Venture Capital: Investing in global market leaders of tomorrow

Disruption and technological innovations are creating opportunities in select businesses for private asset investors. But perhaps what makes a more meaningful difference is not the company itself, but the investment stream and expertise behind the venture. Steven Yang of Zurich-based Schroder Adveq, with Valentine Whittaker, Alternatives Director at Schroders, offer their views on how a best-in-class pursuit of the most prominent new wave tech ventures and sustainable return prospects can truly differentiate within this nuanced segment of the market in an age when traditional research, valuation models, and policy simply lead to noise and generic rhetoric.

Speaker Bio:

Steven Yang is the Head of the Adveq Technology program and in charge of Schroder Adveq’s investments in the US technology space from seed/early stage venture to buyout strategies. As part of Schroder Adveq’s global benchmarking practice he is also involved in Schroder Adveq’s Asian venture investments.

  • Trick or Treat? Sustainability Quarterly with Jessica Ground Oct 31 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jessica Ground, Head of Stewardship at Schroders, and team
    On this All Hallows' Eve edition of Schroders’ Sustainability Quarterly webinar, we look at ESG-indexing, and ESG within the Emerging Markets, both areas that can potentially offer tricks & treats.

    The combination of rising demand for index-based investment products and an increasing appetite for strategies based on ESG criteria has led to a sharp increase in ESG-branded products. We highlight a number of reasons why these simple, low-cost solutions may not provide either the financial or sustainability outcomes investors are likely to expect.

    EM have tended to exhibit greater volatility than developed markets. Less stringent regulation, rapidly changing demographics and evolving policy environments can add to the uncertainty for EM investors. These
    issues are less likely to impact better managed, more sustainably run companies, in our view.
  • Securitized Credit: A Timely Fixed Income Credit Alternative Recorded: Oct 16 2018 34 mins
    Jeff Williams, Fund Manager, Securitized Credit Team, Schroders
    As investors contemplate the lower return environment, the potential for rising interest rates and rich valuations, many rely on traditional fixed-income credit strategies, or leveraged loans, as a way to generate return or income. These markets have become crowded, and the crowds pushing into risk by the global liquidity glut are, in our view, concernedly complacent.
     
    Now is the time to avoid these very crowded parts of the market through an alternative that’s been here in place sight all along - Securitized Credit. In this webcast we will explore the broad range of alternatives, from defensive to opportunistic, that can be found in Securitized Credit and lending. We will also demonstrate how these traditional credit replacements can consist of a hybrid of private debt and public securities to provide an attractive return profile, and offer better diversification with the most commonly held portfolio allocations. 
  • Credit Insights with David Knutson Recorded: Oct 2 2018 40 mins
    David Knutson, CFA, Head of Credit, Americas, Schroders
    Schroders recently held its Quarterly Fixed Income Investment Forum, and for this webinar David Knutson will give a glimpse into this 3-day discussion by recapping several debates that went on, including the state of the USD, and inflation. He will also offer a research analyst's perspective on another current debate sparked by recent tweets - quarterly reporting.
  • Assessing the concentration risks in the Emerging Markets Recorded: Sep 26 2018 27 mins
    Michael O'Brien, Ph.D, and Derek Power, Schroders QEP team
    Emerging market equities remain an attractive area to find growth. While liquidity and FX remain powerful drivers of EM asset prices, for those with a longer-term view, we think the fundamentals are strong and there remains compelling alpha to be had across region, sector, and market cap. So where are we seeing value?

    Join Dr Michael O’Brien and Derek Power from Schroders QEP team as they look at the secular changes that are transforming this dynamic and diverse asset class -- and where they see opportunities.

    No one wants to vacation on a beach full of plastic. With more regions talking about banning some plastic items, what is the impact for the plastics supply chain, and end users. Meanwhile, as summer temperatures reach record highs, we will revisit our Schroders Climate Progress Dashboard a year on from launch and see how the thermostat is re-calibrating. Finally, as you pack up the car for your big summer trip, is there a residual risk that is not being captured within the auto loan industry, despite banks tighten up their consumer protection rules and processes?

  • Equity risk management: a ‘tail’ of two approaches Recorded: Jun 19 2018 32 mins
    Seth Finkelstein, CFA, Head of US Portfolio Solutions, and Julien Manhood, CFA, Solutions Manager
    We explore two approaches to managing equity risk, and why both should be carefully considered given today’s market levels:

    1.Strategic: Making an allocation to a drawdown-oriented risk-managed equity strategy designed to improve a total portfolio’s risk/return profile

    2.Tactical: Designing and implementing a strategy designed to limit acute short-term equity losses late in the cycle

    Seth Finkelstein, Head of US Portfolio Solutions, and Julien Manhood, Solutions Manager, outline the merits for such equity risk management strategies within the context of an institutional client’s portfolio.
