About the session

With the S&P 500 index continuing its dominance of global equity markets and clinching its best start to the year since 2019, sentiment has been increasingly divided among investors, moving between optimism about a sustained rally and concerns that the market is approaching a peak and “imminent” pullback. Investors are left concerned on how to think about their exposures and portfolio allocations.

Is now the right time to invest? Why should I own anything other than the S&P 500 in my portfolio? How do market events, such as the upcoming US elections, affect my portfolio and investments? What does financial science and data have to say about the current market environment relative to history and how can investors use that information to increase the odds of their long-term investing success?

Endowus warmly invites you to an evening with Apollo Lupescu, Vice President from Dimensional Fund Advisors and Yulin Liu, Investment Lead at Endowus to help put all these things into perspective. Find out how global equity and bond investors can optimise their portfolios amid this interesting time, as the speakers discuss:

  • What every investor should know when investing during market highs
  • The importance of a globally diversified approach to investing, specifically in the face of a single market’s continued dominance
  • How to avoid the most common mistakes retail investors make
  • Evidence-based investing and the real difference between trying to outguess, tracking, and trusting the market
  • Dimensional Fund Advisors and evidence-based investing in practice

There will be a Q&A segment at the end of the session. Submit your questions ahead of time here.
