Uncertainty risk from the coronavirus continues through 2021, with many institutional investors approaching the market with caution, and challenges abound. Strong stimulus and vaccine rollouts have led to record asset valuations. The gap between the capital markets and real markets has widened. Historical low-interest rates have made bond investments unattractive and high-valued stock markets intimidate investors. And restrictions on on-site due diligence continues to suppress overseas alternative investment. Those factors restrain new investment execution and portfolios rebalancing, resulting in unstable and unbalanced portfolios.
14th Institutional Investment Week Korea will show how Korean investors should rebalance their portfolios, build resilience within their investment strategies. It will also explore how asset owners should plan out their asset allocation and portfolio strategies under several different scenarios. Lastly, it will discuss ESG integration, and technology applications in portfolio composition.
