    While it was once country and region-specific ideas that held sway as the first consideration for professional investors, today it is just as likely they will use one-stop shop global equity funds for major market exposure. But with such a wide variety of ways of running money and selecting from a vast equity universe, what questions do you need to ask when selecting a global fund?
    Should thematic investing play a part, and how does a fund manager prioritise between growth and value plays? With so much to consider, make sure you join host Mark Preskett CFA, Portfolio Manager, Morningstar as he debates the options for Equity Allocation with David Dudding, Senior Portfolio Manager, Columbia Threadneedle and Stephen Yiu CFA, Chief Investment Officer, Lead Fund Manager, Blue Whale Capital.

    Is regional or country specific asset allocation a thing of the past?

    Where are the natural biases for global fund managers, and how can you differentiate yourself?

  • HOT TOPIC Innovating asset management fees: A debate with leading selectors Recorded: Jul 22 2021 62 mins
    Lee Robertson, Mark Dampier, Richard Philbin, JB Beckett
    The cost of active funds continues to be a contentious area, but while increased competition – particularly from passives – and the FCA’s Assessment of Value have all made a difference, pricing disruption is still welcomed.
    So, what needs to change, and who’s bringing fresh ideas to the table?

    - When looking at OCF / TER, why is there not a uniform way to price / show fees to clients?
    - Are performance fees really such a bad idea?
    - What difference has the FCA’s Assessment of Value made?
    - Are contingent fees suitable for retail investments? For example, fulcrums and symmetrical charges.
    - Why has the funds industry done such a bad job at conveying and communicating costs and value?

    Hear from our expert selectors as they answer all this and your questions live throughout.
