Smart beta allocations to rise by a quarter in 3 years: Invesco

first_imgHe added: “Smart beta is no panacea, but it does have the potential to help with [these] major and emerging challenges.”The report said that the persistent low interest rate environment had it made it tough for many investors to achieve low-risk returns, leading to shorter investment time horizons.More than three-quarters of respondents (78%) said they felt under pressure to deliver portfolios with strong performance in a shorter timeframe, Invesco said.The report – Smart beta strategies: more bricks for portfolio building – examined the drivers of smart beta adoption, the implementation challenges faced by current users, and the expectations for future allocation.Well over half of institutional investors said they would be interested in smart beta in the fixed-income space with credit, corporate bonds and high-yield corporate bonds areas investors would consider investing in.Paul added: “Attention must therefore be paid to further education, further product innovation, and – especially in the fixed income space – building partnerships with fund providers, if [investors’] expectations are not to be disappointed.”In equities, Invesco said there were still plenty of opportunities with more than half of users saying they would consider smart beta exposure for Asia Pacific and emerging market equities.Quality, momentum and multi-factor were the current leading strategies, with usage of these three strategies doubling from 2016 to 2017, particularly amongst retail investors.Invesco said it had also noted increasing sophistication among smart beta users, with investors’ knowledge increasing in direct proportion to the length of their investment in smart beta.There was also a noticeable shift from traditional, asset-based allocation to more risk-based allocation as knowledge increases.Although smart beta was growing, there was entrenched scepticism amongst non-users in Invesco’s survey, over half of whom explained their reluctance as coming from a firm belief in active management.However, some 42% of non-users said that they would consider deploying smart beta in the future, with traditional strategies their most likely route into the strategy. Faced with an increasingly difficult investment environment, a growing number of investors are looking to significantly increase allocations to smart beta strategies, according to a survey conducted by Invesco PowerShares.The exchanged-traded fund provider spoke to 435 institutional and retail investors in six European markets, and found that allocation to smart beta strategies was expected to rise to 23% (from the current 13%) over the next three years.The rise was linked to investors dealing with the challenges posed by low yields, scarce value and shorter investment horizons, the report said.Mike Paul, head of Invesco PowerShares in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: “Smart beta has been one of the definitive market trends of the past decade with expectations for further strong growth driven by innovative approaches to challenges faced by investors such as low yields and finding value.”last_img read more

Thebes recruits an expert in crisis and corporate communication

first_imgThis Monday, numerous meetings are being held in LaLiga online. Thebes has not stopped for a second giving coverage to the different presidents of professional football, while he has been in permanent contact with national and international institutions to discuss what to do in the coming months. At 12:00 the Management Committee began, in which Rocío Pérez de Sevilla is already present and fully integrated, and afterwards a meeting will be held by videoconference with the Delegate Commission to which six First-rate clubs belong. (Madrid, Seville, Betis, Valencia, Villarreal and Levante) and six others from Segunda (Depor, Cádiz, Las Palmas, Alcorcón, Almería and Lugo). LaLiga, after this meeting, announced the suspension of the elections to the second vice presidency of LaLiga.According to different interviews that he has recently given for his experience in the media, Rocío Pérez de Sevilla is clear about the first thing to do when difficulties arise: “Managing emotions is the most difficult thing in crisis communication.”The entry of Rocío Pérez from Seville does not mean, at the moment, any exit from the communication department but rather a restructuring of the human resources that LaLiga already had since the arrival of Javier Tebas to the presidency in 2013. The president of LaLiga, Javier Tebas, spares no resources or efforts for the employers to take another leap of quality in the face of the exceptional situation experienced by the clubs. Despite the fact that he had been considering the option of strengthening the communication department for many months, it has been now, with the coronavirus crisis, when he has put a new professional at the forefront of the communication strategy. This is Rocío Pérez de Sevilla, specialist in crisis management and corporate communication, who had already been (very short) adapting to her new job. It was selected through a talent company by Roberto Bermúdez. She is the person who is coordinating LaLiga’s communication with the clubs to provide them with all the official information that is handled and, above all, to manage with them the plans to follow. She will be director of communication for the institutional section and will be below Joris Evers.Rocío Pérez de Sevilla comes from Atrevia’s corporate communication department. Although she is not especially an expert in soccer, the professionals who have worked alongside her acknowledge that she is highly trained and that she has not hesitated to accept the offer to be Javier Tebas’ right hand man from now on. The new star signing of LaLiga is already designing the internal and external communication plan with the clubs, many of which have recognized AS that things are being done very well in LaLiga in handling the situation thanks to the help of others and other professionals who have been working with them for many months since LaLiga.last_img read more
