Multi-Asset Credit Roundtable | October 2021
Constructing a debt portfolio without boundaries has many benefits. Picking fixed income assets regardless of type, jurisdiction or rating could, depending on the manager, provide investors with the nimbleness to move to where the risk-return profile is more attractive if markets change. This is what multi-asset credit (MAC) funds are designed to do. Yet there are concerns.
Did these funds perform as the marketing claimed they would during the Covid-induced economic disruption we saw last year. How can managers be expert on the entire fixed income universe? And how can they include ESG into such portfolios? We brought together those who invest in, manage and advise on such funds to discuss these questions and more.

Roundtable | Green Bonds | July 2021
A green bond is a simple concept. Investors lend money to corporates, governments or banks which use the capital to fund projects that create a positive environmental impact.
Investors are bullish with a record $650bn (£470bn) of the debt expected to be issued in 2021, 32% higher than was offered to investors in the previous year. But, like a lot of things in life, there are issues. So, we sat down with asset owners, investment managers and a consultant to find out if such products are fit for purpose and to look at how the market is developing.
