Alastair Gunn and Rhys Petheram, Co-managers of the Jupiter Distribution Fund Range
From Amazon to Bitcoin, and from populism to stranded assets, technological disruption has far-reaching consequences for Multi-Asset investors.
In this session, Alastair and Rhys will discuss how the shifting landscape of technology affects the companies in which they invest. In doing so, they will focus on whether equity and bond valuations accurately reflect the potential risks and opportunities, and which parts of the capital structure should be better placed to benefit.
