Webinar: Unlocking the Potential of Asia Fixed Income - with Schroders and Eastspring Investments

This webinar is brought to you by Endowus in partnership with Eastspring Investments and Schroders.

About the session

Central banks worldwide have tightened monetary policy and adopted an aggressive stance to combat persistent inflation. 

Against this backdrop, new opportunities in fixed income have emerged this year. In particular, Asia fixed income presents a potentially interesting building block for an investor’s portfolio strategy. The market has grown significantly in size and sophistication, and provides exposure to macroeconomic dynamics different from those of the West.

Endowus warmly invites you to an exclusive webinar with experts from leading fund managers — Shilpa Singhal, Credit Portfolio Manager, Asian Fixed Income, Singapore, Schroders; and Danny Tan, Head of Fixed Income, Eastspring Investments — as well as Yulin Liu, Investment Lead, Endowus, as they discuss why investors are optimistic on Asia fixed income, and which parts of the Asia bond markets stand out.

  1. An overview of the Asian bond market
  2. Outlook for the Asian bond market for 2023 and beyond
  3. Which sectors and geographies present more attractive opportunities for Asian fixed income investors  
  4. How to navigate the risk factors in Asia fixed income
  5. How does Asian fixed income fit in an investor’s total portfolio strategy?

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