In the last few years, we have seen impressive bull market returns in the US equity space, however, strong economic fundamentals and 17x multiples implies strong equity returns that have yet to be realised. Interest rates and inflation remain at historic lows, corporate earnings continue to impress, US economic growth is accelerating, employment and housing numbers are strong and getting stronger, and consumers and businesses alike will soon start reaping the benefits of cheaper oil. Given these conditions, as a long only, active stock picker, we will explain why we see such tremendous opportunity in the US growth equity space right now. Using our proprietary fundamental research and financial analysis, we continue to identify the very best of the growth universe and then actively trade those names.

As ESG performance has grown significantly in importance for companies and asset managers in recent years, it's time to look at the numbers.
Is ESG screening a worthwhile tool? In a word, yes!
High ESG focus contributes to risk mitigation and in this session, we will share with you our research which shows that this is also mirrored in strong operational and share price performance. We will also share how predictive attributes (e.g future earnings stability and share price volatility) suggest that ESG research belongs in company valuation.
This live session (with Q&A) will give you insight into why we believe that companies and investors simply cannot afford not to care.

A few years ago "ESG” was just a page at the back of a presentation. Today it has achieved greater prominence with new initiatives such as impact investing and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. However, questions still remain about what ESG integration really means and whether the increasing use of frameworks and questionnaires is distracting from engagement.
This expert panel will look at what ESG integration means and at the practical implementation of ESG considerations within portfolios. They will discuss whether ESG can be implemented, at best, without negatively impacting returns or whether there is recent evidence that it can actually benefit both risk and return.
While impact investing dominates the headlines, most of the assets that firms manage on behalf of their clients integrate an assessment of ESG factors into their process but do not tilt towards sustainable investments. The panel will discuss this issue and the likely future trends in ESG investment including how ESG fits in with the Mega trends defined by the PRI or WEF.

People with savings want to earn a decent return without running too much risk. Some have saved out of their earnings, some have built up capital in a business which they sell, some have inherited some money. None of them want to throw it away. In an era of ultra-low interest rates just putting it in a bank means the value of your capital goes down each year, as prices are rising faster than the return on a deposit. That’s why many conclude they do need to take some more risk, to own some shares and bonds that offer a higher income but can also go down in value.
Investment managers need to maximise return for a given level of risk, and need to construct portfolios so not everything goes down at the same time if things do go wrong. This talk will examine how you spread your risks, and argues that over the longer term buying a portfolio of shares usually delivers a return above inflation, with a rising income from increasing dividends. Managers also are able to choose from a range of different countries with different currencies for their shares, and to look at the opportunities in commercial property as well. That can help find the right mix of return and risks.
