Sector Rotation – Time to take a closer look?

Presented by

Pierre Debru, Quantitative Strategist

About this talk

Sector exposures are fundamental drivers of risk and return, with high dispersion between sector returns. The diversification demonstrated by MSCI World sectors is pervasive across regions; a remarkable feature, as it could have been significantly reduced by the large number of stock members in each sector. Flows into sector ETFs have increased significantly over the last year, showing the ever-changing investor mindset as they move from traditional country allocation to factor, sector and regional plays. Healthcare and financials captured the lion’s share in 2016. Deutsche Asset Management’s db X-trackers ETF platform offers a number of sector exposures across several different regions: global, European, EM and China. Deutsche Asset Management’s passive business has recently published a paper on Sector Rotation. This webcast will be hosted by Pierre Debru. He is a Director within Deutsche Asset Management, developing Investment Strategies and Model Portfolios within Passive Asset Management. He has 12 years of experience in Quantitative Research, Fund Structuring and Portfolio Construction. Previously, Mr. Debru was structuring and managing Structured Funds on all asset classes (UCITS or otherwise) at Nomura Alternative Investment Management. Prior to moving to Nomura, Mr. Debru was a Quantitative Analyst within BNP Paribas Investment Partners, Lehman Brothers Asset Management and Aviva Investors.
