Corporate bonds: opportunity knocks for active investors?
As COVID-19 has forced many countries to place their economies in near shutdown, credit markets have felt the pain of falling earnings and near-term liquidity concerns. While we expect ratings downgrades and defaults to rise, we see significant opportunities across the global credit markets.
Join our fixed income fund managers and specialists, Martha Metcalf, Rick Rezek and Julie Mandell, in this live webinar, where they will share their views on global credit markets across investment grade and high yield, the risks and opportunities investors should consider and how they have adjusted their portfolios in this environment.

In this edition of the outlook on New China, brought to you in collaboration between Principal Asset Management Berhad and Schroders Investment Management Singapore Limited, our speakers will share insights on the following:-
1. How will the New China plan to further strengthen its domestic economy, while continuing to grow China's importance internationally? As ties between the world’s superpowers (US and China) continue to loosen, we look at the implications for investors and how we can navigate investments into the future; and
2. As the New China continues to advance on the world stage, what are the exciting investment opportunities arising, driven by innovation, digitalisation, research and development, to the reshoring and diversification of supply chains, to capital market liberalisation. Our speakers will give insights on how these moves benefit its Asian counterparts especially Hong Kong and Taiwan and ultimately translating into benefits of investors.

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.
