Below is a recap of last year’s episodes, insights, and speakers.

Stay tuned as Institutional Investor and RBC Global Asset Management team up again to offer solutions-oriented expertise and insights on how investors can best position their portfolios in 2023.

2022 has been a challenging year for investors who face a myriad of challenges – not least the lingering effects of the pandemic, historically high levels of inflation, a turning point in the global policy backdrop, and growth scares from China, all at a time when geopolitical tensions, and hence, volatility and risk premise, are elevated.

In this five-part webinar series, Institutional Investor and RBC Global Asset Management will team up to provide insights and fresh perspectives into a number of different approaches that investors can use to help navigate this complicated environment and mitigate the impact of upheavals on portfolios. We will kick off the series with an all-encompassing macro discussion, followed by four webinars over several months where we will tap the expertise across the BlueBay fixed income investment platform to address market conditions as they evolve.

What is comfortable is rarely profitable; today’s emerging markets

In the wake of this year’s global economic and political challenges, the conversations surrounding emerging markets have been more loaded than usual. As 2022 winds down, are EM investors optimistic or panic stricken? In episode four of our webinar series: 2022's Credit Conundrum on October 19 at 11am ET, Polina Kurdyavko, Head of Emerging Markets, will discuss some of the most pressing issues facing EM investors today. From more evergreen topics such as asset allocation and benchmarking, to those that are pertinent to 2022 like the Russia/Ukraine conflict and recent local currency volatility, this webinar will provide an up close and personal look at the current state of emerging market debt.

Searching through the rubble for fixed income opportunities

2022 has been a year to forget for investors as they have been forced to grapple with runaway inflation, heightened geopolitical tensions, skyrocketing commodities prices and a weakening growth backdrop.

Uncovering opportunities in private credit; the global perspective

There has been a seismic wave of capital being deployed into private credit in different forms in recent years. In this session we invite two members of the BlueBay investment team who live and breathe private credit on a daily basis to share some of their observations from both the developed market and emerging market vantage points. This will be a lively conversation in which we will be discussing the different opportunities on offer in private credit, and how this varies when looking through a DM or and EM lens.

Successful investing is about managing risk, not avoiding it

Fixed income has undoubtedly endured a challenging start to the year, with most mainstream indices deep in negative territory on a year-to-date basis. We will kick off our series of webinars with an open discussion with our BlueBay Chief Investment Officer, Mark Dowding, to address in detail some of the main macroeconomic forces shaping markets at the moment. Mark will offer his insights as to where we go from here from a fixed income perspective and suggest how investors can best position their portfolios for the remainder of 2022 and into 2023.
