We would be delighted if you could join Schroder’s Asian Multi-Asset investment experts Mr. Pang Kin Weng & Mr. Reginald Tan, as they discuss the future landscape for multi-asset investing in 2021 and their insights on the following:
1. Income Investing is back! Interest rates to stay lower for longer.
2. Are Asian equities & bonds still attractive? Our picks for the best opportunities and how investors can avoid big drawdowns in these unprecedented times
3. The dos and don’ts of investing in a crisis: We’ll explain why investors need to tread carefully and adopt strategies that are flexible & risk-focused to navigate a rapidly-changing world
Kin Weng & Reginald will also field questions at the end of their presentation.
The US officially left the Paris agreement at the same time as China. Meanwhile, the EU is full steam ahead on a number of sustainable initiatives, and both Korea and Japan have announced targets to be net-zero by 2050. In this webcast we will discuss the implications of global commitments and regulation on the sustainable finance landscape now that the Presidential election has take place.
Also, where does the US go from here? How does a change in administration potentially impact policy in the US? Does the DOL’s final rule on ESG in ERISA plans really put a cold shower on sustainable investing in the US?
Finally, we look at the findings from our own Investor Survey where we find that alignment to values and regulatory pressure continue to influence investor behavior globally.
