Delegated Investment Focus – The Bear; and now the Bull?
2020 has been a year that none of us will forget! After the onset of the worst global pandemic since Spanish Flu a century ago, equity markets experienced their fastest ever bear market (falls of 20%). Since then, central bank policy helped equities reach all-time highs. Unprecedented moves; unprecedented volatility.
In this webinar, specialists from our fiduciary and investment teams will look at the actions we have taken since we last spoke to you in May.
We will explore how we have adapted portfolios and taken advantage of what appears to be a transition from one market cycle to another.
Key topics to be discussed include:
- Our view of where we are on this transition and the outlook ahead — William Parry, Principal
- How we have positioned portfolios in response to markets — Adrian Mitchell, EMEA CIO
- Why hedge funds, an asset class that has long been out of favour, has been highly supportive in recent months — Matthew Towsey, Hedge Fund Specialist
- Why continuing the momentum in ESG matters — Philippa Allen, Portfolio Manager
Aon’s Responsible Investment Network – Investors as a driving force for change
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM BST
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has risen ever-higher up the agenda for companies and investors. Increasing regulation is but one contributor to this – the events of this year, together with the urgency around climate change, have illuminated the strong link between ESG and long-term value creation.
In our next meeting of Aon’s Responsible Investment Network, we will consider what this means for investors – and, drawing on recent experiences from industry and the pensions world, the role they can play to drive change through effective engagement and stewardship.
On the day, we will be joined by:
- Sarah Faivre-Ovion, Director of Investor Relations, ESG at bp
Sarah will provide an insight into how investor engagement has informed and supported development of bp’s recently-announced strategy, which will see bp transition from an International Oil Company to an Integrated Energy Company.
- Tegs Harding, Professional Trustee, Independent Trustee Services
As firms in all sectors increase their focus on ESG, Tegs will consider the new and emerging investment propositions available to investors – and how to interpret, challenge and implement them for responsible investment portfolios.
