  • Defensive assets: Offence wins games but Defence wins championships Jun 2 2020 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Pierre Debru, Director, Research, WisdomTree and Christopher Gannatti, CFA, Head of Research, Europe, WisdomTree
    Covid-19 has put a break on the world economy, with most countries showing extreme contractions in the first quarter of 2020. The situation for the rest of the year remains highly uncertain with economists debating the shape of the recovery. In such uncertain times, the investors’ objective should be to build versatile portfolios that can adapt to quickly changing market conditions and can resist unexpected events. In other words, all weather-portfolios that while behaving defensively can also participate in market rallies.

    Join this webinar where Pierre Debru, Director, Research, WisdomTree and Christopher Gannatti, CFA, Head of Research, Europe, WisdomTree will shed some light on which assets could be best suited for an uncertain environment. The webinar will conclude with a live Q&A session.

    This webinar will focus on:
    o Macro Review of environment with focus on uncertainty
    o Introduction of Framework that focuses on versatile assets best suited for uncertainty
    o Asset by Asset Class Review of those Versatile Assets
    o Portfolio Examples

    Mobeen Tahir, Research, WisdomTree | Tom Jamie, Commodity Investor Derivatives, BNP Paribas
    The recent market volatility is impacting different commodity markets in different ways, and thus highlighting the value of optimising a commodity portfolio. As each commodity has its own unique drivers and fundamentals, holding a basket of commodities can be quite heterogeneous.

  • Cloud Computing: An investment solution during a global pandemic? Recorded: May 15 2020 50 mins
    Chris Gannati, Head of Research, WisdomTree | David Wehrs, Partner & Head of Platform, BVP | Byron Deeter, Partner, BVP
    As we write these words, social distancing has become the “new normal”—at least for the time being. Economic activity in many countries has been halted, as the priority has become focused much more on public health. Cloud computing companies have leapt to the fore, especially in those businesses where employees can shift to working from home and communicating through videos and webinars. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) firms occupy an interesting place in society today as many people try to continue certain work and leisure activities in a more digital or virtual way.

    Join our webinar with Bessemer Venture Partners, to find out how investing in Cloud Computing may enhance your portfolio, as the world is rapidly changing to meet these new ways of working.

    Highlights include:
    + Setting the context of the current market environment
    + Highlighting specific examples of companies doing well with the cloud business model in the current environment
    + Actions that Cloud Companies are taking with the goal of helping society in the current crisis

  • Investing in Oil: Understanding the Impact of the Future Curve Recorded: May 13 2020 55 mins
    Research Team at WisdomTree
    Covid-19 has put a break on the world economy, with most economies showing extreme contractions in the first quarter of 2020 that could deepen in the second quarter.

    Oil demand has plummeted in this economic crisis, while supply has been slow to react, creating an unprecedented supply glut, and sending oil prices to historically low levels.

    Such price levels might be a good entry point to initiate a position and participate in a potential rebound, but investors also need to carefully evaluate the shape of the oil futures curve.

    The dynamics of investing in commodities through futures contract need to be thoroughly assessed before investing, join our webinar as we explore these complexities and answer the below essential questions.

    • What do investors need to consider?
    • What is roll yield?
    • How to estimate it?
    • How much of an impact can it have on an investor’s overall return?

    Followed by Q&A
  • Oil’s Greek Tragedy Recorded: Apr 15 2020 56 mins
    Nitesh Shah, Director of Research
    In March 2020 oil markets were met with a sudden shock of lost demand as airlines stopped flying, ships were docked, road traffic fell and economic activity was curtailed amid mass lock-downs to encourage social distancing. Further to this, producer countries in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies have increased production and set off a price war. As a result, Q1 2020 has seen the lowest oil prices, making it the worst quarter on record.

    How did we get here and where can we go next?

    Join this webinar as Nitesh Shah, Director of Research, explores these current dynamics in the oil market.
  • AT1 CoCos: New insights as the asset class hits unprecedented yield levels Recorded: Apr 8 2020 51 mins
    Lidia Treiber, CFA, Director, Research, WisdomTree and Wim Schoutens, Professor in Financial Engineering, University of Leuve
    As the impact of Covid-19 has significantly impacted many asset classes, AT1 CoCos faced a sharp rise in yields to new highs from the lows seen in January 2020. While the capital ratios of many European banks remain at healthy levels, European bank equities year to date have fallen north of 40% making investors wonder about the health of the European banking system.

    In this webinar, we are joined by Prof. Wim Schoutens, independent expert advisor to the European Commission and author of several books on Contingent Capital, and Lidia Treiber, CFA, Director of Research at WisdomTree. Together, they will try to demystify the AT1 CoCo asset and explore the investment opportunities within this asset class. The webinar will conclude with a live Q&A session.

    • What AT1 CoCos are and why this is of interest to investors

  • Panel Discussion: Current State of the Gold Market Recorded: Mar 31 2020 57 mins
    Panel Discussion
    With financial markets in turmoil as Coronavirus takes hold in Europe and the US, we have seen mixed performance for gold. However, historically gold provided a safe haven for investors during times of uncertainty.

    To help investors understand what's happening in the gold market right now, we will be hosting a panel discussion on the 31st of March with independent experts from the World Gold Council and London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) to tackle the following key points of discussion:

    Points of Discussion:

    • Latest perspectives on gold - where to next?
    • Current state of demand for physical gold bullion and jewellery
    • Responsible sourcing of gold and Basel III
    • The strategic vs tactical case for gold in a portfolio

    In addition, we will also be addressing audience questions to help investors navigate the current tumultuous environment.

    Speakers:

    Krishan Gopaul, World Gold Council
    Sakhila Mirza, London Bullion Market Association
    Nitesh Shah, Director, Research at WisdomTree
    Pierre Debru, Director, Research at WisdomTree
  • Gold Price Outlook: Where to Next? Recorded: Mar 19 2020 58 mins
    Nitesh Shah, Director of Research at WisdomTree & Pierre Debru, Director of Research at WisdomTree
    Gold is often a port of call in uncertain times and we are clearly living in uncertain times. Containment of Coronavirus has failed and global markets have entered into turmoil with fears that a new global recession has arrived and it’s unknown how severe the fallout will be.

    The current crisis has many unique features and efforts to quell its impact on markets are likely to have to be unorthodox. Markets are largely unimpressed by the central bank action so far. Could gold take a step higher as we enter the unknown?

    Join us for a webinar in which Nitesh Shah, Director of Research will explore where the price of gold could go across a number of different scenarios using his gold model.

    Pierre Debru will also examine how shocks like the one we are living through are rarely predicted and why consequently there may be a strong strategic case for holding gold as diversifier within investor portfolios.

    • As central banks across the world expand monetary policy and reach into their tool boxes for new instruments, could we see a structural shift for gold?
