  • Global markets: What to expect in 2017? Dec 16 2016 10:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Azad Zangana, Schroders
    After the year that was 2015, no one could have predicted what happened in 2016. From the UK's decision to leave the EU, to Donald Trump winning the US election, 2016 has not been short of surprises.

    Join Azad Zangana, Economist, for his insight on the themes that will shape global markets in 2017.
  • Schroders: What does the election of Donald Trump mean for Emerging Market Debt? Recorded: Nov 30 2016 12 mins
    Alan Cauberghs
    It appeared that the environment for emerging market debt was improving as many developing countries have brought inflation under control, have seen an improvement in their competitiveness and have scope to reduce interest rates. But the election of Donald Trump has raised the spectre of US protectionism and resulted in rising Treasury yields. Alan Cauberghs, Investment Director, explores whether the outlook for emerging market debt has changed materially and if the asset class can still generate attractive returns in the revised political climate

  • Can absolute return bond funds achieve their targets in a low yield environment? Recorded: Sep 21 2016 14 mins
    Alan Cauberghs
    Schroders webconference: Many absolute return bond funds have found it difficult to generate their target level of returns over recent quarters as many bond yields have fallen below zero. Alan Cauberghs, Senior Investment Director for Fixed Income, examines the tools that managers can use to generate positive absolute returns and what market conditions are required to achieve their targets in future.

  • An uneasy policy truce? Recorded: Jun 16 2016 14 mins
    Alan Cauberghs
    We may now have reached a watershed in global central bank policy co-ordination. It remains to be seen whether the Federal Reserve will be able to leave interest rates at a level which, while appropriate for the global backdrop, may be increasingly inappropriate for the domestic US economy. In our latest webconference, Alan Cauberghs will explore whether the current uneasy truce between central banks and markets will persist and the implications for fixed income investors.
  • Does looking at ESG add alpha? An independent view of the evidence Recorded: Jun 15 2016 46 mins
    Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship, Schroders, and Rochester Cahan, CFA, Empirical Research Partners LLC
    The conversation about ESG investing is gaining traction across markets. Clients no longer ask 'do you have an ESG strategy?' but rather 'do ESG high scores result in outperformance?' Collaborating with Empirical Research Partners, this webinar will showcase their findings on ESG, what factors show the strongest correlation and how they think asset owners and fund managers should be taking this forward.

    Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship, Schroders will be joined by Rochester ‘Rocky’ Cahan, CFA, the U.S. Portfolio Strategist at Empirical Research Partners LLC. Mr Cahan joined the firm in 2013 to focus on a broad spectrum of research topics ranging from bottom-up stock-selection to top-down macroeconomic analysis. In addition to his highly regarded practitioner research, Mr. Cahan has published a number of academic articles in top journals including The Journal of Empirical Finance, The Journal of Banking and Finance, and The Journal of Portfolio Management. Mr. Cahan received a double degree in Mathematical Physics and Finance from Massey University in New Zealand in 2003, and is also a CFA charterholder.
  • The value add of active management – case study: Battersea studios, London Recorded: Jun 2 2016 3 mins
    James Lass
    Battersea is an emerging London location, that on the back of significant infrastructure investment, has undergone significant regeneration. James Lass, Fund Manager of the Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, gives a tour of Battersea Studios, an asset that has witnessed strong capital and income growth on the back of this regeneration and active asset management
  • Schroder Real Estate case study: Paris Rive Gauche, Paris Recorded: Jun 2 2016 2 mins
    Thomas Guyot
    Paris is the largest, most liquid, and most transparent investment market for real estate investors in Europe. Thomas Guyot, Head of Real Estate Investment France, walks through a 23,000sqm asset located in Paris Rive Gauche. The JV was structured when the project was largely de-risked, and is the best performing asset in the portfolio today.
  • Schroder Real Estate case study: Alexanderplatz and Ostkreuz, Berlin Recorded: Jun 2 2016 2 mins
    Sascha Harms
    Berlin was recently rated the number one investment market by ULI and PWC. Schroders anticipated this trend three years ago, and secured a number of mis-priced investment opportunities across the capital. Sascha Harms, Head of Real Estate Investment Germany, opens the doors to two such assets.
  • What do schemes want? - The view from Schroders DC Conference 2016 Recorded: May 25 2016 2 mins
    David Heathcock, DC Product Manager
    We know that schemes want to improve outcomes for savers. We believe that means they should make investment an important part of their governance process:

    Our research suggests workplace schemes can be divided among “genuine carers”, those seeking a competitive edge, and the “box tickers”

    Effective implementation requires prioritisation, allocation of resources and engagement with members: investment managers can and should form part of this equation

    But asset managers need to break down barriers with clients, becoming trusted and collaborative suppliers who help make it easy to integrate investment into governance.
  • Responding to the DC investment challenge - Stable growth phase Recorded: May 25 2016 3 mins
    Remi Olu-Pitan, Multi-Asset Fund Manager, Schroders
    The DC saver's journey falls into three phases: growth, when they need reward; stable growth, when there is a balance between risk and reward; and transition to retirement, when they need less risk:

    Stable growth:

    Even low levels of growth can have a significant impact on outcomes at this stage as pots tend to be a larger

    While aiming for strong returns, the investor also needs to be increasingly aware of risk, given the limited time available for losses to be recovered

    We try and improve the odds for savers by diversifying, adjusting asset allocations to suit economic conditions and seeking to manage downside risks.
  • Responding to the DC investment challenge - Transition into retirement Recorded: May 25 2016 2 mins
    Ugo Montrucchio, Multi-Asset Fund Manager
    The DC saver's journey falls into three phases: growth, when they need reward; stable growth, when there is a balance between risk and reward; and transition to retirement, when they need less risk:

    Transition into retirement:

    Savers in their later years need safety above all else, but enough growth to combat inflation, so diversification provides a cheap solution

    But diversification by asset class may not always provide diversity of risk when, for instance, equities and bonds move together after the same external shock

    To provide better protection, investors need to be aware of the economic environment and could benefit from “insurance” using volatility management.
  • Responding to the DC investment challenge - Growth Phase Recorded: May 25 2016 2 mins
    Peter Weidner, Head of Advanced Beta, Schroders
    The DC saver's journey falls into three phases: growth, when they need reward; stable growth, when there is a balance between risk and reward; and transition to retirement, when they need less risk:

    Growth phase:

    'Smart beta' seems to offer the opportunity to achieve performance with low fees,
    Schroders’ advanced beta portfolios can be constructed to deliver bespoke “baskets” of stocks to target specific themes

    The result is equity-like returns, but with lower volatility, which should be ideal for the investor in the growth phase.
  • Emerging Market Debt – How Long Can This Bull Run? Recorded: May 17 2016 38 mins
    James Barrineau, Co-Head of Emerging Markets Debt, Schroders
    After a very challenging 2015, emerging market debt has produced a strong, broad-based move forward thus far in 2016. Through the month of April, components of the asset class are up anywhere from 5% to 11%. An obvious question on the minds of all professional investors: Can this trend last? Please join Jim Barrineau, Co-Head of Emerging Market Debt Relative at Schroders, in a wide-ranging discussion on the current status of this asset class. Jim will cover the factors that have propelled the market so far in 2016, the anticipated drivers going forward, and the potential tail risks to the asset class.
  • Are bond markets right to be pricing in a recession? Recorded: May 5 2016 13 mins
    Alan Cauberghs
    Credit spreads have widened over recent quarters to the extent that they are now pricing in a level of defaults that would be consistent with a recession.

    In contrast, equity markets have rallied strongly from the lows reached in the opening weeks of the year.

    We assess why this dichotomy has arisen and whether bond or equity markets are a better reflection of economic reality.

    Tony Smedley
    We are moving from a capital led cycle to one driven by occupier demand. The ongoing recovery, leading to improving demand and prospects for rental growth in key cities in continental Europe, provides a sound long-term investment case
  • UK real estate sector commentary - H2 2016 Recorded: May 1 2016 2 mins
    Nick Montogomery
    With fears of a rate rise receding, the UK real estate market is continuing to benefit from occupational demand and rental growth. Markets with diversified local economies and above average GDP growth are best placed to benefit
