The impact of the energy crisis on the global economy

Due to increased energy and food prices, economic forecasts remain cautious, fearing significant losses in purchasing power which could lead to a recession. The economic downturn is likely to be further exacerbated by central banks’ anti-inflation monetary policy. By contrast, the labour market continues its robust trajectory and should be able to cushion a more severe economic downturn. Join leading economists as they discuss the global economic outlook for the coming months.

Bond market recovery boosts demand for bond ETFs

A weak economy combined with expectations of an end to the policy of interest rate hikes have again fostered a market environment favourable for bonds. Bond ETFs have regained significance as an attractive alternative to stocks. Looking ahead, central bank monetary policy will determine whether a bond rally is imminent. Our market experts will discuss which bond ETFs could benefit from a longer-term bond market recovery.

Multi asset- & multi factor strategies: how to apply ETFs as effective investment instruments in times of high volatility

For investors expecting a continuously turbulent market environment, spreading their portfolio across several asset classes, or applying defensive factor strategies can be sensible. ETFs are a suitable investment vehicle for simple and cost-effective implementation. We will present ETFs that offer access to factor strategies as well as multi-asset approaches.

The future of the crypto market after the insolvency of crypto exchange FTX: technological benefit or pure speculation?  

We’d be hard pressed to name another asset class that caused more headlines in recent months than crypto. Following the collapse of crypto project Terra and the crypto exchange FTX, the industry is facing high regulatory pressure. Against this backdrop, many investors are questioning the future investment case for cryptocurrencies and the weight the still-young asset class should have in a balanced portfolio allocation. These topics will be the focus of our panel.
