Alternatives in Fixed Income & Flexible Investing

In an environment where the intervention of the Central Banks has led to the yields of a large part of the fixed income to minimum or negative values ​​and the valuations of the variable income do not seem especially attractive under different metrics given the low growth scenario in which we are installed it is necessary to search for alternatives.

In a meeting with five first level managers we will have the opportunity to learn about new strategies and some of their best investment alternatives for the present time. Several of them are practically unprecedented in the Spanish market and we are sure that they are destined to become successful funds within their categories.

We will open the event with a round table where several of the best Iberian stockbrokers of the national scene will defend if an asset so punished and close represents an opportunity and we will discuss what can be the best way to approach it.

The conference was held on  November 17, 2016  at the Hotel InterContinental Madrid (Paseo de la Castellana, 49)
