AGENDA

11:00AM - 12:00PM ET
Tomorrow's Global Portfolio: The Outlook for International ETFs
  • How much will the dollar matter?
  • Is now the time for advisors to break their client's home-bias tendencies?
  • What's the right approach to breaking out of the U.S. market?
The experts at iShares join us as we take a dive into the world outside the US and explore the opportunities for international investing in the coming year. We'll take a look into how the Covid vaccine and the incoming Biden administration will affect the geopolitical landscape, and how to keep a global perspective.
12:00 – 1:00PM ET
The ESG Advantage: The Emerging Face of Sustainable Investing?
  • Why a sustainable strategy is critical to your success
  • Integrating sustainable approaches with your investment outlook
  • Taking climate into consideration
2020 showed us that Sustainable investing is both here to stay, and a critical tool for managing risk across your entire portfolio. We'll provide a framework for evaluating your sustainable options, and a clear plan for how to discuss this exciting evolution of investment management with your clients.
1:00 – 2:00PM ET
Looking Beyond 60/40: Making Fixed Income Work in the Real World
  • What's the right allocation to Fixed Income?
  • Are bonds just for risk management or are there more opportunities?
  • What's the outlook on interest rates and inflation?
Decades of research have led us to believe that fixed income securities play specific, defined roles in investment portfolios: providing yield and counter-correlation. But with interest rates near zero and inflation muted, where does fixed income fit in a modern portfolio? We'll look at how both traditional and next-generation fixed income ETFs can help manage the risk and return of your entire portfolio
