Wednesday webinar at one: Multi-asset investing in 2024: Comeback or reset?

Wednesday 31 January 2024 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

2022 was the worst year for stocks and shares in over nine decades. 2023 saw persistent inflation and tighter-for-longer monetary conditions that saw correlation in the movements of stocks and shares.

With consumer prices starting to decelerate faster than many had anticipated, traders are now bringing forward their rate-cut expectations. While fixed income assets are bound to benefit from lower yields, the impact on equity markets will depend on whether the two asset classes will retain their positive correlation or whether we will see a reset to their pre-COVID ‘normal’ of offsetting returns. 

In this webinar, Christoph Schon, CFA, CIPM, Senior Principal at Axioma, will guide you through several pivotal opportunities, such as falling inflation and interest rates and associated risks e.g., monetary-policy and inflation projections being too optimistic for multi-asset investors.  He will also assist you in generating concepts for how to model and quantify the impact of each scenario on your portfolios. 

At the end of this webinar, you will: 

  • understand potential headwinds and tailwinds for multi-asset class investors in 2024, such as changes in monetary-policy and inflation expectations 
  • explore ways of modelling the impact of these risk factors on multi-asset class portfolios through stress testing and scenario analysis 
  • evaluate the implications for portfolio diversification and balanced investing going forward.
