mallowstreet University: Reaching the areas other EMD strategies don't reach

Emerging Markets Debt offers relatively high potential returns and diversification, so it's important that a manager has the flexibility to exploit these qualities to the fullest extent. At this dinner Franklin Templeton will explain how a blend of hard and local currency, sovereign and corporate debt can make the most of a risk budget - and how that looks very different to any EMD benchmark.

mallowstreet University Dinner: Emerging Markets - Why a valuation-based approach works

Valuations on Emerging Markets equities have reached historical lows relative to Developed Markets. Investors have been painfully reminded that these markets are prone to political, economic and currency crises. Over dinner, John Goetz, co-CIO of Pzena Investment Management, with over 20 years of investment experience in global and emerging markets, will explain why these characteristics make Emerging Markets such an attractive opportunity for investors and why using a value-based approach, especially now, makes sense.

mallowstreet University Dinner: The Rise of Smart Beta

Smart beta is one of the fastest-growing investment strategies in recent years. Pledging to replicate at lower cost what fund managers are doing already, smart beta ETFs attracted US$534bn in investments by end of January 2017*, and the market is predicted to reach US$1tn globally by 2020. However, in a world where there are no guarantees, how smart really is smart beta? Over dinner, Franklin Templeton will look at how investors are evaluating this new approach to investing and what place should it hold in institutional portfolios.

mallowstreet University Dinner: Tackling the 'cash flow negative' challenge

With a maturing UK defined benefit (DB) pensions landscape, schemes are moving from the accumulation phase to the decumulation phase as benefit payments become larger than contributions. This in turn requires a focus for pensions schemes to think about generating cash flow, not just income. In this session, Stephen Thariyan and Colin Fleury will look at how a multi-sector fixed income portfolio can be structured to meet short-term cash flows, and earn an attractive level of return by building a diversified portfolio that is structured to generate regular cashflows from both coupon payments and capital redemption/maturity proceeds.

mallowstreet University: Multi-Asset Investing Across Alternatives; Combination Solutions for Trustees to Consider

Institutional investment into alternative assets has become popular in recent years with inflows into private equity and infrastructure at or near record levels. The strategies that sit within alternative assets are quite diverse with risk, return and liquidity profiles that can vary significantly. But what if one could combine these underlying strategies in a single solution and potentially seek the best traits of each? In this University Dinner, Chicago-based Jonathan Levin from GCM Grosvenor will examine how this may be possible and will also provide insight into how a number of US pension plans have adopted this exact strategy, and the results they have achieved.
