  • DWS Trend Talks: Fixed Income Opportunities Recorded: Nov 11 2020 60 mins
    Oliver Eichmann, Markus Wiedemann and Oliver Albrecht, from DWS Fixed Income team
    Looking ahead while watching the step

    Fixed Income markets have delivered a strong and continuous rally since the March turbulence that impacted all bond segments but most severe in credit and emerging markets. Consequently, yields of high-grade government and covered bonds have declined to all-time lows and credit spreads have almost reached pre-Covid-19 levels.There are many bonds across the various sub-segments of credit markets that are still trading at elevated spread levels by margin.The key question is which fixed income opportunities are suitable for the current market environment as we are approaching the end of the year?

    In this context, we will highlight the fixed income funds:

    _DWS Eurozone Bonds Flexible
    _DWS Invest Short Duration Income

    The lead portfolio management team of Oliver Eichmann (Head of Rates EMEA) and Markus Wiedemann (Co-Head of Credit EMEA) will join this webinar to discuss the fixed income opportunities and their outlook and provide an insightful view into the positioning and allocation shifts of DWS Eurozone Bonds Flexible.

  • DWS Long View - The ongoing crisis and our long-term return expectations Recorded: Sep 9 2020 49 mins
    Francesco Curto, Hartwig Kos, Dirk Schlueter, Toby Dudley-Smith
    During this talk, we will discuss our latest research assessing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on long-term expected returns across asset classes.

    Back in April, we defined three scenarios based on assumptions of differing severity of the economic crisis caused by the pandemic: status-quo, 2009-repeat, and three-sigma. These are based on a bottom-up approach (rather than top-down), first analysing how fundamentals may have been impacted by the crisis, and how that flows through to expected returns. Over the past quarter, it has become clear that while the COVID-19 crisis is a three-sigma type event from an economic perspective, the impact on fundamentals for listed equities and corporate credit is likely to be comparable to those witnessed in 2009 (due to a combination of prompt actions from governments and central banks, better capitalisation in certain sectors, and a higher level of ‘sponginess’ by listed companies). Therefore the assumptions in 2009-repeat scenario are our base case.

    At an aggregate level, this leaves the long-term expected rate of return on a diversified portfolio of assets relatively low, but some attractive opportunities exist within equities and amongst alternative asset classes. This outlook is consistent with a ‘square root’ shaped economic recovery. However, a ‘W’ or ‘U’ shaped economic recovery would put further pressure on expected returns, especially in equities, liquid alternatives and credit.
  • Investment opportunities in the ETF Bond market Recorded: Jul 16 2020 34 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.

    Agenda & Speakers
    •Market recap and investment opportunities
    Sidi Kleefeld, Responsible ETF Advisory Sales Europe
    •Implementation with fixed income ETFs
    Olivier Souliac, Index Strategy & Analytics
