Invest in US Bricks & Mortar… with Bonds & Mortgages
With the US economy poised to strengthen further, US real estate continues to offer upside potential.

In this session, AllianceBernstein will cover their pure-play Mortgage Income strategy that seeks to capitalize on the US real estate recovery through bonds.

HY FRN’s: Ride the rising interest rate tide
Following several years of all-time low interest rates and a global economy that is gaining
momentum, many investors are beginning to anticipate rate rises and are looking at ways they
can protect their bond portfolios from a tightening of monetary policy. High yield floating rate
notes (FRNs) can provide a natural hedge against rising rates while offering an attractive level of
income. Gordon Harding from M&G’s fixed interest team will provide an overview of the market
and introduce a new fund that can serve as an alternative to leveraged loans.

The rise of the Asian Consumer
Welcome to the age of the “Asian Consumer”: a trend that is long-term and sustainable in the emerging markets, created by the increase in purchasing power of the rising middle class and with it the change in patterns of consumption.
Further driven by population growth, industrialization and urbanization across all emerging economies, consumer spending priorities are prevalent throughout the various sectors like healthcare, luxury spending, mobilization, tourism and gaming. The huge potential and increasing influence of the “Asian Consumer” presents opportunities abound.
