BlackRock Presentation Synopsis

Finding Certainty in Fixed Income in an Uncertain World

Exposure to income-generating corporate bonds remains an attractive proposition in a world of low yields and gradual rate hikes. Diverging monetary policy and company-specific risks will cause more volatility and greater dispersion among companies’ performance. This will create numerous alpha opportunities for corporate bond investors. Susan Rohe, Relationship Manger in the UK Retail business, will share our latest views and insights on the key factors driving fixed income markets. Susan will discuss how to navigate volatile markets to generate an attractive income for investors.

Schroders Presentation Synopsis

Multi-asset investing: good ideas are only half the story - here's the other half

We understand investors need to generate stable returns but face an environment of subdued growth and historically low sovereign bond yields, following years of quantitative easing which has borrowed returns from the future, especially for lower risk assets. Where opportunities do exist, they will require investors to endure additional risk, for this reason we believe a multi-asset solution harnessing diversified sources of return offers investors a flexible approach to obtaining a stable, smoother path of returns in these challenging market conditions. By casting our net as widely as possible, we can exploit opportunities in places that others may not be able to access. Our strategy is one which adapts to different market environments, through a detailed assessment of valuations and the economic cycle, as well as employing real world forward looking risk scenarios.
