ESG 2022

A tipping point for ESG investing?

As assets re-price and investors grapple with the reality of today’s market environment, questions are emerging about the sustainability of sustainable investing. It is a pivotal time for ESG investment strategies.

Although the integration of ESG factors into investment processes has gained momentum within Asia over the past couple of years, it is still at a relatively early stage for many investors. Further, the challenges that portfolios face from rising interest rates, inflation and geopolitical tension – among other dynamics – have weighed on the performance of ESG-compliant securities. This has cast a shadow over the appeal, and even relevance, of ESG investing.

In addition, investors are increasingly querying how they can address hurdles in data comparability, transparency and reporting.

Against this backdrop, Spotlight On: ESG brings together investment specialists from the private wealth and fund management communities to discuss and debate market trends. They will highlight the opportunities, challenges and outlook for ESG and thematic strategies, with key questions in mind, including:

  • What does the outlook for ESG funds look like given the need to ensure financial performance in addition to ‘doing the right thing’?
  • How high on the agenda really is sustainability amid the other portfolio priorities for investors today?
  • Can the industry ensure greater clarity around different ESG investment options and their legitimacy?
  • Where can investors source the required quantitative evidence to create comfort with ESG investing?
  • How will looming regulations and standards impact how investors define and assess ESG strategies?
  • Where will ESG strategies fit amid evolving approaches to portfolio construction and recalibrated models?

Join this event to hear insights and experiences in an engaging and interactive session that explores how to make ESG matter to your portfolio.

Income 2022

The search for reliable sources of income in today’s environment is forcing investors to look beyond their usual universe. Ongoing volatility due to macroeconomic and geopolitical risks has focused attention on finding the assets, geographies and strategies that enable portfolios to achieve the desired levels of yield, diversification and ESG alignment.

As these goals drive allocation decisions, investors are also grappling with the impact of a new world order and an uncertain outlook for rates, inflation and financial markets.

Against this backdrop, the FSA Spotlight On: Income event discussed the trends and challenges now confronting income investors. These included:

  • Predicting the rates cycle and inflation outlook
  • Understanding the macro and market factors shaping portfolios and allocation decisions
  • Finding resilient income in an evolving world order
  • Balancing emerging Vs developed markets exposure, and investment grade Vs high yield credit
  • Identifying the sectors and geographies to ensure effective diversification
  • Building sustainability into bond portfolios

2021

Equities 2022

Investors around the world are holding tight to the latest rollercoaster ride in global equity markets. And there is no clear sign of when it might end; volatility is an ever-bigger part of the existing mix of rising interest rates and inflation – at the same time as a post-pandemic world grapples with a return to normality amid extreme geopolitical tension and uncertainty.

This is far more challenging than even the most bearish investors were expecting. Strong corporate earnings growth in 2021 was supported by record monetary and fiscal stimulus that helped a turnaround in business activity. Even though inflation and higher rates were on the horizon, the investment environment has become more unpredictable than anyone could have imagined.

In response, rotation into growth, value, cyclical or defensive stocks, as well as regional exposures, will be determined by a blend of macroeconomic and geopolitical factors, as well as far-reaching structural trends. At the same time, investors continue to strive to achieve key sustainability targets via allocations to a variety of themes in emerging sectors.

Against this backdrop, the FSA Spotlight On: Equities event will examine how investors can allocate their assets to various companies, markets and strategies.

Themes tied to technology and healthcare have become the clear beneficiaries of 2020, benefitting from lockdowns to contain Covid-19. While they continue to be long-term themes, an expectation of a global economic recovery, on the back of the development of a vaccine, should bode well for beaten markets last year.

Spotlight On takes a deep dive on this expected sector rotation and our partners Federated Hermes, Mirae Asset Global Investments and TT International will be discussing how investors should allocate their assets in the global equity market, what opportunities they should take advantage of, as well as identify the risks that they should be aware of in 2021.

Dedicated partner pages with video content, reports and analysis will go live w/c 22 February however you can register now for the Spotlight On: Equities LIVE event on 25 February here.

Our partners Eastspring Investments and Vontobel Asset Management will examine fixed income strategies that provide opportunities to achieve positive returns and mitigate risk as markets adjust to the shifting interest rate outlook.

Spotlight On: ESG is designed to explore these trends, with market experts sharing relevant insights and experience in an engaging and interactive session.
