  • 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

  • DWS Trend Talks on ESG: Climate Tech & Next Gen Infrastructure Recorded: Jul 8 2020 57 mins
    Martin Caspary, Senior Thematic Investment Specialist and Tim Bachmann , Lead Portfolio Man
    The COVID pandemic has triggered ESG investments, which have proven to outperform traditional investments. Concern for the environment and climate change will grow in the long term and will position itself as one of the main systemic risks. In this context, the development of infrastructures and buildings that allow the transformation of our society towards sustainable development will be vital.

    Therefore, at DWS we want to present two investment opportunities in ESG:

    _Adaptation and mitigation of climate change with DWS ESG Invest Climate Tech

    _The development of new infrastructures that favor the sustainable transition of our society with DWS Invest ESG Next Gen Infrastructure
