P&I Conferences & Webinars

Fixed Income Summit

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - Chicago

Thursday, May 15, 2014 - New York City

Increased credit risk is at the forefront of bond investors’ minds with expected interest-rate hikes likely to take place in the near future. With so many portfolios focused on preserving capital over the past several years, fixed income allocations have been on the increase despite low returns. Is it time to rebalance before the shift in fixed income occurs? Should fixed income still play a part in the majority of portfolios? These are crucial questions that P&I’s Fixed Income Summit will address where top industry experts will weigh in on key areas for creating robust risk-adjusted returns.

The New Emerging Markets Regime - Divergence & Differentiation

Originally Aired: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ET

U.S. investors have long been warned about the volatility of emerging markets assets. While 2013 may have been rough for some investors, many emerging economies were actually left in a stronger, more competitive position, thanks to enforced fiscal and monetary discipline. So, while many asset managers believe the overall emerging markets story is still strong, investors will need to pay increasing attention to differences among individual economies. Investors also need to consider that economic growth does not necessarily translate into stock returns, and while emerging market growth will still outpace developed markets, the new growth regime will be slower, with more divergence among countries. Join our panel of experts as they make the case for why investors should continue to consider emerging markets and discuss EM Equity Issues, Frontier Markets, EM Debt Issues and Currencies.

Is Eurozone Finally Turning the Corner in 2014? Perspectives on European Equity and Fixed Income Markets

Wednesday, April 23, 2014
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ET

Since the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis arose in early 2009, global markets had largely written off the region’s economies as being in a state of total disrepair and facing a long road to recovery. However, increasingly encouraging data suggests that many of the obstacles along that road to economic growth are being removed and there is compelling evidence pointing to 2014 being a pivotal year for the Eurozone’s economy. Join David Hussey, Daniel S. Janis, III and Timothy Barron to discuss if allocations to Europe are merely a tactical opportunity, or if now is the time to make a more long-term strategic allocation back into region.
