Whilst financial market performance during the first quarter of 2020 was overawed by the global economic impact of COVID-19, markets over 2019 were buoyant, with equity indices hitting record highs and gilt yields falling to record lows. A recent survey by XPS presents a holistic analysis of growth portfolios over 2019 and Q1 2020, identifying who capitalised on the market conditions, but more importantly how they went about it.
What you’ll learn
- Review the current market backdrop and how this is impacting scheme funding levels;
- Illustrate the different investment approaches used to deliver returns within their growth portfolios;
