  • Fixed income investing in an uncertain world Recorded: Nov 13 2018 37 mins
    Gordon Harding
    After a long period of calm in financial markets, 2018 has seen a significant increase in volatility. Bond yields and credit spread have risen, whilst uncertainty around global trade has increased, several emerging markets have been under the spotlight and political risk in the Eurozone has re-emerged. This has all proven a very challenging backdrop for fixed income strategies. In this context, Gordon Harding, Investment Specialist at UBS Asset management will outline current opportunities and discuss how the new UBS Global Strategic Bond Fund provides a solution to fixed income investing in this more uncertain environment.

    China has dominated discussions about investing in emerging markets over the past couple of years. While important to the future of emerging market investing, China alone is not the only reason. Opportunities emanate from a broad range of countries and sectors.

    On May 15, join UBS Asset Management's Barry Gill, Head of Active Equities, and Emerging Markets Equities Portfolio Managers, Urs Antonioli and Gabriel Csendes, for a live webinar where they will discuss:
    • Why emerging markets remain attractive and are outperforming developed markets
    • Geopolitical and macroeconomic risks
    • Global issues affecting key emerging market countries, and opportunities for institutional investors in Russia, Brazil, Mexico and Central Europe
  • Navigating the risks and opportunities for global markets in 2018 Recorded: May 2 2018 51 mins
    UBS Asset Management
    Some of the biggest risks to market performance in 2018 are accelerating inflation and more aggressive monetary tightening, increased protectionism, and a sharp economic slowdown in China. In the first few months of the year, there have been developments related to these risks, with rising US Treasury yields and trade tensions with China contributing to unsettled markets.

    On May 2, join UBS Asset Management's Erin Browne, Head of Asset Allocation Investment Solutions, and Geoffrey Wong, Head of Emerging Markets and Asia-Pacific Equities, for a special webinar where they will discuss their current outlook for markets and asset allocation in the coming months.

    Urs Antonioli, Head of EM EMEA & Latin America Equities, Managing Director
    The upcycle for EM equities should continue over the next few years - a cycle which looks set to highlight the changing face of EM. Urs will walk through the new dynamic, away from commodities increasingly toward domestic drivers. He will then explain the success behind his team's emerging markets fund, the product of careful bottom-up selection based on fundamental "boots on the ground" research.
