‘An appropriate place of paranoia’: fundies prepare for stormy weather

Investors are now fretting a recession to go along with a more volatile geopolitical outlook. But on that prospect, it’s the cooler-headed fundies that will prevail. One thing that’s obvious from the last few weeks of market movements is that fear is running things again. Inflation and rate rises have given way to talk of…

Citi flexes post-RBC muscles in a time of ‘chunky winners and losers’

Custody competition in Australia is heating up as super funds disappear in a flurry of merger activity. But with the RBC transaction catapulting it up the ACSA tables, Citi says it’s ready to take on all comers. “If you’re not able to keep up, you slide into irrelevance,” says Okan Pekin, global head of securities…

Turn and face the change: a better future for super?

The last nine years of government have been characterised by a deep-seated suspicion of the country’s largest investors. But with Labor back in power, the super wars are almost certainly over. Labor’s election victory over the weekend arrives at a curious inflection point for Australia’s profit-to-member super funds. The last time Labor held government, in…

Martin Carpenter to retire (from banking)

Martin Carpenter’s “fantastic career” as Citi’s local head of securities services will draw to a close later this year. He’s got no set destination in mind, but there’s still plenty of travel on the cards. Carpenter’s 13-year stint as the head of Citi Securities Services for Australasia will conclude in the third quarter of 2022….

Crypto a no-go for instos: PGIM

Institutions have another reason to resist the siren song of cryptocurrencies, with new research from PGIM refuting many of the arguments in favour of holding the highly volatile asset class. PGIM believes that, beyond hedge exploiting inefficiencies to generate alpha on the other side of FOMO flows, “there is currently no compelling case for direct…

  • Why emerging markets will ride a multi-decade tailwind

    As the emerging markets grow more economically and financially liberal, managers are unlocking a “panoply” of opportunities outside the traditional darlings of the asset class. “We all probably wanted to be the first investor into East Germany when it opened up,” says Marshall Stocker, co-director of emerging markets at Morgan Stanley Investment Management. “We’re trying…

    Unpredictable, not uninvestable: emerging markets no lost Paradice

    As Paradice’s emerging market equities strategy hits its three-year anniversary, the outlook for the asset class has never been more uncertain. But the local institutional appetite is voracious. From Covid to Common Prosperity, emerging markets have been roiled by upheaval in the last two years. And Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sent global markets into the…

    Morrison revives super’s wicked problem

    Once a stalking horse for a small cabal of noisy backbenchers, “Home First, Super Second” has found its way into the Coalition’s policy arsenal ahead of an unpredictable election. It was perhaps premature to write, in late March, that the super wars were over. Scott Morrison’s announcement on Sunday that first home buyers would be…

    ‘Nuance gets ignored’: why exclusion won’t help super on climate

    The emissions intensity of the ASX has some investors with a home country bias looking for an exclusionary approach. But decarbonising Aussie equities isn’t as simple as ditching them. Compared to other indices, the ASX is dirty. A large number of listed companies in pollutive industries like resources and energy means its emissions intensity is…

    ‘You need to think with a fresh sheet of paper’: super grapples with size

    As the super funds race towards massive size, the sector is still grappling with the positives and negatives for investments and culture. The age of the giga-fund will soon be upon us, coming right on the heels of the age of the mega-fund. But for the industry’s race towards massive size, the benefits of massive…
