Description

CFA Society Ireland invites you to attend our Annual Investment Forum.

Investing at the End of the Cycle

Three of the world’s major reserve currencies are now approaching the ends of the short-term and long-term debt cycles. Debt and non-debt obligations (like healthcare and pensions) are increasing faster than incomes that are required to fund them. Populism is rising in many countries driven by the increasing gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ while a significant conflict is developing between the two superpowers, US and China. At the same time, market valuations are arguably at rich levels while cash returns are negative.  How will monetary policy and fiscal policy change to help the global economy and what does it mean for investors?

This event is credited with 3 continuing education (CE) credits and 3 hours CPD (LIA)

This event will look at these themes including using factor investing to diversify your portfolio, China’s trade and FDI policies in light of their Belt & Road initiative and trade wars, a panel discussion on Investing at the end of the cycle and through a recession and a keynote presentation by Nick Lesson on rogue trading and risk management.
