CFASO Fall Webinar Series - Absolute Return Strategies in a Post-COVID world
Unprecedented monetary and fiscal initiatives implemented to counter the spread of COVID-19 have succeeded in minimizing systemic economic risk, restoring market function, and alleviating negative market tail risk.

Along with behavioral changes motivated by Covid-19, these policy initiatives will have ramifications for the evolution of macro fundamentals between countries, as well as for expected long-term asset returns. The role of traditional asset classes within portfolios will likely evolve, and alternative assets and strategies able to enhance portfolio returns and mitigate economic risk associated with core holdings will likely gain in prominence.

Please join us for a discussion of CIBC Asset Management’s perspectives on the macroeconomic outlook, expected asset returns, and the role of Absolute Return strategies in navigating the post Covid-19 investment landscape.

Sep 15, 2020 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
