  • Generation ETFs: S3E14 - COVID-19

    Generation ETFs: S3E14 - COVID-19

    Global equity markets have now experienced one of the most rapid and worst sell offs since the global financial crisis of 2008. It seems that much of this sell off has been driven by fears about the global spread of the COVID-19 virus, and its potential to grind the global economy to a halt. In this episode of Generation ETFs, Candice Bangsund of Fiera Capital provides us with a global macro update and provides a few key reasons that despite the markets looking dire, long-term, the global economic expansion will likely continue if and when fears about the COVID-19 virus subside.

    Panel discussion with Alternatives Portfolio Managers

    James Burron (CAASA) moderates a panel featuring Michael Schnitman (Mackenzie Investments), Brian D'Costa (Algonquin Capital),  and Bill DeRoche (AGF). This discussion amongst veterans in the Alternatives category will provide color around their current views and expectations, as well as the place and the case for ALTs - which if anything, 2020 probably served to emphasize. Diversification is still one of the only free lunches in finance - and well put together ALTs can help in that regard ...

  • What's Next For Preferred Shares?

    What's Next For Preferred Shares?

    This webinar features Fiera Capital’s Nicolas Normandeau who oversees the portfolio management of the Horizons Active Preferred Share ETF (TSX: HPR), currently the largest actively managed preferred share ETF listed in Canada by assets under management (Source: Morningstar, as at June 30, 2021).

    With the introduction of new debt vehicles like Limited Recourse Capital Notes —increasingly replacing preferred shares as the instrument of choice — the fixed income market has changed considerably.

    Hybrid securities such as preferred shares, hybrid bonds and LRCNs, which pay out a floating rate of yield, are benefitting from the upward pressure on interest rates. Mr. Normandeau goes through his outlook on the fixed income market and his views on preferred shares for the remainder of 2021 and beyond. This webinar covers: - Preferred Shares: Then and Now - What are Limited Recourse Capital Notes? - The Outlook for Preferred Shares - Portfolio Positioning in the face of COVID-19 and Volatility
