Topic Synopsis: Seeking Alpha in a Low Return World
Over the last ten years, financial markets have delivered strong returns. Looking ahead, with equity markets fully valued and bonds yields still close to historic lows, institutional investors are unlikely to enjoy the level of returns achieved over the past decade. David Greene will discuss what investors should realistically expect from future asset returns and consider how alpha can best be obtained in this environment.
