Passive Solutions for Investors Without a Crystal Ball
How are Trends Like ESG and Factors Being Used to Position for 2020?

London, Thursday, 19th March, 2020 | 2:30 PM - 6:00 PM GMT

A complimentary event for investment professionals

The last decade served up multiple equity market records, and other principle asset classes delivered strong performance. Yet we also witnessed record-low yields given the abrupt U-turns of central banks, who persisted in their policy of monetary easing. Now settling into 2020, how can we look back at the market highs and lows of the last decade to help make more informed investment decisions?

Join us and leading practitioners to find out how the wide spectrum of indexing solutions available may better help investors position their portfolios this year and beyond.

Topics will include:

  • Assessing the staying potential of the winning asset classes over the last decade 
  • Staying ahead of the curve to integrate ESG and factor trends 
  • Appropriately positioning portfolios in a low yield environment
  • Gauging the index solutions available to help navigate rising trade tensions, geopolitical uncertainty, and global recessionary fears
