  • Future-Proof Multi-Asset Strategies Recorded: Oct 28 2021 59 mins
    Glenn Gonzales (Obsidian Capital), Ulf Füllgraf (Alpha Centauri), Kevin Mahn (Hennion & Walsh) & Aymeric Forest (Abrdn)
    The global economy is set to expand 5.6 percent in 2021—its strongest post-recession pace in 80 years. As the ‘new normal’ materialises, previously held assumptions and understandings about asset allocation are being challenged, forcing allocators to rethink their investment strategies to ensure they can generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors.

    While portfolios were typically diversified by equity and bond splits, decreasing yields mean government bonds are becoming an increasingly risky option. To manage risk, asset allocators need to rethink the conventional concept of 60/40, and assume a more active approach to asset allocation, risk management and suitability profile.

    In this session, we’ll explore new approaches to asset allocation and give you the tools you need to future-proof your multi-asset solutions.

    Topics for discussion include:

    Should bonds still form part of a multi-asset approach?
    Integrating alternative assets
    Mitigating portfolio risk in the post-Covid world
    And more…

  • Private credit – flexible investing in a new era Recorded: Jun 16 2021 45 mins
    Simeon Willis, Craig MacDonald & Neil Odom-Haslett
    As we emerge from the Covid pandemic, uncertainty is likely to remain a feature of markets in the near-to-medium-term. What is clear, however, is that the disruption could give way to longer-term investment opportunities. Private credit, for instance, could be poised to benefit, especially as banks’ ability to extend new credit gets constrained by weakened balance sheets.

    In this session, we consider the pros and cons of an allocation to private credit and take a deeper dive into current opportunities in the sector.

  • Investing in China: ESG Matters Recorded: Mar 4 2021 65 mins
    Sir Douglas Flint, Donald Amstrad
    China opened its economy to the world 40 years ago. Now markets are opening up too, as global indices add China’s stocks and bonds. As a result, investors can take advantage of the massive opportunities China has to offer. However, many are nervous about the risks involved, especially around environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

    We are here to help. We have invested in China for over 30 years and ESG considerations have always been at the heart of our approach. Today, we are more optimistic than ever, as ESG standards improve and China commits to being carbon neutral.

    To find out more about China’s risks and opportunities, listen to our one-hour online seminar where we explore the case for investing in China’s growth story, with a focus on ESG.

    The event also offers a unique opportunity to hear from our Chairman Sir Douglas Flint. He has deep experience on the strategic factors that influence China. Sir Douglas is the UK Treasury’s special envoy for China’s Belt and Road Initiative and was HSBC Chairman from 2010 to 2017.
