    Richard Clode, Alison Porter & Graeme Clark
    With strong balance sheets and having in many cases benefited from the COVID-19 crisis, technology companies have been able to continue to innovate putting them in a stronger position to disrupt weaker incumbents post-crisis.

    • How imminent IPOs of companies within the technology sector may help power a more sustainable future;
    • Emerging political hurdles around the US/China trade war and an anticipated wave of regulation

  • Supportive policy and more attractive spreads – what’s not to like? Recorded: Jun 24 2020 49 mins
    Tim Winstone
    Investment grade credit spreads have moved from being at relatively tight levels in January 2020, to the widest quartile three months later. In Europe the spread widening has come from the dual effect of higher investment grade corporate bond yields plus lower government bonds yields, prompting investors to consider whether now is the time to raise allocations to investment grade corporate bonds. In this presentation, Tim Winstone, portfolio manager of Janus Henderson’s European Investment Grade Strategy, tackles some of the questions investors are asking, including:

    • How does investment grade compare to government and high yield markets?
    • Does the technical picture of supportive monetary and fiscal policy outweigh fundamental and economic concerns?
    • How are we positioned and where might the biggest risks and opportunities lie?

    Seth Meyer, John Lloyd & John Kerschner
    Are markets finally starting to wash their hands of the Covid 19 crisis? Credit markets are showing signs of resilience, and concerns over the impact of a second wave of the virus appear to have been replaced with discussions around the path to recovery. So far, we have seen varying degrees of a recovery across different credit asset classes, highlighting the importance of being selective.

    In this webcast, co-managers of the Janus Henderson Multi-Sector Income Strategy discuss the rebound we are witnessing in credit markets, post March 2020, focusing on:

    -the effectiveness of the policymakers’ playbook — short term and long term impacts
    -potential risks that could retest the March market moves
    dispersion and dislocation across credit — opportunities and value?
    -constructing multi sector portfolios to navigate uncertain markets

    They will also review the performance of the strategy with highlights of current positioning and the outlook for the medium term.
