IPE Conference and Awards 2016

Welcome to the Amin Rajan - CREATE-Research

Workshop 2016

Investing in the Post-Brexit World

Thursday, 01 December 08:30 - 09:30

After eight years, QE has caused an unprecedented distortion of asset values through convictionless trades. The boundaries of the unconventional policies are being stretched to their extremes with the arrival of negative interest rates. Growth remains sub par in all the key regions. There is no sign of normalisation. 

The UK's recent vote to exit the European Union (Brexit) is yet another headwind unknown, with far-reaching consequences for the EU as an economic power. Donald Trump's victory will also have far reaching implications for global trade and national security.

Risks are staked up like a wedding cake. Against this background, and based on a new survey, this session will present an assessment based on the views of European pension funds on three pertinent issues:
 How will Brexit affect financial markets over the rest of this decade? 
 Which asset allocation approaches are likely to be adopted?
 Which investment innovations are likely to deliver acceptable results in the volatile environment of this decade?
