Style investing the smart way: Actively combining risk premiums to achieve stable out-performance. An actively managed approach to harvesting risk premiums, known as style investing, offers stable, relative risk-adjusted return potential, and provides diversification and low-correlation. Our speaker will review three key aspects of style investing.
Major Forces and Trends in 2016: As we enter into a new calendar year, what are some of the big issues that will likely see continuations from the previous periods? Further rate increases by the Fed? Will they have a strong enough US economy to back it up? The shockwaves from a struggling Chinese economy? How much longer can energy prices stay low? Most importantly, how might our investment portfolios be affected as these issues unfold?
Practical Steps towards ESG Integration: More and more investors have added Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) as well as manager diversity considerations to their board meeting agendas. How can these be woven into the portfolio construction process? Where do we start?
Investing in Today's Global Equity Markets: Amid the dynamic nature of global equity markets, where can opportunities be found today and what are the challenges facing plan sponsors? With strong-performing U.S. equities in the last few years, the idea of global diversification has been put to test. But as markets continuously cycle, it’s important to remember what has worked for one time period may not work for the next. Join us for a conversation on how investment managers, consultants and plans can help identify the alpha opportunities to meet long-term funding obligations.
