Opening Keynote: : FTSE Russell Global Markets Research – Developed and emerging market bonds in a low interest rate world

Panel: Central banks and trade wars: What fundamentals are driving fixed income markets?

Bonds have bounced back in terrific fashion this year as central banks turned away from their hawkish policies following the wobble in Q4 2018. As the Federal Reserve continues to release dovish signals to the market, investor appetite is increasing for riskier parts of the market. However, is this a wise idea so late in the cycle? The ongoing trade war between the US and China combined with the evergreen risk of another eurozone crisis makes navigating the bond market a tricky prospect even for the most skilled investor.

Panel: New ideas in the search for yield

With the Federal Reserve almost certain to cut interest rates later this year, investors who want a steady yield are being forced to turn away from government bonds and look at other options. Gone are the days when the 10-year US Treasury paid you 7%, instead, the 10-year German Bund is being auctioned for -0.24%. In this low yield environment, investors are being forced to other parts of the market however, this presents significant risks so late in the cycle. This session explores some new ways investors can approach the never ending search for a greater risk-return profile.

Panel: Fixed income ETFs 2.0: What do the new breed of products look like?

With BlackRock controlling over 60% of the fixed income ETF market in Europe, ETF providers are moving away from the traditionally passive space that is dominated by the bigger players. Fixed income smart beta, credit default swaps and fallen angel ETFs, to name but a few, are quickly developing areas, however, are they viable investment options and do investors need them?
