Navigating the current investment environment with increasing volatility and changing interest rates can be difficult. Jonathan Needham, VP & Director, Lead of ETF Distribution for TDAM will provide an overview on the risk and return characteristics of real estate and infrastructure and how they combine to create a compelling asset class for inclusion in a diversified portfolio. Whether it is multi-family real estate, industrial real estate, logistics centers, commodity infrastructure, or renewable energy; the long-term, contracted and inflation-linked cash flows can provide strong diversification potential against more volatile assets, and value protection in an inflationary environment versus traditional fixed income and equities.

The presentation will focus the current economic forces that impact markets. It will discuss, among other topics, the impact of the geopolitical situation on overall economic activity, the tug of war between the virus and the economy, inflationary pressures and their impact in the trajectory of interest rates and asset allocation.
No doubt you have already read many articles telling you how high inflation and an inverted yield curve have foreshadowed every recession in modern history. There is some truth to that. But there is also some fiction. 40-year investment veteran Steve Reitmeister will share with you his insights on this pressing matter along with his trading plan to stay one step ahead of the market.

Learn the macroeconomic reasons and tax benefits of investing in commercial real estate such as multi-family, industrial, mixed-use, and vacation home developments. Each property type has unique investment characteristics that investors can benefit from, as well as the tax advantages that direct real estate investing provides. Active real estate investors can now retire from the day-to-day headaches of managing investment property and invest in institutional properties on a passive basis alongside a seasoned real estate development company. These investments can be done through a 1031 exchange or by a direct investment with an IRA or after-tax money.

In the wake of the Global Financial Crisis, Central Banks worked in concert, printing trillions of dollars and suppressing interest rates in order to push investors out the risk curve, warding off a deflationary spiral. Their efforts worked. For a dozen years volatility remained low, inflation (both ways) remain contained and stock indices thrived. As if you need any more convincing than the past 2 years offers, this has all changed. Now we have no idea what comes next, but we can say (backed by a large body of statistical evidence) is that trend trading strategies have proved useful in protecting a typical investor's portfolio of stocks and bonds during uncertain times.
We will quickly define what a trend is, and through our academic project to publish transparent CTA trend performance explain some of the methods used by large money managers.

There are no sure-shot techniques for market forecasting and analysis. If one were developed, it wouldn’t work for long, since as everyone applied it, its foundation would change significantly. There’s an excess of data in the world today, so the trick is to spot the one or two key variables in a specific time. They could be Fed policy, consumer behavior, foreign trade wars, etc. Any these factors could change, sometimes several times, throughout the year. That’s why it’s important to keep up with market news and the ever-changing conditions. For a framework to add value, it must entail market-moving events that have a good chance of occurring, but are not yet within the consensus.

Research has consistently shown that Investors are more surprised by bear than bull markets, and economic and financial market downturns unfold faster than upswings. Successful investing entails studying varying perspectives, then folding in history, experiences, hunches—and great timing. The goal is to identify the significant but undiscounted aspects of the outlook. This is where the true opportunities for investors lie and where our experts excel.

We feature more than just stock market news. Our expert contributors are renowned investing and trading veterans who have survived—and thrived—in all kinds of market conditions and they share in-depth intelligence about the markets and the catalysts driving them to help you chart your path to growth and prosperity in any market environment.
