Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

M&G Talks: Can impact investing be at the centre of the recovery?

As the world eventually emerges from the ravages of Covid-19, John William Olsen, Fund Manager of the M&G (Lux) Positive Impact Fund will outline how impact investing is likely to play an important role in the recovery.

Through its dual objective of seeking to achieve financial returns and positive societal impact, we believe impact investing is ideally placed to address the social inequalities exacerbated by the crisis and promote green reconstruction.

Please join us on 16 June at 09:00 BST when John William will give concrete examples of purposeful listed companies that we believe can contribute to creating a safer, greener, more equitable world, and deliver attractive returns.


Please note, the value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.

  • M&G Talks: Enhancing prospective returns in a low return environment Jul 16 2020 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Dave Fishwick, Juan Nevado, Steven Andrew and Craig Moran
    Despite being in the midst of one of the most challenging economic periods in history we have actually witnessed three exceptional decades for the traditional long-only 60/40 balanced fund.

    Equities and bonds have enjoyed stunning bull markets and, over the last 25 years, have provided negative correlation during equity bear markets. The result has been a staggering return for this type of ‘naïve’ strategy: Looking ahead, however, the journey looks a lot tougher and we are looking at the lowest prospective yield on a 60/40 equity/bond portfolio that we have seen in the past 40 years.

    That is a sobering thought for future returns and is an environment which will require investors to expect more dynamic and tactical investing in order to be able to deliver returns.

    We invite you on 16 July at 09:00 BST to a conversation with Dave Fishwick, Juan Nevado, Steven Andrew and Craig Moran to discuss their outlook for Multi Asset Investing in this challenging environment.

  • M&G Talks: COVID-19: Inflationary or Deflationary? Recorded: Jun 2 2020 56 mins
    Jim Leaviss
    Please join our M&G Talks webcast as we examine what the Covid-19 crisis could mean for inflation.

    We will be discussing the potential short and long-term impacts on inflation, whether an inflationary or deflationary regime is more likely going forward and if central bank inflation targeting will still be relevant in the new economic environment. We will also be examining whether the crisis poses a threat to well-established, long-term secular trends, with a particular focus on the emergence of deglobalisation. Finally, we will be looking at which credit sectors might be set to benefit the most in the new inflationary environment.
