Real Return Investing with Rob Arnott

Presented by Rob Arnott

Monday, April 15, 2013, 11:30am – 1:30pm

Co-Chairs: Todd McGinley and Ricardo Calderon

Extremes in global monetary policies and sovereign indebtedness are driving increased risk of higher inflation, lower growth and greater market volatility. These realities create headwinds for traditional allocation approaches, which are based on two "pillars" - mainstream stocks and bonds. Please join Rob Arnott, founder and chairman of Research Affiliates and subadvisor to PIMCO's All Asset and All Asset All Authority Funds, for a discussion on how to create a potentially more effective third "pillar" designed to better meet investors' return and risk objective in a reflationary New Normal world. Specifically, Mr. Arnott will discuss Research Affiliates' economic outlook, the implications across asset classes and current positioning in both All Asset strategies.
