  • What we don’t see in China’s debt risk Recorded: Jul 12 2017 30 mins
    Chi Lo
    The amount of China’s debt, which is predominately bank loans, is not as
    excessive as the news headlines have painted. In this 30-minute webcast with Chi Lo, our Senior Economist on China,
    we will discuss China’s debt reduction, including:
    - How China has started tackling its debt problem through practical
    means;
    - Would a policy to swiftly cut China’s debt-to GDP ratio be implausible;
    - Has deleveraging moved up China’s policy priority list;
    - What could help solve China’s problem of capital misallocation; and
    - Is China’s excess capacity making its debt risk worse?
  • The Green Bonds Revolution Recorded: Jun 28 2017 52 mins
    Felipe Gordillo
    The green bonds market has exploded in recent years from USD 20 billion in 2013 to more than 200 billion at the end of February this year - that’s 10 times growth in four years.*

    Green Bonds are bonds used to fund projects which benefit the environment or climate such as clean energy projects or developing brownfield sites.

    During this webcast our senior ESG analyst Felipe Gordillo will share his views on:

    • How the massive growth, improved liquidity and transparency in the green bonds market is making it easier for large investors to participate.
    • Why it’s still important to choose the correct issuers in this generally high quality market (around 80% are investment grade).
    • How Green bonds have shown reliably good performance for investors.
    • Our experience with investors in France (who have invested heavily in Green Bonds) and worldwide.
    • And finally how ‘emerging’ green bonds could boost future returns.

  • The Case for Active Currency Hedging Recorded: Mar 9 2017 25 mins
    Momtchil Pojarliev, PhD, CFA
    With the rising volatility in currency markets, investors are examining ways to achieve better risk-adjusted returns of their international equity portfolios.

    While passive hedging may reduce the currency risk of a portfolio, it subsequently faces liquidity risk and opportunity costs.

    As an alternative, active currency hedging aims to reduce drawdown and increase return within an investors’ portfolio.
