  • Investment opportunities in the ETF Bond market Jul 16 2020 8:30 am UTC 30 mins
    Sidi Kleefeld & Olivier Souliac
    The US Federal Reserve has, for the first time, began purchasing exchange-traded funds (ETFs) as a way to direct money rapidly into credit markets. The move is an historic milestone for the Fed, and acted as an important signal to bond investors.
    Meanwhile, the ongoing market volatility caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in record trading volumes, set against a backdrop of reduced liquidity in all asset classes. ETFs have so far, and once again, proven their resilience and acted as instant market access tools, as well as providing price discovery and liquidity for investors during stressed markets.

  • DWS Trend Talks with Xtrackers: Factors, Sectors and ESG Recorded: Jun 18 2020 35 mins
    Antonio Royo-Villanova, DWS Passive Sales Iberia
    In this session, we will explore the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on different sector and factor returns.

    As single stock return dispersion rises, selection across factors and sectors can help more than ever in generating excess returns. This is especially true during volatile markets and the drifts experienced so far have shown the pandemic as a catalyst for existing trends:

    _Increasing need for Health care from researching vaccines to catering to ageing populations, and the continuous rise of IT and Communication services.

    _Profitability issues around brick & mortar retailers and European financials, as well as potentially stranded assets in the traditional Energy sector.

    _Continued outperformance of momentum, low volatility, quality and ESG stocks overall.
  • VBDO ONLINE EXPERT SESSION, powered by DWS Recorded: Jun 16 2020 92 mins
    An overview of all presenters is available in the webinar description
    CLIMATE TRANSITION RISK, BEFORE AND AFTER THE COVID-19 WAKE-UP CALL.

    VBDO (Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development) invites you to join this online expert session.

    Based on our yearly benchmark research for Dutch pension funds and insurance companies with regards to responsible investment, we concluded that investors often still lack a comprehensive approach for dealing with climate risk.

    However, to be aligned with the Paris agreement, companies, regulators, governments and investors should together focus their actions to deliver a climate neutral economy. With many governments struggling to formulate clear policies, they take different approaches and show different progress at different speed.

    How has COVID-19 changed the outlook, what will it take to keep us at these lower emission levels and what is the risk that we will simply rush back to business as usual, and in doing so precipitate the next disruptive crisis?

    And how will investors assume their responsibility, for example by adjusting their portfolios to be positioned to minimise the risks and capture the opportunities during the transition to a carbon neural economy?

    This VBDO online expert session, in cooperation with DWS, offers the opportunity to find answers to these questions, enjoy a lively discussion with renowned experts in the field and more.

    Program Online Expert Session June 16th, 3:00 - 4:30 PM:
    • Introduction by Jacqueline Duiker, Senior Manager Sustainability & Responsible Investment, VDBO
    • The Inevitable Policy Response by Don Gerritsen, Regional Head Benelux PRI and Jason Eis, Executive Director Vivid Economics
    • Dark and light green low carbon benchmarks and indices by Andreas Hoepner, University College Dublin and member of the EU Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance
    • Transition risks and opportunities by Michael Lewis, Head of ESG Thematic Research at DWS
    • Q&A

    We hope to welcome you.

Together they will explore why and how investor action on climate risk needs to be taken to the next level. Stewardship and active ownership have become central in the world of investments and being a responsible investor, once a niche area, is becoming essential and ultimately a licence to operate from a fiduciary perspective. As we are battling COVID-19, we realise just how vulnerable our global capital market is to unexpected developments and how we need to act together to address a common issue, whether a global disease or climate change.

    Agenda:
    _The urgency of the climate crisis and how Covid-19 might invigorate action and change investing forever
    - How regulatory developments are increasingly fostering long-termism
    - Stewardship creates added value not only in qualitative but also in quantitative terms, and it is becoming an important driver for asset manager selection
    - Are investors doing enough: the need to focus on relevant areas in evaluating progress of companies’ climate policies

    Te invitamos a una nueva sesión de DWS Trend Talks con César Muro, DWS Head of Passive Sales Iberia, en la que exploraremos el impacto de la crisis de COVID-19 en la rentabilidad de diferentes ETFs de Sectores y Factores.

    A medida que aumenta la dispersión de la rentabilidad de una sola acción, la selección entre factores y sectores puede ayudar más que nunca a generar un exceso de rentabilidad. Esto es especialmente cierto en mercados volátiles como el actual que han demostrado que la pandemia es un catalizador de las tendencias existentes:

    _La creciente necesidad de atención médica, desde la investigación de vacunas hasta el abastecimiento de poblaciones que envejecen, y el aumento contínuo de los servicios de tecnología de la información y comunicación.

    _Preocupación por la rentabilidad del sector minorista y el financiero europeo, así como los activos potencialmente en desuso del sector energético tradicional

    _Continuación del buen comportamiento de las acciones momentum, low volatility, quality y ESG.
