    Mark Callender, Patrick Bone, Robin Hubbard, and Kevin Beirne
    The UK’s retired population are living healthier for longer and with that comes changing lifestyle preferences as a result of these changes. Retirement living communities seek to address this demographic shift, with the provision of high quality, permanent accommodation with plenty of facilities and opportunities for keeping physically fit and mentally healthy. We would be delighted if you could join us for a webinar to explore the drivers behind the growth of this market, the opportunity in the UK and why we believe the Covid-19 pandemic will not halt its popularity.

    At the webinar you will hear from:

    Mark Callender, Head of Real Estate Research
    Patrick Bone, Fund Manager, UK Real Estate
    Robin Hubbard, Head of Real Estate Capital

    Mark Callender, Head of Real Estate Research

    Peter Harvey, Sriram Reddy
    Credit markets have endured a tough time of late following an indiscriminate sell-off as investors rushed for the exit door. While it is clear some sectors face some serious challenges, there are others that could perform well and which now look attractively valued.

    Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship & Lesley-Ann Morgan, Head of Multi-Asset Strategy
    With a pension scheme’s Statement of Investment Principles (SIP) now containing trustees’ policies on financially material considerations (including environmental, social and governance matters), the stewardship of investments and the extent to which members’ views are considered, attention is now on October 2020 when trustees must produce an implementation report explaining how they have followed and acted on the investment policies outlined in their SIP.

    Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship and Lesley-Ann Morgan, Head of Multi-Asset Strategy, will discuss the upcoming need for trustees to report to scheme members on the progress they have made in integrating sustainability into their scheme’s default investment strategy. They will also examine the level of reporting available and how investment strategies have adapted to integrate ESG as part of the day-to-day investment decision making process, to help trustees meet this new requirement.

    Michelle Russell-Dowe, Head of Securitized Credit, Schroders
    Given the challenges facing ‘traditional’ fixed income, we think segments of the securitized market warrant consideration for being a strategic portfolio component, given their better fundamentals and lower volatility compared to the more popular (and crowded) credit markets. Hear from Head of Securitized Credit Michelle Russell-Dowe as she gives her insights and opinions on the securitized space, how we expect the asset class to fare in today’s low rate environment, and where she sees opportunities within the consumer-driven, housing and real estate segments.

    Schroders' Global Head of Stewardship Jessica Ground provides the Team's views on their latest ESG-related research
  • Sustainability Quarterly Recorded: May 1 2019 36 mins
    Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship at Schroders, and team
    Corporate governance is a well-practices component of ESG analysis. But what about a company's social and/or environmental footprint on society. This is a much more difficult arena of analysis to do with any consistency or success.

    In this edition of our quarterly series, Jessica Ground and Andy Howard discuss SustainEx, a new proprietary tool that provides quantitative analysis of these factors across companies and sectors, so that investors can better understand the financial impact of doing good, or continuing unethical business practices.
  • Sustainability Quarterly Recorded: Jan 17 2019 38 mins
    Schroders' Sustainable Investment team

They will also touch on divestment practices and trends among several ‘sin sectors’.
  • Trick or Treat? Sustainability Quarterly with Jessica Ground Recorded: Oct 31 2018 22 mins
    Jessica Ground, Head of Stewardship at Schroders, and team
    On this All Hallows' Eve edition of Schroders’ Sustainability Quarterly webinar, we look at ESG-indexing, and ESG within the Emerging Markets, both areas that can potentially offer tricks & treats.

    The combination of rising demand for index-based investment products and an increasing appetite for strategies based on ESG criteria has led to a sharp increase in ESG-branded products. We highlight a number of reasons why these simple, low-cost solutions may not provide either the financial or sustainability outcomes investors are likely to expect.

    EM have tended to exhibit greater volatility than developed markets. Less stringent regulation, rapidly changing demographics and evolving policy environments can add to the uncertainty for EM investors. These
    issues are less likely to impact better managed, more sustainably run companies, in our view.
  • Credit Insights with David Knutson Recorded: Oct 2 2018 40 mins
    David Knutson, CFA, Head of Credit, Americas, Schroders
    Schroders recently held its Quarterly Fixed Income Investment Forum, and for this webinar David Knutson will give a glimpse into this 3-day discussion by recapping several debates that went on, including the state of the USD, and inflation. He will also offer a research analyst's perspective on another current debate sparked by recent tweets - quarterly reporting.
  • Assessing the concentration risks in the Emerging Markets Recorded: Sep 26 2018 27 mins
    Michael O'Brien, Ph.D, and Derek Power, Schroders QEP team
    Emerging market equities remain an attractive area to find growth. While liquidity and FX remain powerful drivers of EM asset prices, for those with a longer-term view, we think the fundamentals are strong and there remains compelling alpha to be had across region, sector, and market cap. So where are we seeing value?

    Join Dr Michael O’Brien and Derek Power from Schroders QEP team as they look at the secular changes that are transforming this dynamic and diverse asset class -- and where they see opportunities.

    No one wants to vacation on a beach full of plastic. With more regions talking about banning some plastic items, what is the impact for the plastics supply chain, and end users. Meanwhile, as summer temperatures reach record highs, we will revisit our Schroders Climate Progress Dashboard a year on from launch and see how the thermostat is re-calibrating. Finally, as you pack up the car for your big summer trip, is there a residual risk that is not being captured within the auto loan industry, despite banks tighten up their consumer protection rules and processes?
