MSCI RESEARCH AGENDA
|9:15 a.m.|| |
FUTURE OF EMERGING MARKETS
For the past 30 years emerging markets have provided return enhancement and risk diversification opportunities for global investors. The ongoing liberalisation of the domestic Chinese capital market has the potential to transform the characteristics of the asset class and its role in global portfolios. In this session we examine the challenges and opportunities that investors will face in managing their emerging markets allocations in the future.
|10:00 a.m.|| |
FACTOR BEHAVIOR IN DIFFERENT REGIMES
Style Factors behave differently in varied macro-economic environments and to that extent this seminar will explore the sensitivity of factor portfolios to changing interest rate and volatility regimes. As investors evaluate their factor allocation decisions it may be important to consider the impact of these macro regime changes on the range of style factors.

TAIL RISK PROTECTION: THE ROLE OF FIXED INCOME IN A MULTI-ASSET PORTFOLIO
We examine the economic rationales and the empirical evidence supporting the popular 60/40 portfolio of equities and bonds. We highlight the crucial role played by the bond/equity correlation in justifying fixed income as a portfolio diversifier. We construct and backtest several strategies designed to outperform a 60/40 benchmark and examine the robustness of results to underlying assumptions about correlations and volatilities.
