Bloomberg Invest Global
October 5 - October 6
Even as a vaccine light at the end of the pandemic tunnel grows brighter every day, institutional investors are still predicting significant headwinds in the near term as social, political and economic upheaval continues to dominate headlines and roil markets. The economic effects of the pandemic in many ways significantly altered the financial landscape that faced investors at the beginning of 2020, and while the core issues—fee pressures, low rates, volatility—have not fundamentally changed, they have been greatly exacerbated. But among the uncertainty lies opportunity. Even as many investors begin 2021 in defensive postures, there is a case to be made that those who adopt aggressive, active postures throughout the year may be best positioned to benefit the most from any significant economic rebounds. An increased risk appetite could mean outsized returns for those with the mettle to put money to work in sectors such as emerging market equities and alternatives, including Bitcoin, private debt and private equity. At this year’s Bloomberg Invest Global we will again focus on the key issues driving institutional investment strategies, offering valuable insights from top investors on how smart money can safely navigate an uncertain and risky environment. We’ll take the measure of the recovery and put 2021’s most popular strategies under the microscope to see what has worked and what hasn’t as we look ahead to 2022.
