Breakout sessions
15:30 – 16:00

Stream 1: Maximising global growth opportunities 

With global central banks fighting inflation, resulting in slower economic growth, this has presented a number of rare opportunities to accumulate high-quality assets whose growth prospects have been undervalued by markets.

Equities, that were previously too frothy or overvalued, and alternatives, that until a few years ago were still struggling to break into the mainstream amongst private banking clients, are now where those same clients are finding healthy returns amidst choppy markets.

Join this stream for two deep dives into where to focus when it comes to equity markets, and what liquid/semi-liquid strategies, private equity, REITS or infrastructure projects investors should be considering when looking into 2023.

Opportunities in private real estate in an inflationary world

Hosted by:

Real estate assets are often heard to be effective hedges against inflation due to the positive correlation of inflation with rents and capital values. As the old adage goes: “location, location, location”. But an even more relevant mantra would be “sector, sector, sector”, where Nuveen has seen a large divergence of performance since the onset of Covid-19. What’s happening in the US and Asia property markets? Will property prices continue to rise?

Speakers:

Richard Kimble
Managing Director & Lead Portfolio Manager, Real Estate, Nuveen

Christian Leger
Managing Director, Head of Switzerland, Global Client Group, Nuveen

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 Investing: Approach to ESG risk and investment integration

Hosted by:

There is increasing awareness that material ESG factors can be tied to a company’s long-term growth potential, and it’s becoming the most widespread sustainable investment practice in the market today. Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure investors feel empowered and confident in their ESG investment approach as they look to integrate sustainability insights and data into their traditional investment processes. Join this session as Morningstar’s research analyst and Morningstar Sustainalytics’ specialist discuss the latest ESG market trends and how their ESG Risk Rating framework identifies consequential risk within a portfolio. Also there are sector examples that illustrate Morningstar’s approaches to integrating ESG into equity analysis.

Speakers:

Yayoi Asazuma
Director of Client Relations, Morningstar Sustainalytics

Lorraine Tan
Regional Director of Equity Research, Asia, Morningstar Investment Adviser Singapore Pte Limited

16:00 – 16:30
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.

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 can add value to your portfolio?

16:45 – 17:15

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?

Speakers:

Marie Chew
Executive Director & Head of Funds & Alternatives, Singapore, UBS Global Wealth Management
Kah Yi Chung
Head of Alternative Investments, Southeast Asia, Investments and Wealth Solutions, HSBC
Royston Low
Managing Director & Regional Head, Private Investments, BNP Paribas Wealth Management

Cryptocurrencies and private banking – a 2023 tale of romance, or a horror story?

What if there was a way that a private bank could offer crypto trading solutions for their clients in Asia Pacific, that satisfies both demand and regulatory compliance? How far are we from achieving this reality? 2022 has been a defining year for crypto markets, which have suffered in parallel with their peers in the equities and fixed income space, albeit with greater volatility, mirroring traditional assets by responding positively or negatively to institutional, regulatory and market sentiment. Yet the block remains firmly in place on private banks offering a full suite of crypto services for the region’s investors. What’s next for the marriage of private wealth management and cryptocurrencies, and how do the experts predict the coming years to play out? Join our panellists to learn more.
