With growth slowing in many corners of the world and ongoing concerns about emerging markets, particularly China, the global economic outlook for 2016 remains uncertain. Unprecedented challenges persist for investors and asset managers navigating a market heavily influenced by the prospects of interest rate normalisation, ongoing sluggishness in commodity markets and the looming threat of a fixed income liquidity crunch. How can investors protect their portfolios in this environment? Is now the right time to seek out value and opportunities in dipping markets? What is the right balance between risk and return?
With some of the top commentators on the global macro-economic outlook from the financial industry, the Financial Times is pleased to present its Asia Investor Outlook 2016. It will bring together institutional investors, private bankers, asset managers, market strategists and industry thought leaders to explore and debate the outlook for the investment landscape for 2016 and beyond.
