Mr Song Seng Wun

Keynote: Micro economic outlook- Too low for too long.

2016 is set to be the 5th consecutive year of below trend global trade volume growth. Brexit has fuel worries but not sparked systemic panic that could cause another financial or global recession. The risks of a hard landing of China economy are real, but it is a low probability event. Geo-political risks still high in Middle East, East/South China Seas, North Africa and Europe. As we head into end-2016, financial markets may stay volatile because of the divisive US Presidential election. Below trend global growth may persist into 2017. Hence, the headwinds for the Singapore economy continue to be severe, as the export-dependent economy awaits the pickup in global demand.

Where are the opportunities or other risks that investors should be looking out for? Mr Song will discuss these and more.

Mr Song holds a Master of Arts in Econometrics from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. He started his career as an economist in Malayan Banking Bhd in Kuala Lumpur. In the early 1990's, he moved to Singapore and worked as a Regional Economist with various major multi-national financial institutions such as Merrill Lynch; Warburg Dillon Read as well as ABN Amro. Mr Song areas of focus are in the economies of ASEAN-5. He is a familiar icon in South-East Asia's news media as he has greatly contributed his professional views on the regional financial markets.

Jake Damien Chow

Factor based Investing: Dynamic portfolio construction using Factors

Factor investing involves breaking down securities into their fundamental drivers to create a more precise and balanced portfolio. Factor investing is a development grounded in academic research that began in the 1960s and has its roots in the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), which introduced the relationship between risk and expected returns. There is also strong empirical evidence that factors performed differently over various parts of the business cycle, so how do you create a portfolio to meet your investment objectives?

In this session, I will using a Strategic (Core) and Tactical (Satellite) framework to demonstrate and discuss the appropriate factor allocation mix in constructing portfolios based on one’s time horizon and risk tolerance.

Jake is currently market strategist with CIMB research. He specialises in technical analysis and is a strong proponent of systematic (rule-based) trading. He tracks global macro data; capital flows and conducts quantitative research to generate trading/investment ideas. Research interests include portfolio management, global macro/risk parity/quantitative trading strategies, asset relationships (inter-market, sector rotation and relative-strength analysis), system development and testing, algorithmic trading and behavioural finance.  Jake earned a Bachelor of Business majoring in Economics and Finance from RMIT University in Melbourne. He is a Chartered Market Technician (CMT) and a member of the Market Technicians Association (MTA).
