The Shifting Bedrock of the Financial Markets – Public vs Private Securities
The financial markets are being buffeted by ever-changing economic and political news at a time when long-term demographics are changing the demand mix for financial securities and corporate financing sources are shifting. Helping investors navigate these sometimes cyclonic and seemingly unpredictable winds makes investment knowledge and perspective an even more important skill-set. Join us as we delve into the dynamics affecting the various types of securities and strategies that make up institutional investor portfolios when we bring together experts in the field to discuss their views on the near and longer term implications of current events as well as longer-term trends.
Debt – Public vs. Private
The current running narrative is that traditional fixed income yields are too low and therefore investors should shift to alternative assets (including private debt strategies such as direct lending) to help meet return challenges. Is that true? Have traditional public debt strategies failed investors? And, are private debt funds the magic bullet to solve return problems? In this session, we will discuss the merits and challenges of public debt and private debt. We will also discuss how investors can build portfolios that meet their ultimate goals.
