Bond focus event kicks off in Milan
InvestmentEurope‘s Fund Selector Bond Focus 2016 has started in Milan with some 45 delegates and presentations currently underway.
Despite the historically low yield environment, fixed income remains an important asset class for traditionally conservative Italian investors.
The sponsors presenting at the Milan event will delve into the asset class to explore a number of strategies and opportunities.
AB’s head of European Credit Jorgen Kjaersgaard will aim to help delegates with their search for income amid volatile markets with challenging volatility conditions.
Carmignac’s Charles Zerah, fund manager Global Fixed Income, will explain how to generate performance while investing across sovereign, credit and currency markets.
Paolo Bernardelli of Eurizon Capital will present the company’s strategy of absolute return from unconstrained aggregation of ‘best ideas’ within fixed income with a disciplined approach.
Fisch AM’s Martin Haycock senior product manager will explore convertible bonds’ opportunities.
Vasiliki Pachatouridi, product strategist at BlackRock’s iShares will talk delegates through the opportunities offered by European credit ETFs.
Europe will be the focus of Christophe Peyraud and Delphine Laloum of Rothschild & Cie Gestion, fixed income fund manager and fixed income portfolio manager, who will share their views on the European bond market.
Finally, Standard Life Investments brought Felix Freund, senior portfolio manager European Corporate Bond fund, to analyse the behaviour of credit markets to try and figure out when will be the time to buy again.
