New Generation Investing - strategies for an uncertain world
Investing against a background of persistently low interest rates presents new challenges, especially for people looking for long-term income. We start this session by reviewing investment theory to get a core understanding of how markets operate. We consider the role of diversification in managing portfolio risk and the impact of investor psychology on portfolio returns. We wrap up this section by considering persistent anomalies that appear to contradict the theory.
The session concludes with a discussion around future investment direction, drawing on our research into long-term socio-economic trends such as the rise of robotics; the changing nature of work; the effects of an aging population and the continuing demand for scarce resources and their implication for long-term investing.
The masterclass is likely to be interesting to investors at all stages but particularly those at or approaching retirement.
