Presented by

About this talk

With the Federal Reserve almost certain to cut interest rates later this year, investors who want a steady yield are being forced to turn away from government bonds and look at other options. Gone are the days when the 10-year US Treasury paid you 7%, instead, the 10-year German Bund is being auctioned for -0.24%. In this low yield environment, investors are being forced to other parts of the market however, this presents significant risks so late in the cycle. This session explores some new ways investors can approach the never-ending search for a greater risk-return profile. Moderator: Jeffrey Sacks, Citi Private Bank, Head - EMEA Investment Strategy Panellists: Henry Cobbe, Head of Research, Elston Consulting Paul Syms, Head of EMEA ETF Fixed Income Product Management, Invesco Stephen Isaacs, Chairman of the Investment Committee, Alvine Capital
