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.
