Testomonials from the 2014 Bond Focus event
A great way to meet eight managers in a single day
Tom Berger, Equitable Life
Great event, fixed income is the biggest question most portfolio managers have, how to position going forward. The funds and main economic insights have been very diverse and extremely useful
Charlotte Watson, Attivo Group
Great to hear from a broad spread of managers, particulary those I was less familiar with
Andrew Birt, Saunderson House Ltd
Seamlessly organised event and very beneficial
Denise Collins, City Asset Management
This is by far the better event with a very good diversified array of speakers and topics on fixed income
Victoria Davies, T Bailey Asset Management
Very enjoyable, well run event, thanks!

Investment Week is pleased to present our Bond Focus event taking place on 10th July 2014. We will once again be showcasing a range of strategies for investors in this asset class.
Fixed income markets experienced a painful sell-off in 2013, with outflows continuing so far this year, but as a result there are now a lot of opportunities across bond markets for savvy investors. Yields have risen and remain elevated compared to the period directly after the financial crisis, providing opportunities for managers of corporate, strategic and high yield bond funds to generate an income well above inflation for investors.
The unresolved problems in the eurozone crisis, and a slowdown of growth in China and emerging markets, mean further periods of panic cannot be ruled out. Therefore, keeping an eye on clients' exposure to fixed income markets remains key for advisers looking to provide a balanced portfolio for clients.
Our conference will provide the latest insight on the evolving fixed income market, highlighting the opportunities - and the risks - after a period of major upheaval.
Our boardroom sessions allow delegates to quiz the fund managers, whilst the breaks and lunches enable networking with fellow investors.
