Investment strategies in a negative yield environment
Investors continue to enjoy the longest bull run in history despite interest rates in developed markets being kept at record lows in order to combat deflation. However, with recession signals flashing around the world, they need to build resilient portfolios while this extended cycle prevails. Geopolitical uncertainties, such as Brexit and US-China trade tensions, are also influencing investment decisions.
Finally, while the terms of a Brexit deal are finalised, there are still concerns over future relations between the UK and the European Union. What will the implications be for insurers? How will they be regulated, which operations will be affected, and how will they serve their European clients?
Presented by Financial Times Live and MandateWire, Managing Assets for Insurers, now in its sixth year, is a meeting point for leading investors from the insurance sector to discuss the most effective strategies to deliver growth at a time of economic slowdown and increasing market volatility.
