US small caps' volatility & the global pandemic

We are living through a historical time of unprecedented market volatility with US small caps among the most volatile of asset classes, with traders and investors questioning how to make sense of the markets and develop a strategy for today and tomorrow.

- Will the roller coaster ride continue for US equity markets and small caps in particular?
- Is now the right time to stay invested or invest in US small caps?
- What tools and strategies can I use to help manage the ups and downs?

Leading global index provider FTSE Russell is joined by special guest Jefferies US Small & Mid Cap Equity Strategist Steven DeSanctis and index derivatives partners Cboe Global Markets and CME Group to examine the current state of the small cap equity market and practical strategies and tools for managing through unprecedented levels of market volatility.

The panel of speakers will cover a wide range of topics including:
- The current market environment for US small caps
- Historical perspective on US small cap performance in significant market downturns
- Practical investment and protection strategies for addressing market volatility

The panel will speak for 15-20 minutes and leave plenty of time for questions from webinar participants.

  • European listed real estate: Impact of the COVID-19 crisis Jul 22 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Lloyd Barton (Oxford Economics), Dilek Pekdemir (EPRA), Catherine Yoshimoto (FTSE Russell)
    FTSE Russell is joined by special guest Oxford Economics’ Head of global trade services, Lloyd Barton to examine the current and potential future state of the European listed real estate sector.

    During this webinar, Lloyd Barton (Oxford Economics) and Dilek Pekdemir (EPRA) will elaborate on the findings of a recently published research paper (download here:https://bit.ly/3iOZhQ0):

    • Why the sector is trading at a discount to net asset value (NAV)
    • Why investors tend to ascribe higher NAV premiums to listed real estate stocks with low leverage
    • Output losses will be significantly greater than during the global financial crisis over a one-year timeframe. This has negative implications for the performance of property assets that underpin listed real estate prices
    • The knock-on impact to employment and incomes from the crisis will also influence the near-term outlook for the performance of listed real estate companies with exposure to residential property.

    Speakers:
    • Guest expert: Lloyd Barton, Head of global trade services, Oxford Economics
    • Speaker: Dilek Pekdemir, PhD, Research manager, EPRA (European Public Real Estate Association)
    • Moderator: Catherine Yoshimoto, Director, Product management, FTSE Russell

    The broadening of central bank QE to credit has driven strong credit market returns, even if many challenges remain for policy-makers. FTSE Russell and ProShares are thinking about the Fed, rates and credit spreads. Talk to the experts to unravel what’s happening now and take a deeper look at rate hedged indexes and ETFs in this environment.

    A robust discussion on the fixed income markets will be followed by a look at how index construction can drive performance in different market scenarios. ProShares will discuss the ETFs that track these indexes and their potential value in the current market.

  • 2020 Russell US Indexes Reconstitution: Unlike any seen before? Recorded: Jun 25 2020 51 mins
    Jermal Chandler (Cboe Options Institute), Amy Whitelaw (BlackRock), Philip Lawlor and Catherine Yoshimoto (FTSE Russell)
    The story about a growing gap between the largest and smallest US stocks.

    The annual Russell US Indexes reconstitution, happening like clockwork every year in June, is a report card of sorts for the US equity markets. And with approximately $9Tn in investor assets tracking the Russell US Indexes, the event is closely watched by key market participants.

    The 2020 Russell US Indexes Reconstitution, which began with Rank Day May 8th and concludes June 26th, underscores a notable divergence between the large and small ends of the US equity market.

    In a year in which total US market capitalization decreased by 1%, the market cap of the 10 largest US companies increased by more than 23%. In fact, three companies (Microsoft, Apple & Amazon), surpassed $1Tn in size as of May 8th Rank Day.

    On the eve of its annual US index rebalance, FTSE Russell has gathered market participants to examine the upcoming event.
