  • Strategies for downside protection of your investment portfolio Recorded: Jun 12 2017 36 mins
    Tina Adatia, Haran Karunakaran
    Please join us for a discussion on different approaches to add downside portfolio protection in the current investing environment of lower yields, low volatility and generally neutral or rich valuations. As many investors perceive traditional fixed income solutions to be less attractive in providing downside protection and the cost of outright hedging options seems high, many discussions revolve around other portfolio diversifiers and options to improve resilience of portfolios in the downside scenario. The session will focus on best ways to protect client portfolios and pros and cons of various approaches.
  • Bonds are Different: Resolving the Active versus Passive Debate Recorded: Apr 28 2017 28 mins
    Tina Adatia & Olga Serhiyevich
    Opinions in the active-passive investment debate have drifted poles apart over recent years. We revisit this discussion by contrasting equity and bonds. We look at performance numbers and find that, unlike their stock counterparts, active bond mutual funds have largely outperformed their median passive peers over our sample period. We offer conjectures as to why bonds and stocks differ. Differences may be due to:

    •The large proportion of noneconomic bond investors
    •Benchmark rebalancing frequency and turnover
    •Structural tilts in fixed income space
    •The wide range of financial derivatives available to active bond managers
    •Security-level credit research and new issue concessions

    In short, informational efficiencies make beating equity markets difficult. But we believe that's not the case with fixed income, where noneconomic and passive investors pursue agendas that are not exclusively about total return
    Put simply, bonds are different.
  • PIMCO’s Cyclical Outlook: Strengthening Economic Expansion Recorded: Apr 20 2017 14 mins

  • Finding Value in Fully-Valued Markets Recorded: Apr 12 2017 8 mins
    Daniel Ivascyn, Group CIO, PIMCO

  • Opportunities in the mortgage sector Recorded: Apr 6 2017 28 mins
    Ryan Murphy - Product Manager, Dan Hyman - Managing Director and Portfolio Manager, PIMCO
    The global mortgage-backed securities (MBS) market offers an often overlooked opportunity set. Securities range across the spectrum in terms of interest rate and credit risk sensitivity allowing flexibility to navigate changing markets. Mortgage performance is more often tied to consumer credit and real estate fundamentals rather than the strength of corporate balance sheets. Allocating to MBS means investors can help diversify existing bond allocations and potentially enhance returns without increasing equity correlation.
  • What to Make of the Fed’s March Message Recorded: Mar 17 2017 4 mins
    Richard Clarida, Global Strategic Advisor, PIMCO
    At its March meeting, the Fed hiked rates as expected and left the projected path for rates unchanged. Yet, as Chair Yellen likes to remind us, the Fed is not on autopilot.

  • Equity Diversification in a world of near-zero rates Recorded: Jun 22 2016 32 mins
    Michael Connor and Graham Rennison, PIMCO
    With interest rates at or below zero in many developed economies, investors are broadening their search for positive-returning assets that can help diversify equity risk. Fixed income assets, whose prices traditionally rally as equity markets fall, are seeing reduced usage in this role, because many investors believe interest rates have limited scope to fall further. The webinar will discuss the pros and cons of using trend-following strategies as an alternative way to diversify equity risk.
  • Investment opportunities in the energy markets - master limited partnerships Recorded: Jun 7 2016 31 mins

  • How to Play the Brexit Blues Recorded: Jun 6 2016 5 mins

  • Brexit, Boris & the BoE...what's priced in for UK credit? Recorded: May 13 2016 45 mins
    Mike Amey, Head of Sterling Portfolios, and Ketish Pothalingam, UK Credit Portfolio Manager, PIMCO
    On the 23rd June UK voters will go to the polls to vote on 'Brexit' or 'British Exit' from the European Union.

    While current market valuations partially reflect the risk of a Brexit – investor sentiment has shifted to a potential rate cut by the BoE and sterling touching a 5 year low against the dollar - the response in credit markets has been more muted and quite varied. This presents opportunities to capitalise on market dislocations as we head into this important political event.

    Please join Mike Amey, Head of Sterling Portfolios, and Ketish Pothalingam, UK Credit Portfolio Manager, for a discussion on the probability of Brexit, its implications for the UK and where PIMCO is identifying opportunities across its portfolios.
