Stream 1: Maximising returns in China equities 

Central banks globally are acting to fight inflation, resulting in slower economic growth in some areas.

With this, however, valuations for many have come down considerably, and have become attractive. This presents a rare opportunity to accumulate high-quality stocks when markets are undervaluing their growth prospects.

Join this stream to understand what regions in the world stand to offer the most opportunities for growth, and where investors can find attractive opportunities as they look to the new year.

Investing in China’s future growth drivers

 
Hosted by:

Recent events have added urgency to China’s move away from property and infrastructure, to a more diversified, self-sufficient, technology-led growth model. The innovation story is not new. China has already built global leadership in a number of areas. But this represents only the start of a long journey and there is a long runway for growth. The market cap of the top five healthcare stocks in China is almost 2 trillion dollars less than the US. And the market cap of the top 20 software companies in China is only 3% of the US. Join AllianzGI’s workshop to hear their experts speak about where they see structural growth potential, why they retain confidence in the outlook despite the near-term challenges, and how they are allocating capital after the market pullback.

Stream 2: Thematic investments as a core portfolio holding? 

Thematic investments are evolving from satellite instruments to increasingly core strategic holdings.

From ETFs to active funds, the growth of thematic products – from climate change and resource scarcity, to urbanisation and technology breakthroughs – presents long-term opportunities for clients who are aligning their social responsibilities with their financial aspirations.

Join this stream to understand how clients can be better informed on the megatrends that will shape the investment world in the future, and get the most out of their thematic strategies.

Sustainable Asian cities: A compelling – and urgent – investment opportunity

In partnership with:

By 2050, some 1.2 billion more people will live in Asian cities, and the region will account for more than half of the world’s urban population. To cope with such steep growth and the impact of increasingly frequent and severe climate events, Asia’s infrastructure will require sizeable funding, exceeding USD 1 trillion by 2025.

Bonds that are linked to a city’s sustainability pursuits offer an attractive investment proposition to invest in the future growth of Asia, through a dynamic mix of both sustainable-labelled bonds and conventional bonds aligned with the sustainable cities theme. Moreover, it is a chance for early investors to tap into the growing green premium (‘greenium’) of green, social and sustainable (GSS) bonds in Asia. Why should investors be paying attention to this nascent asset class and how can this strategy add value to your portfolio?

The challenges for private banks to meaningfully scale up their DPM offerings

The mantra of DPM – more consistency, combined with less emotion in the decision-making process – has started to bear fruit in 2022 with greater client engagement and improved DPM adoption rates at many private banks in the region. With an eye on another growth year in 2023, what DPM strategies make the most sense for private banks looking to combine their arsenal of digital prowess with intellectual experience and capability? How to overcome continued reticence from long-term advisory clients to guide them down the DPM path? How do banks find the edge in a crowded marketplace? What products are in the mix for inclusion in both current, and future DPM portfolios, and how do DPM managers weigh up the offerings for inclusion? Join our panel to learn more.

A new frontier: How are liquid alts set to democratise the private markets universe?

Alternatives have long been the exclusive domain of institutional investors. However, a saturated market is pushing asset managers to pursue other business – selling alternative strategies to high net worth individuals and affluent retail investors. From liquid/semi-liquid alternative strategies, exchange traded funds and specialised mutual funds, more accessible alternative products are helping wealth managers protect clients from bear market swings and rising interest rates. As offerings designed for retail investors are set to multiply significantly within the year, traditional asset allocations are set to become outdated. How are wealth managers ensuring clients have adequate alternative offerings in the coming months? How are these products structured and how do the returns compare to those with longer lock-up periods? What constraints are preventing even larger adoption of these types of funds across the wealth continuum? How will portfolio allocation change as these products continue to grow in number and size?

Mathieu Forcioli
Global Head and Asia-Pacific Head of Alternatives, HSBC Wealth and Personal Banking
Robert Reid
Global Head of Alternative Investments and Managed Solutions, Bank of Singapore
Philippe Spielhofer
Co-Head Advisory & Sales and Client Services APAC Managing Director, UBS Global Wealth Management
