Mid-year markets review and outlook

Mid-year markets review and outlook web conference with Mark Burgess, Jim Cielinski and Leigh Harrison – Friday 5 July, 9.00am, UK time

Equities have enjoyed strong performance since the beginning of 2013 but more recently the rally has lost momentum as investors have become concerned that the US Federal Reserve could start to taper its quantitative easing (QE) programme. Core sovereign bonds have also performed poorly in recent weeks, again reflecting worries that the Fed is getting ready to scale back its bond-buying programme.

Join Threadneedle’s CIO Mark Burgess, Head of Fixed Income Jim Cielinski and Head of Equities Leigh Harrison as they discuss topics including:

- The likely implications of QE tapering
- The global impact of the recent stimulus measures announced by the Japanese authorities (‘Abenomics’)
- The outlook for the major asset classes for the remainder of the year and into 2014

Participants will also be able to submit questions at the registration stage or during the call.

  • American Absolute Alpha Fund: Capturing alpha in a volatile market Recorded: Jul 15 2015 42 mins
    Neil Robson, Ashish Kochar and Amit Kumar
    Capturing alpha in a volatile market – US long/short equity

    A sharpened focus on macroeconomic and geopolitical concerns has driven higher market volatility, as US investors weigh issues including interest rate rises, dollar strength, slowing in China and the unfolding Greek debt crisis. Our long/ short equity approach seeks to capitalise on the enhanced opportunities presented by these volatile conditions, while targeting positive absolute returns in both rising and falling markets.

    Join fund managers Neil Robson and Ashish Kochar and analyst Amit Kumar as they discuss topics including:

    - How current market conditions can benefit a long/short portfolio
    - The key features of a long/short approach
    - Recent performance and portfolio positioning

  • Mid-year markets review and outlook Recorded: Jun 8 2015 44 mins
    Mark Burgess, Colin Moore and Jim Cielinski
    Back in 2013 we said that financial markets would face a long and at sometimes challenging road to normalisation. That has certainly proved to be the case as none of the major central banks have raised interest rates and the likes of Europe and Japan have had to follow the US by implementing their own QE programmes. Nonetheless, one of the most important themes in markets so far this year has been the rise in bond yields from very low levels as markets begin to think about the first US interest rate rise or what is sometimes called ‘lift off’ day.

    Join our CIO for EMEA Mark Burgess, Global Head of Fixed Income Jim Cielinski and Global CIO Colin Moore as they discuss topics including:

    - What are the likely impacts of higher bond yields on equity markets?
    - At what point are core government bonds likely to become attractive again?
    - What are the prospects for financial markets over the remainder of this year and into 2016?

  • US equities - Prospects for the US stock market in a world of policy divergence Recorded: May 13 2015 33 mins
    Diane Sobin
    The US remains the engine of global economic growth and home to some of the world’s most innovative and dynamic companies. The strength of the US economy has meant that the US Federal Reserve is likely to be the first of the major developed world central banks to start normalising policy; by contrast, Europe and Japan are implementing QE to support growth. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the US dollar has performed very well in this environment.

    Join Diane Sobin, Head of US Equities, EMEA at Columbia Threadneedle Investments as she discusses topics including:

    - Effects we may see from an increase in interest rates
    - Prospects for corporate earnings over 2015 and into 2016
    - Updates on key strategies and current portfolio positioning

  • Global Opportunities Bond Fund Recorded: Mar 4 2015 31 mins
    Martin Harvey
    Government bond yields around the world remain very low, and the recent announcement of full-blown QE by the ECB suggests that the search for yield is likely to continue. In the US and UK, expectations were that interest rates would rise this year, although the global disinflationary trend means that there is no need for central banks to act quickly. In credit markets, the outsized excess returns that have characterised the past few years may now be over, but there are still plenty of opportunities to generate alpha. Nonetheless, it is vital that investors employ the largest possible toolkit when investing in bond markets, in order to maximise the likelihood of a favourable investment outcome.

    Join Threadneedle’s Fund Manager Martin Harvey as he discuss topics including:

    - The importance of a diversified investment approach, spanning rate strategies, currencies, asset allocation and security selection
    - Current portfolio themes
    - The outlook for fixed income markets over the remainder of 2015

  • UK Equities Recorded: Feb 11 2015 48 mins
    Chris Kinder and Richard Colwell
    2015 is likely to be an important year for UK equities. The forthcoming general election is one potential source of volatility, given the very different economic policies of the two leading parties. Investors will also have to get to grips with the recent fall in energy prices and what it means for the FTSE, given the UK market’s tilt towards resource-related areas such as oil & gas and mining. Balanced against this is the FTSE’s dividend yield, which remains very attractive in a global context, and the positive impact of lower energy prices on the industrial and consumer-related sectors.

    Join UK equity fund managers Chris Kinder and Richard Colwell as they discuss topics including:

    - Potential opportunities in an environment where stock market volatility is likely to pick up from low levels.
    - The importance of selecting companies that are focused on delivering positive total returns to shareholders in what is still a low-growth world.
    - Current positioning and the ability of our portfolios to perform irrespective of the broader moves in the FTSE.

    Online participants may submit questions to Chris and Richard at the registration stage or during the web conference.

  • 2015 Outlook Recorded: Dec 10 2014 52 mins
    Mark Burgess, David Oliphant and Don Jordison
    A year ago we thought that financial markets would face a long and at times challenging road to normalisation. That has certainly proved to be the case this year as volatility returned to equity markets in the latter part of 2014 amid fears that economic growth in 2015 could disappoint. Meanwhile core sovereign bond yields have remained low despite expectations that the withdrawal of quantitative easing in the US would send Treasury prices lower and yields higher. What is 2015 likely to have in store for investors?

    Join our Chief Investment Officer Mark Burgess, Head of Investment Grade Credit David Oliphant, and Managing Director of Threadneedle Property Investments Don Jordison as they discuss topics including:

    - The economic policy challenges in the developed world, and the likely implications for risk assets such as equities
    - The outlook for sovereign and corporate credit markets
    - The appeal of assets with an attractive real yield in a low interest rate, low growth environment

    Online participants will be able to submit questions to Mark, David and Don during the web conference.

  • Global Opportunities Bond – Three-year anniversary Recorded: Oct 23 2014 44 mins
    James Waters and Martin Harvey
    Against expectations, core government yields have rallied this year, despite the widely-held view that the winding down of quantitative easing in the US would lead to higher yields and lower prices. In credit markets, spreads have narrowed over the past few years, supported by monetary policy conditions and a benign economic environment. In high yield, there have been some signs of indigestion recently. The outsized excess returns from credit markets over the past few years may now be over, but there are still plenty of opportunities to generate alpha. However, it’s critical that investors employ the largest possible toolkit when investing in bond markets, in order to maximise the likelihood of a favourable investment outcome.

    Please note: Jim Cielinski is no longer able to attend this Web Conference so we will now be joined by James Waters, client portfolio manager on the fixed income team as well as fund manager Martin Harvey to discuss the following topics:

    •The importance of a diversified investment approach, spanning interest rate strategies, currencies, asset allocation and security selection
    •The benefits of not being too large to add value when selecting individual bonds
    •Current portfolio themes
    •The outlook for bond markets for the remainder of the year and into 2015

    Online participants will be able to submit questions during the web conference.

  • US Equities Recorded: Jul 24 2014 41 mins
    Diane Sobin and Nadia Grant
    Threadneedle Investments has recently completed the rebuilding of its US equities team. With the addition of three highly respected analysts, Threadneedle now offers its most experienced US equities capability. Please join Threadneedle’s Head of US Equities Diane Sobin and Fund Manager Nadia Grant as they discuss topics including:

    •US equities team
    •Highlights of 2014 so far
    •Current portfolio themes and positioning

    Online participants can submit questions at any time during the web conference.
  • Mid-year markets review and outlook Recorded: Jul 4 2014 60 mins
    Mark Burgess, Jim Cielinski and Leigh Harrison
    So far, 2014 has seen modest gains for developed equity markets while emerging debt and equity markets have stabilised after a challenging period at the beginning of the year. However, perhaps the big surprise of 2014 so far has been the resilience of core government bonds, as yields have trended lower despite the tapering of the US Federal Reserve’s bond-buying programme. More recently, deflation has been a concern in Europe, but the European Central Bank has responded by implementing unusual policy measures, including negative deposit rates.

    Join Threadneedle’s CIO Mark Burgess, Head of Fixed Income Jim Cielinski and Head of Equities Leigh Harrison as they discuss subjects including:

    •How will bonds react to the normalisation of policy in the US? Are lower yields the new normal?
    •Will corporate profits drive equity markets higher?
    •How will emerging markets respond to the potential end of quantitative easing in the US later this year?

    Participants will also be able to submit questions at the registration stage or during the call.
  • Global Equity Income Recorded: Jun 26 2014 39 mins
    Stephen Thornber
    Join fund manager Stephen Thornber as he provides an update on Threadneedle’s global equity income strategy and the outlook for the remainder of the year.

    Stephen will also discuss other topics including:

    •Current portfolio themes and positioning
    •The recent rotation in equity markets and some of the opportunities that this has created for long-term investors
    •The importance of global equity income investing as an investment style in its own right

    Clients participating via the web may submit questions to Stephen at any time during the conference.
  • European High Yield Recorded: May 22 2014 33 mins
    Barrie Whitman
    European high yield debt has performed strongly in recent years, aided by the demand for income, improved credit fundamentals and low levels of default. Additionally, the shorter duration characteristics of high yield have proved supportive in an environment where core government bond yields have risen (and are expected to continue to normalise). But what can investors expect in 2014?

    Join Barrie Whitman, Head of the High Yield Team at Threadneedle, as he discusses topics including:

    • Recent developments in the high yield sector
    • Current portfolio themes and positioning
    • The outlook for the remainder of the year

    Online participants will be able to submit questions during the web conference.
  • European Equities: Core vs Periphery Recorded: Mar 28 2014 30 mins
    Dan Ison and Ann Steele
    The Economic growth outlook in Europe is improving; peripheral economies such as Ireland are performing strongly, and even countries that have suffered very badly in the financial crisis, such a Spain, now appear to be on the road to recovery. In the core of the Eurozone, Germany continues to see reasonable rates of growth, albeit without the increase in real wages that would have to assuage deflation concerns. French macroeconomic data releases have been largely disappointing in 2014 so far, although the consensus still expects the economy to expand a little this year.

    Join fund managers Dan Ison and Ann Steele as they discuss topics including:

    - Is the core/periphery distinction still relevant?
    - What are the remaining risks for investors in Europe?
    - Current portfolio themes and positioning

    Participants will be able to submit question at the registration stage or during the call.
  • Global Equity Income Recorded: Feb 26 2014 36 mins
    Stephen Thornber
    Join fund manager Stephen Thornber as he provides an update on the recent performance of Threadneedle’s global equity income strategy and discusses how he managed to outperform a stellar rise in equity markets last year. Stephen will also discuss other topics including:

    •The impact of rising interest rates on dividend paying stocks
    •The outlook for 2014 and how this is likely to influence portfolio construction
    •Current portfolio themes, such as defensive growth and why he prefers diversified financials to banks

    Clients participating via the web may submit questions to Stephen at any time during the conference.
  • UK Equity Income Recorded: Jan 31 2014 45 mins
    Richard Colwell
    Equity income has proved to be one of the most enduring equity investment strategies; crucially, investors benefit from the potential of share price growth, as well as attractive yields (and therefore some downside protection) when markets are volatile. Moreover, in markets such as the UK, it is well known that it is reinvested dividend income (rather than capital growth) that is the primary driver of long-term stock market returns. As such, finding stocks with sustainable dividends and the ability to grow the dividend over time is vitally important for any successful equity income strategy.

    Join Fund Manager Richard Colwell as he discusses topics including:

    • The characteristics of good income stocks
    • Current portfolio themes and positioning
    • The outlook for the UK equity income sector in 2014 and beyond

    Clients participating via the web may submit questions to Richard at any time during the conference.
  • 2014 Outlook Recorded: Dec 6 2013 58 mins
    Mark Burgess, Jim Cielinski and William Davies
    Aside from the notable exception of emerging markets, 2013 was a good year for most risk assets as central bank liquidity continued to support equity markets around the globe. Meanwhile, in bond markets, fears of a re-run of 1994’s bear market proved wide of the mark, aided in part by the Fed’s surprise decision not to taper QE in September. Threadneedle’s CIO Mark Burgess, Head of Fixed Income Jim Cielinski and Deputy Head of Equities William Davies assess the prospects for 2014 and outline the opportunities and challenges for active investors as markets face the long and uncertain road towards policy normalisation.

    Please join Mark, Jim and William as they look forward to 2014 and discuss topics such as:

    - Key investment themes
    - The most likely scenario for financial markets in 2014 as well as other outcomes
    - Positive and negative drivers for the major asset classes

    Participants will also be able to submit questions at the registration stage or during the call.

    Stephen Thornber
    Join fund manager Stephen Thornber as he provides an update on the recent performance of Threadneedle’s global equity income strategy and discusses how rising bond yields are likely to affect higher yielding stocks. Stephen will also discuss other topics including:

    • The importance of a balanced income portfolio, with a blend of compounders, fixed and financial asset plays, secular growers and cyclicals
    • Current portfolio themes, such as defensive growth and the US shale energy revolution
    • The impact of the Federal’s Reserve decision not to taper its quantitative easing programme in September
    • The outlook for the remainder of the year and into 2014

  • UK Absolute Alpha Fund 3-year anniversary Recorded: Oct 31 2013 44 mins
    Mark Westwood and Chris Kinder
    September marked the three-year anniversary of the launch of the UK Absolute Alpha Fund. Over that period, UK equities have staged a decent rally, aided by the abundant liquidity provided by quantitative easing, the cleaning up of corporate balance sheets (which remain in better shape than those of many governments) and more recently the return of large-scale M&A (Vodafone/Verizon). But what do the next three years hold in store? And will we finally see large institutional investors move out of ‘return-less risk assets’ (such as core sovereigns) and back into equities, which offer yield and capital growth potential?
  • Commodities update Recorded: Oct 18 2013 31 mins
    Daniel Belchers
    Commodities have underperformed other risk assets in 2013 as they have faced a combination of concerns relating to slower Chinese economic growth, worries over excess supply in several markets, and fears that the eventual withdrawal of quantitative easing (QE) in the US could result in a stronger dollar. More recently, sentiment towards commodities has improved somewhat as Chinese economic sentiment indicators have rallied while the Federal Reserve surprised investors by not announcing some tapering of QE in September, putting downward pressure on the dollar.

    Join fund manager Daniel Belchers as he discusses topics including:
    - Recent developments within the commodities space
    - Current portfolio themes and positioning
    - The outlook for commodities for the remainder of the year and into 2014

  • European Select Fund 5-year anniversary web conference Recorded: Jul 16 2013 33 mins
    David Dudding
    This summer marks the fifth anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the beginning of the ensuing worldwide credit crunch which pushed the global financial system to breaking point.

    It is hard to imagine a more testing and unpredictable environment in which to deliver consistent outperformance, given all that has happened over the past five years, and yet that is exactly what David Dudding has delivered since he took over the management of the European Select Fund in July 2008.

    Join David as he discusses topics including:

    - Current portfolio themes and ideas
    - The importance of a ‘get rich slow’ approach to portfolio management in a low growth, low-return world
    - The outlook for European equities remainder of 2013 and into 2014

    Participants will also be able to submit questions at the registration stage or during the call.
