Responsible Investor Webinar – ESG fund labelling: ‘friend or foe’ of the sustainability transition?
In this webinar we are bringing together a panel of standard-setting authorities and investment experts to discuss fund labels’ criteria, the pros and cons of standardizing labels vs encouraging divergence on the grounds that in SI there is no one-size-fits-all, and what this all means for the ultimate objective of a sustainable transition.
Fixed income markets started the new year with a sharp upsurge in yields, as traders took up their rate-hike expectations another notch, sending stocks and bonds into a simultaneous tailspin. At the same time, long-term inflation expectations remained surprisingly stable, despite consumer prices in Europe and the US growing at their fastest rates in almost three or four decades, respectively. With tighter monetary-policy conditions now firmly priced, the risk has shifted toward central banks not delivering what is expected.
Join Christoph Schon in this webinar to hear how all this affects the risk of global multi-asset class portfolios.
In this webinar you learn which key risk management trends the industry can expect to see over the next 12 months and how firms can adapt to these developments.
Join our full-year and fourth-quarter risk review of equity markets in 2021, where we will highlight the (literal) ups and downs of volatility during the year. We will examine the levels of and drivers of change in benchmark risk from the perspective of our fundamental and macroeconomic risk models. We will also discuss factor returns and the impact constraints may have had on the ability of managers to achieve those returns, as well as other drivers of investment opportunity, such as asset dispersion.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): What are they – and aside from reporting and regulation, how do you integrate SDGs into asset allocation and portfolio construction?
Join analytics and index provider Qontigo and APG on behalf of the Sustainable Development Investments Platform (SDI AOP) for this webinar, where we will cover topics including:
- Where SDGs fit in the landscape of responsible investing
- The importance of SDGs in portfolio construction
- Building customized indices integrating ESG criteria with risk budget and performance-related objectives
- Real life applications of the SDI AOP data
Skyrocketing consumer prices around the world are once again turning the correlation of stock and bond returns positive, severely limiting diversification opportunities for multi-asset class investors. The accompanying surge in interest rates sent shockwaves through government and investment-grade bond markets, as traders brought forward their expectations of central-bank rate hikes. Index-linked government securities were hit especially hard and are now as risky as equities. High-yield bonds, in contrast, benefitted from tighter credit spreads, as stock markets continued their ascent. Commodity currencies also stand to profit from the underlying rise in costs for energy and raw materials.
Join us in this webinar to hear more about the biggest risks and opportunities in multi-asset class investing in the coming year.
