Last year was dominated by interest rate concerns and the utter superiority of equity returns, in particular the oft referenced ‘magnificent seven’. As we move through 2024, equities continue to deliver, albeit in a less concentrated manner, and for the first time in years, bonds and cash are viable, realistic options for fund managers. But what does this mean for you and your clients? How have the active fund managers at Zurich Investments adjusted to this new investment landscape and what are they doing to ensure that they continue to deliver appropriate multi-asset returns?

Join David Warren, Chief Investment Officer and the team at Zurich Investments on the 2nd of May for our annual Investment Conference where we will delve into the factors that are driving investment markets today. Attendance at this conference (whether in-person or via a virtual link) is the best opportunity you will get to hear first-hand from the key decision makers on the management of your clients investment funds, the foundation of their retirement, investment and savings plans.
