Putting index strategies at the heart of asset allocation

An exclusive briefing hosted by FinanceAsia and FTSE Russell in Singapore explored how index solutions can be powerful tools for investors seeking risk-adjusted returns amidst dynamic and unpredictable markets. Hear from FTSE Russell and other industry experts as they look at global opportunities across Asean, the Middle East, the US, as well as alternatives such as digital assets via index-linked products, and how they fit in a global portfolio.


Please view highlights from the event.


Riding Asean's growth wave via index-linked products

Various factors are driving Asean’s growth story and creating enticing investment opportunities — from long-term trends such as sustainability, digitalisation, and regional economic integration, to short-term ones including global manufacturing and trade. In all cases, Geoff Howie (market strategist, SGX) and Emerald Yau (head of equity index product management, Apac, FTSE Russell) share how ETFs offer an effective way to capitalise on Asean's potential.


Using index-linked products as a gateway to Saudi Arabia 

Saudi Arabia tells a story of change. As the traditional oil-dependent GCC nation moves toward a more diversified and modern economy, Bruce Zhang (portfolio manager, CSOP Asset Management) and Zhu Liu (director, index investments group, FTSE Russell) unpacks new opportunities that have emerged in Saudi Arabia’s equity market, and why it has become a more appealing destination for investors.


Finding the right benchmark for US equities

Accuracy and predictability have been among the key differentiators of the Russell US indexes over its 40 year history. So what is behind the Russell US index design, and why is it a better benchmark for US large caps stocks? Emerald Yau (head of equity index product management, Apac, FTSE Russell) shares more.


Dispelling the crypto myth

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are likely to play a larger role within portfolios going forward. Hear from Jupiter Zheng (partner of liquid funds and research, HashKey Capital) and Jean Kua (manager, index investments group, FTSE Russell) as they uncover key drivers and risks in the digital asset market, and how index providers can help navigate this asset class and address some of its challenges.
