  • Morningstar Executive Forum Recorded: Oct 21 2021 69 mins
    Bryana Lee, Chris Fidler, Dustyn Lanz, Jon Hale and Moderator Ian Tam
    Is Sustainable Investing Growing Responsibly?

    At the end of the second quarter of 2021, sustainable assets (excluding fund of funds) hit $26 billion in assets under management, a quarter-over-quarter growth rate of 22% and a year-over-year growth rate of 130%. As Canadian fund companies continue to ramp up their marketing and product efforts in this space, investors are taking the opportunity to grow their money in line with their values. Curiously, aside from the core regulation that a fund’s prospectus should not mislead investors, there is yet to be formal regulation on the disclosures of ESG-related fund practices in Canada. Are investors getting what they think they’re buying? That’s the question we are looking to answer in our latest Executive forum, where are panelists will also address:

    • Are Canada’s fund companies doing a good job in the sustainable investment space spite of a lack of explicit standards around investment products?
    • When can we use ESG Risk as a measure of a fund’s approach, and when does it not make sense?
    • How prevalent is greenwashing amongst Canada’s fund companies?

    Panelists:
    • Bryana Lee, legal counsel, Ontario Securities Commission
    • Chris Fidler, senior director, global industry standards, CFA Institute
    • Dustyn Lanz, CEO, RIA Canada
    • Jon Hale, director, sustainability research, Morningstar

    Investors entered 2021 with high hopes that the pandemic was on a downward trend and economic normalization was on the horizon.

  • Active Share - Context is Everything Recorded: Sep 28 2021 31 mins
    Matias Möttölä & Mathieu Caquineau, Morningstar
    Active share is a measure of the difference between a portfolio and a benchmark. In researching funds within Morningstar’s manager research team, it’s become evident to us that active share can be a useful tool in identifying a manager’s style and appetite for active risk, but only when considered in the context of the market in which the fund invests.

    In this webinar and in contrast to previous active-share literature, we take a broad look across Morningstar Categories to understand similarities and differences between their levels of active share. The 43 categories included in the study that this webinar is based on span Asian and European single-country markets and regional categories, as well as global developed and emerging markets.

  • 2021 Global Liquid Alternatives Landscape Recorded: Jul 28 2021 31 mins
    Francesco Paganelli & Erol Alitovski, Senior Manager Research Analysts, Morningstar
    Liquid alternative funds are still relatively young, but they still had $500 billion in assets globally as of April 30, 2021, according to Morningstar data. Investors, however, still lack awareness of these funds' challenges and risks, and often fail to form realistic expectations for them. Chasing good and fleeing poor performance chasing has been rampant, causing wild swings in asset flows among funds and in and out of the asset class.

    Alternative strategies still can play a role to play in investors' portfolios, but they need to better understand their potential benefits. In this webinar, you will learn about the key learnings of our '2021 Global Liquid Alternatives Landscape'-analysis and we explain some of the reasons for liquid alternative strategies' recent performance challenges.

  • Building a 100% fee only practice in India Recorded: Jul 15 2021 63 mins
    Srikanth Bhagavat, Hexagon
    While paying a fee for advice is still not prevalent in India, the trend is changing.

    With the regulatory push towards advisory, distributors are realising that they need to adapt their business models and charge fee by showcasing their value add.

    But are clients willing to pay fee?
    How can advisers convince clients to pay fee?
    How to show your value add?
    Is it possible to sustain an advisory practice solely by charging fee from clients?

    To answer these questions, Srikanth Bhagavat, Managing Director & Principal Advisor of Hexagon Wealth, will join us for an interactive webinar on July 15, 2021 at 4 pm. He will share how he is transitioning to a 100% fee-only practice. So do not miss this chance to interact with him.
