Overview

Investors are in unchartered territory as volatility and uncertainty dominate.  The realities of BREXIT for the UK and EU, as well as fears about China, the slump in oil prices, and worries about the impact of higher interest rates are playing havoc with markets, with no end in sight.   The implications for investments and investment strategies across all assets are far reaching as the hunt for yield intensifies.   How should investors and asset managers react in this turbulent trading environment?  What should they do differently now than two years ago and what rates of return should they aspire to?

Addressing these and other key questions facing the investment community, the FT’s Investment Management Summit Europe is an unparalled gathering of key executives from leading pension funds, insurance funds, sovereign wealth funds, endowments and private banks.  Join CEOs, CIOs, Chief Economists, portfolio managers and leading analysts to analyse the outlook for returns across all asset classes with in-depth discussion on the intended and untended consequences of UK’s exit from the EU, the prospects for investments in fixed income, equities, emerging markets, China, ETFs and more.

With investors on edge, the business of investment management is also undergoing going change.  This Summit will explore how fund managers, under pressure to deliver returns, are innovating across their businesses to compete against new market entrants, in an environment of technological disruption, rising costs in an environment where BREXIT is dominating the agenda in the UK and EU.

    Investor Panel: The hunt for yield in an era of uncertainty

    Against a backdrop of struggling global growth, the realities of BREXIT, concerns around China and falling oil prices, investors face unprecedented questions on how and where to generate growth from their assets. What are the key factors influencing portfolio allocations? How are institutions weighing up the balance between risk and return?

    • Taking on risk to achieve higher yields – is now the right time?
    • Finding the right balance between allocations to traditional and non-traditional assets
    • Changing models – what do investors expect from their asset managers?

    Panel: Crisis as the mother of innovation in asset management - seeing what's next

    Complacency is not an option for asset managers on the hunt for growth and new business. Though the value of investible assets continues to rise, the evolving dynamics of the EU following the UK referendum, changing demographics, competition from new entrants, rising client expectations, pressure on fees and increased regulation are challenging fund houses to innovate and differentiate across their business to drive future profitability.

    • Reconnecting with the client base – how are expectations evolving?
    • Regional or global – is there room for both?
    • Harnessing technology to delivering business efficiencies
    • The challenge of building a culture of transparency, communication and differentiated offering

    Panel: Fixed income investing – the liquidity dilemma

    Investing in fixed income markets continues to play a key role in institutional portfolios but the pervading threat of a bond market liquidity crunch is a real cause for concern. What are the options for investors looking for yield in this asset class? How much evidence is there of a decline in market liquidity and what are the implications for investors and asset managers?

    • Managing illiquidity to generate returns
    • Analysing the liquidity of fixed income ETFs
    • Innovation in the yield drought – new products, new regions

    Panel: ESG as a critical driver of investment and value creation

    Institutional appetite for sustainable investment is on the rise.  In the current environment how are standards for ESG integration changing and what do asset owners expect from their asset managers in this area?

    • To what extent are sector-specific ESG policies informing institutional portfolios? Does ESG add value?
    • How ESG is being integrated across different assets
    • Ensuring the standard of Green Bonds
    • To what extent are asset managers moving towards having a full ESG strategy in line with clients

    Panel: ETFs – risks and rewards for institutional portfolios

    As institutional investors look set to increase allocations to ETFs, some reports predict the market will hit US$5tn by 2020. But this rapid growth is coming under scrutiny, not least by regulators in the US, concerned about the market’s staggering size and inherent stability. What place should and do these products have in institutional portfolios and do investors fully appreciate their complexity?

    • To what extent are ETFs changing behaviour in markets?
    • ETFs and speculators – the long and short of it
    • Managing the growing complexity of ETF products – how much do investors understand?
    • Leveraged and inverse ETFs – how ‘toxic’ are they?

    Panel: Finding value in equities

    Equities have been rocked by acute market swings in recent months. As headwinds from China, commodities, US interest rate policies and geopolitics play havoc with investor confidence and corporate valuations, how should asset owners allocate to this key asset class? Are there opportunities in volatility and how can they be captured?

    • Value vs. growth in uncertain times
    • The outlook for developed and emerging market equities
    • Japan and Europe – how strong are the fundamentals outside of central bank stimulus
    • Active vs. passive – assessing equity ETFs in managing volatility

The genesis of the Malta Funds Industry Association, MFIA, dates back to 22 September 2003. Following Malta's accession to the European Union on 1 May 2004, the industry witnessed an increased interest by international fund promoters to domicile their funds in Malta. This was without doubt driven by a number of success factors which amongst others, included the presence of a comprehensive legal and regulatory framework, cost competitiveness and a professional business environment. As a result of these developments, the Association broadened its remit to represent the interest of fund administrators, following the initiative taken by the main market players at that time to set up specialist fund administration operations and with a clear distinction from fund management business. The strong growth of the industry in these last few years subsequently necessitated that the Association reviews its statute to encompass a wider spectrum of practitioners actively involved in the funds industry.

The MFIA acts as a channel of communication and to make representations to the Maltese Government and the Malta Financial Services Authority on legislative, regulatory and fiscal matters which amongst others, directly or indirectly, have an effect on the business and/or professional interests of its members. The Association is also a member of the European Funds and Asset Management Association.
