About this talk

CAN ASIA OFFER INVESTORS DIVERSIFICATION AT A TIME OF ECONOMIC HARDSHIP? Rahul Chadha, Chief Investment Officer at Mirae Asset Global Investments (Hong Kong) Rahul will explain that as aftershocks of the pandemic - labour shortages, supply disruptions along with geopolitical tensions - have caused an unforeseen spike in inflation, central banks, led by US Federal Reserve, are showing a solid resolve to control this inflationary spike. Can Asian markets, underappreciated and under owned, offer investors diversification? In his presentation, Rahul Chadha will provide an overview of the macroeconomic landscape and highlight potential opportunities across Asia to generate alpha despite the global economic slowdown and the stagflationary headwinds. EM EQUITIES - A SWEET SPOT FOR QUANTS Arup Datta, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Quantitative Equity, Mackenzie Investments Arup will discuss the specific reasons why EM equities plays to the strength of strategies applying a quantitative approach and also why EM equities provides the best opportunities for alpha potential for quant managers. Also will discuss the advantages applying a ‘core’ approach balancing exposures across ‘quality’, ‘revisions’ and ‘value’ super factor buckets. Arup will also discuss: • Why daily trading, managing transaction costs and limiting capacity are all key in EM Equities • How ‘Human Overlay’ decisions can add value in periods of market dislocation • The integration of ESG factors into quant models from an alpha perspective and from a constraint/optimisation perspective
