  • Morningstar’s Q3 2021 US Stock Market Outlook Webinar – Asia Edition Jul 8 2021 2:00 am UTC 75 mins

    Morningstar’s Q3 2021 US Stock Market Outlook: Time to Trade Up in Quality

    Stock prices are high, interest rates are low, and corporate credit spreads are tight. Is there anything left that’s undervalued? With the equity markets trading near record levels, will stocks continue to march ever higher? Or will the Fed take away the punch bowl? Following the rotation into value stocks thus far this year, are equity valuations of companies with Wide Economic Moats still being left behind?

    As the pandemic continues to abate, the outlook for the U.S. economy remains robust and we project U.S. real GDP growth of 6.0% in 2021, 4.6% in 2022, and 3.4% in 2023. This aggressive growth is enabled by economic normalization as consumer spending shifts back to services from goods. However, inflation has reared its ugly head.

    I'd like to personally invite you to join our webinar, taking place on Thursday, July 8 at 10:00 a.m. HKT / 11:00 a.m. JST, to learn why we think inflation will subside later this year and to help you understand current market dynamics and identify pockets of opportunity! You will also hear more details on our ESG Risk Rating Assessment in partnership with Sustainalytics.

    In this continuation of our popular quarterly Market Outlook series, we’ll cover:
    • Key valuation context that will help you explain the stock market outlook to your clients
    • Provide an update regarding our revised outlook for the U.S. economy and inflation
    • Review content enhancements we are implementing to include Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues into our analysis
  • Ready for Take-Off: An Outlook for European Airline Companies Post-Covid-19 Jul 7 2021 8:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Joachim Kotze, European Aerospace and Defense Analyst, Morningstar
    Joachim will delve into the impact that Covid-induced travel restrictions has had on the sector, followed by an outlook for the short-term recovery and longer-term prospects. He will also contrast the business models and divergent prospects for legacy network carriers compared to the low-cost carriers and share his best ideas. Morningstar believes that low-cost carriers will continue to take market share from legacy carriers on intra-European routes, with Wizz Air offering the most attractive growth outlook.

    In the webinar, Joachim will share his views on:

    • Pre-Covid trends in the airline sector
    • The impact of Covid on industry balance sheets and business models
    • A temperature check of where the industry is in the recovery process
    • A comparison between the outlook for legacy carriers versus low-cost carriers
    • Our top picks in the industry

  • Morningstar ESG Conclave - Session 2 - Why ESG is here to stay Recorded: Jun 24 2021 36 mins
    Hortense Bioy, Morningstar
    Over the past few years, there has been a paradigm shift in how ESG is being perceived. It has
    evolved from an exclusionary form of investing to a much more visionary and inclusive outlook.
    ESG investing does not propose being good for goodness’s sake, it advocates being good in order to
    become rich. It gravitates towards higher quality companies with a stronger balance sheet,
    companies that are run better and operate more efficiently.
    As investors accelerate into sustainable investments, what must they be aware of and what
    misconceptions must be laid to rest?

  • Morningstar ESG Conclave - Session 3 - The ESG Regulatory Journey Recorded: Jun 24 2021 34 mins
    Andy Pettit, Morningstar
    Surging investor appetite for sustainable investments means that rules on disclosure will become
    increasingly important.
    This year, the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation came into effect. New European rules
    on climate and other sustainable-finance issues require asset managers to disclose the potential
    harm their investments could do to the environment and society. The Biden Administration will also give expanded attention and regulation when it comes to environmental, social and governance
    issues at American businesses.
    What are the implications and what can we expect going ahead?

  • Morningstar ESG Conclave - Session 4 - Is India ready for ESG? Recorded: Jun 24 2021 42 mins
    Navneet Munot, HDFC AMC / Nilesh Shah, Kotak AMC / Nimish Shah, Waterfield Advisors
    The coronavirus has splintered the world economy, exposing social responsibility and governance
    fault lines across continents. This is a crisis unlike anything we’ve seen. Consequently, social and
    governance elements are going to be more important when it comes to looking for investing
    opportunities. How is the ESG investing landscape evolving in India?
    With no standardized definition of ESG criteria, they are often adjusted depending on the
    perception of asset management companies. Firms also develop their own methodology to assign
    ESG ratings.
    A look at the challenges and opportunities.
  • Global Thematic Funds Landscape - Europe & Asia View Recorded: Jun 24 2021 32 mins
    Kenneth Lamont, Senior Analyst, Manager Research, Passive Strategies
    Thematic funds have been one of the big winners to emerge from the global pandemic, with many posting eye-catching returns over the period. The global market for these funds, which attempt to harness secular growth themes ranging from artificial intelligence to cannabis, has expanded rapidly in size and breadth.

    Since publishing the first installment of the 'Global Thematic Funds Landscape'-research in early 2020, the supply of these niche and often gimmicky funds from asset managers has increased, as has the demand for clarity and guidance from investors. In this webinar, we focus on the outcomes of the 2nd edition of this paper and learn about key trends in the global thematic funds landscape and share best practices for choosing from this ever-expanding universe.

  • Turn Risk Compliance Into Client Engagement Recorded: Jun 22 2021 40 mins
    Matthew Radgowski Head of Client Solutions, Aron Szapiro Head of Policy Research, Jason Stipp Director of Product Management
    Increasing regulations are putting new explicit and implicit requirements on financial advisors to deliver best interest advice and document how they’ve done so. This entails not only understanding the client’s current accounts, including 401(k) plan lineups and services in more detail but also aligning portfolios more tightly to client goals and risk profiles.
    While these new requirements may add steps to the advisor’s workflow, with the right tools, approach and processes, they can also provide an opportunity to add value for clients and build trust by demonstrating that you fully understand their current accounts, risk comfort, and financial goals.

    This webinar is perfect for advisors and compliance professionals.

    Matthew Radgowski, Head of Client Solutions, Advisor Segment

    Mr. P L Natarajan Iyer, CEO, Happyness Factory
    You have spent your entire career helping clients prepare for their retirement. But have you given a serious thought on who will take care of your business and clients when you take a backseat?

    When advisers do not plan for their own Business Succession, they put their clients as well as their family members at risk. By failing to plan your own retirement, many of you deprive your family members of reaping the benefits of the painstaking effort put in by you to build your business.

    Most Financial Professionals think of succession as an event. Rather, it is a process and needs to start early. But how to go about it?

    Join us for an insightful webinar on How to Plan your Business Succession with Mr. P L Natarajan Iyer, CEO, Happyness Factory. He will share his thoughts and learnings on how advisers and mutual fund distributors should approach and plan their Business Succession.

    What you will learn:
    • Why is Business Succession Planning important?
    • Types of Business Succession Planning
    • How to recognize an Ideal Partner for Business Succession
    • When to start Business Succession Planning
    • Steps involved in Business Succession Planning
    • Continuity for Next Generation

  • Naviguer dans les défis et les possibilités du CFR - French Canada Edition Recorded: Jun 10 2021 34 mins
    Morningstar Canada
    Les Réformes orientées client (ROC) doivent entrer en vigueur le 31 décembre 2021. Non seulement les sociétés de conseils devront continuer à adapter leur modèle d’entreprise en conséquence, mais il faudra aussi qu’elles articulent rapidement les exigences des ROC autour des principes de connaissance du client (CVC), connaissance du produit (CVP), adéquation et conflits d’intérêts. Bien qu’elles apportent un changement bienvenu du point de vue des investisseurs particuliers, ces exigences fondées en majeure partie sur des principes peuvent parfois prêter à diverses interprétations.

    Venez retrouver Patrice Nzigamasabo de Morningstar Canada, qui évoquera en compagnie de Sophie Jean, de l’Autorité des marchés financiers, la manière dont les firmes peuvent naviguer les ROC dans le respect des principes de CVC, de CVP et d’adéquation, et de ceux liés aux conflits d’intérêts.

    In this webinar, we will cover:
    • How to navigate through the risk model in Morningstar Direct
    • Deep dive on how our risk model can help you answer questions such as “Where is my portfolio’s alpha coming from?” and “How does a particular portfolio hold up under stress?”

    The Morningstar Global Equity Risk Model helps you assess the amount of risk in a fund or model portfolio by tracking a stock’s underlying economic exposure to 37 factors, including six unique to Morningstar. This model shows how a variety of market conditions could affect a portfolio. The factor exposures in the model uncover underlying revenue drivers to find a stock’s true sources of returns. Our model uses the exposures to go beyond standard models to project a stock or stock portfolio’s vulnerability to extreme market events.

    Attending this webinar will give you a free trial of advance risk model components of custom scenario’s factor attribution and risk decomposition.
