UK s/mid-caps: down, but not out

After an extraordinary few months, markets seem to be pausing for thought. But what do recent events mean for the long-term prospects of UK small- and medium-sized businesses? Where are the opportunities and relative ‘safe havens’ now? And to what extent is it important to take a step back and look at the bigger picture? Dan Nickols, manager of the Merian UK Smaller Companies Fund, and Richard Watts, manager of the Merian UK Mid Cap Fund, will address all these questions, discuss portfolio performance and activity, and answer any questions you might have. We hope you will be able to join them at 11:00 (London time) on Tuesday 19th May.

    Richard Buxton
    While members of the public may be getting increasingly used to having their temperatures checked as one of the many previously-unfamiliar rituals now associated with entering shops, restaurants and public spaces, quoted UK companies will be preparing themselves for equally keen interest in their vital statistics as they ready themselves for the second-quarter reporting season. Please join Richard Buxton at 11:00 (London time) on Tuesday 28th July for his regular webcast on the Merian UK Alpha Fund, when he will discuss this eagerly-awaited set of corporate results, what they might tell us about the health of the economy and businesses, and of course their implications for investors.

  • UK equities: in search of a destination Recorded: May 20 2020 49 mins
    Richard Buxton
    Travel-related businesses have been among the very worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with announcements of redundancies across the industry now a sadly familiar feature of the news agenda. Join Richard Buxton at 11:00 (London time) on Wednesday 20th May for his monthly update on the Merian UK Alpha Funds, when he will discuss why he believes that, for patient investors, the prospects for travel-related stocks may be more attractive than recent declines in share prices are suggesting. As usual, Richard will also share his latest thinking on the outlook for the economy and markets, fund performance, and portfolio activity.

    WE’D LIKE TO REMIND ALL LISTENERS THAT THIS WEBCAST IS INTENDED FOR EXISTING AND PROSPECTIVE PROFESSIONAL INVESTORS IN THE MERIAN UK ALPHA FUND. IT IS NOT INTENDED FOR MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA.

  • Unpicking the pandemic: unique insights from our China equity experts Recorded: Apr 9 2020 13 mins
    Vincent Che and Will Gold
    It is well known that the illness now referred to as COVID-19 was first identified in China’s Wuhan Province. While the pandemic has since swept around the world, leaving many of us in lockdown, signs are emerging that China is already in a position to begin relaxing some of the restrictions that were put in place in an effort to contain the spread of the virus. The present situation begs one huge question: what lessons can Western governments, citizens and investors learn from China’s experience?

    Through our unique partnership with the Hong Kong-based asset management arm of the Chinese insurance, finance and technology giant Ping An Group, we are pleased to present this recording of a recent interview with Ping An’s Vincent Che, manager of the Merian China Equity Fund, in which he shares some fascinating insights on the evolving situation.

  • The new era of “quarantine easing” Recorded: Mar 26 2020 47 mins
    Mark Nash and Nick Wall
    Mark Nash and Nick Wall of the Merian Global Investors multi-sector fixed income team have been highlighting perceived vulnerabilities in the global growth outlook and market structure for some time, leading them to take a more defensive stance in portfolios than many peers.

    Now, the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to rock global markets, has further accentuated such economic vulnerabilities. Questions of course remain: will we see widespread deployment of “helicopter” money? How far can central banks control government bond yields? Will US dollar strength persist? What might a peak in virus cases mean for markets? Is now the time to start reallocating to credit and other risk assets?

    Join our regular webinar to hear Mark and Nick’s thoughts on these questions, and more.
