Equity Diversification in a world of near-zero rates
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.

As market volatility increases, investors may look to capitalize on idiosyncratic opportunities to grow returns. PIMCO Portfolio Manager, Asset Allocation Geraldine Sundstrom takes a deeper dive into three investment ideas that span the globe.
Three main economic indicators can inform where we are in the business cycle. Portfolio Manager, Multi-Asset Strategies Erin Browne discusses how these factors influence PIMCO’s asset allocation decisions.
The credit markets have started 2019 with a bang, in sharp contrast to the fourth quarter when risk assets sold off sharply, capping out one of the worst years for credit. With all this volatility, PIMCO wanted to provide a recap of recent market moves across investment grade and high yield credit and highlight relative value opportunities. Mark Kiesel, CIO for Global Credit, discusses PIMCO’s market outlook, answers top-of-mind client questions and provides actionable ideas to position portfolios for the year ahead.

Market volatility and rising rates have weighed on bond investors’ minds in 2018 but have created opportunities for attractive returns in 2019. One such area is Capital Securities where valuations are compelling and fundamentals are strong with banks’ capital levels at multi-decade highs.

Daniel Phillipson, Head of Product Management, EMEA
Markets entered 2018 with double-digit equity returns, strong momentum and expectations that the synchronized global growth and corporate earnings recovery we saw in 2017 will continue into 2018.
However, markets have been more uncertain year-to-date with recent volatility suggesting that change is in the wind for investors. Central banks globally are moving away from emergency levels of easing, and large fiscal stimulus in the U.S. in the late stages of the business cycle could have unintended consequences. And, of course, valuations matter.
So how do you approach the asset allocation conundrum when investing late in the cycle? Join us on the 13th to find out.
