2019 Events

23rd May 2019 - IMAP Webinar - Best Interest Duty and Where to from here?
Charles Stodart, Investment Specialist Zurich Investments provided a Market update.  After a strong start to the year, which has seen nearly every asset class move sharply higher, several indices have recently tested record levels. Dovish Central Banks, an apparent trade truce and stimulus in China have all been enthusiastically received by equity investors. However, economic data has been patchy and headline corporate earnings relatively uninspiring.

Given that, is this market enthusiasm entirely justified? Having shifted from a position of extreme pessimism in late 2018, are investors now too optimistic?

This presentation looked at key economic developments and the response of capital markets. It considered the growth outlook and offers a ‘look under the bonnet’ to identify pockets of earnings acceleration and where growth opportunities might exist for global equity investors.

Andrew Fraser, National Manager Strategic Sales of HUB24 then discussed how advisers are managing their BID obligations, how platform technology and managed portfolios can support advisers, and he covered:

• Results from HUB24’s recent adviser survey on BID

• How platforms can support Best Interest Duty

• What advisers need to think about when selecting products

IOOF Webinar Using bonds through a Separately Managed Account

15th November 2016 IOOF Webinar Using bonds through a Separately Managed Account to meet your clients’ income needs Webinar sponsored by IOOF

Presented by Alwyn Hung, Portfolio Manager - Fixed Income, Mason Stevens 

In this low growth environment where managed fund distributions are not guaranteed and difficult to measure and the potential for rate rises to create capital losses is high, an alternative investment strategy may be required in order to meet client financial objectives, where capital stability and certainty of cash flows is paramount.

This webinar provided information about direct ownership of a bond portfolio and how it can be an available and cost effective way to gain exposure to fixed income. It covered:

  1. alternative and cost effective fixed income solutions.
  2. knowledge about differentiating the structural risks and benefits between managed funds and direct investing.
  3. understanding about how bonds work within a Separately Managed Account.
  4. the right (and simple) fixed income solution to meet your clients’ goals based on their life stage.

All attendees received a copy the Mason Stevens Whitepaper: Distinguishing Risks between Managed Funds and Direct Ownership – a look at fixed income.
