Sean Flanagan to attend Hamburg Summit
Sean Flanagan, senior investment manager, Aberdeen Asset Management is set to discuss the benefits of diversification at the upcoming Autumn Pan-European Summit Hamburg 2017, taking place 11-13 October at the Hotel Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall.
Most investors could dramatically improve their long-run returns and/or reduce risk by having a more diversified portfolio. This is particularly important in the challenging investment environment that we are currently in and are likely to be in for years to come.
A far broader range of investments, including listed alternatives, is now more readily accessible to investors. This includes asset classes such as emerging market bonds, infrastructure, property, high yield bonds, loans, asset-backed securities, insurance-linked securities, marketplace lending and aircraft leasing. By taking a more diversified approach to investing we seek to produce attractive long term returns with reduced volatility and with the return and risk coming from a variety of sources.
