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.
2021 has been a year of strong markets and declining risk, lower asset volatility and declining correlations, as stocks tended to move more on their individual characteristics rather than because of broad ties to market movements. Style factor returns were much closer to expectations as compared with 2020, while macroeconomic factors played an important role in investor behavior. In this webinar we will review the risk environment in 2021 from a number of vantage points, and hope to help managers and asset owners prepare for their year-end conversations.
Demand for customized portfolios among individual investors is growing and the industry has responded with sharp increases in acquisitions and product offerings in the marketplace. Our panelists from Charles River Development and Qontigo will discuss the industry drivers leading to this surge in adoption, past obstacles to portfolio customization, and how wealth and asset managers can best leverage technology to provide customized portfolios that improve investor outcomes while streamlining operations and managing costs.
Things are not always as they appear. 2020 will be remembered as the year of the COVID-19 crash, yet “Risk-On” strategies greatly outperformed their “Risk-Off” counterparts on the back of unprecedented QE programs. 2021 saw no fewer than 60 historical new highs for the US market, yet “Risk-Off” strategies outperformed “Risk-On” ones as investor sentiment remained highly skeptical all year. Where is sentiment now? What are factor returns telling us about investor’s strategy implementations ahead of 2022? Are there regional differences in how investors are playing the post-pandemic global economic recovery? Join us for this webinar as we evaluate this past year and extract the most useful insights for investors in 2022.
