RLAM Fixed Income - six monthly update

Senior Client Portfolio Manager, Ewan McAlpine, presents our six monthly update webinar. The clouds of uncertainty six months ago have anything but cleared. Against an increasingly lacklustre global economic backdrop, and with additional uncertainty in the UK and Europe around Brexit and more globally around US-China trade, fixed income assets and their returns have proved surprisingly resilient in general and market volatility is surprisingly low. But the nature of uncertainty means that the risks of volatility and poor performance even in the near term have not been removed. Find out what we consider to be the most appropriate strategies to see investors through this environment of mixed messages.

  • A valuation focus that has outperformed in the current environment… how? Recorded: Apr 11 2019 39 mins
    Peter Rutter, Head of Equities
    Differentiated stock selection across the corporate Life Cycle has allowed the Global Equity strategy to outperform in the last three years, despite a the process focus on a valuation discipline leading to an overweight to value and valuation factors. As a result of stock picking, the strategy was able to outperform in both 2016 and 2018 despite these being very different years for market styles. In this webinar, the Head of Global Equities Peter Rutter recaps on this investment process and demonstrates the power of investing across the corporate Life Cycle with the team’s differentiated process. The framework is brought to life through three stock examples, each at a different stage in the Life Cycle.

  • Global equities update Recorded: Nov 21 2018 33 mins
    Peter Rutter
    Peter Rutter, Head of Equities will be focusing on the factors that influence how RLAM’s Global Equity funds perform and how these fit with clients’ wider portfolios. In previous webinars Peter has introduced the differentiated and proven investment process employed by the RLAM Global Equity fund managers. This process leads to differentiated portfolios with performance driven by stock selection and some clear and consistent style and factor characteristics. In particular the funds have tended to perform best when valuation factors are outperforming and there is a risk-off environment in equities. Peter will explain why this is consistent with the investment process and consequently how the portfolios might fit a strong complement to managers with more global growth and larger cap exposures in global equities.

  • Finding the right target – using ESG in credit investing Recorded: Oct 31 2018 45 mins
    Ashley Hamilton Claxton, Head of Responsible Investment & Martin Foden, Head of Credit Research
    There’s a temptation to think that both equity and credit investors should look at ESG in the same way. This approach can lead to a quicker roll-out, as existing, more established equity process can just be used for credit analysis.

    In this session, RLAM's Ashley Claxton and Martin Foden will explain why they think that the scope and application of ESG factors is quite different: from the different make-up of bond indices, to the subtleties of bond structure, a differentiated approach has to be taken. The only similarity? That if ESG is seen as an ‘extra’ part of your security analysis, you’re probably not doing it right.




    Ashley Hamilton Claxton is responsible for coordinating and overseeing RLAM’s approach to responsible investing across all of our asset classes. She has management responsibility for our company engagement, corporate governance analysis, and proxy voting. Ashley is RLAM’s subject matter expert and spokesperson on responsible investing and corporate governance.

    Martin Foden joined RLAM at the start of 1998. He initially joined RLAM's UK Equity Team, with responsibility for analysing the transport, business services and construction sectors, as well as managing balanced pension funds. This experience greatly enhanced RLAM’s credit research capabilities when he joined the Fixed Income Team at the beginning of 2003. Since moving to the Fixed Income Team, he has been instrumental in developing RLAM’s analytical process through the advancement of the team’s cashflow forecasting and evaluation of issuer structures.

    Will Kenney
    Will Kenney, Senior Fund Manager, presents our latest global equity monthly update.

This shortage of internal investment opportunities for companies has led to less capital reinvestment and increasing share buy backs and acquisitions. He explains how the RLAM equity team approach, based on lifecycle insights, helps to identify corporate wealth creation which is the dominant factor in long term shareholder returns.
