integration works within a fundamental investment process. Jessica and James will review the three pillars of ESG integration and review several recent stock examples.
Due to its episodic nature and measurement challenges, political risk has historically been ignored by investors or seen as an emerging markets phenomenon. Philip Chandler, CFA, of the Multi-Asset Investments team, will offer his insights as to why political risk may be here to stay and discusses the team’s framework for incorporating a distinctive assessment of political risk into its investment processes.
Hosted by Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship
