BUILD: CIP Strategies

Centralised investment propositions (CIPs) are a core part of most advice propositions. In theory, having set, repeatable processes for client investment selection means firms can ensure consistency of advice across all their advisers, create business efficiencies, and deliver better client outcomes. Join us for a morning of learning where the experts will showcase their knowledge on all things CIPs.


Flexible Bond Strategies in New Interest Rate Paradigm – PIMCO

The recent cycle of rate hikes has ushered in a new era for bond markets and interest rates, presenting both challenges and opportunities for investors and financial advisers. With bond yields reaching levels not seen in over a decade, there’s a need for a reassessment of investment strategies and portfolios. Financial advisers must navigate this changed landscape, balancing the appeal of increased bond yields with careful risk assessment.

In this session, PIMCO’s Fixed Income Strategist, Gordon Harding, will discuss the importance of adaptability and flexibility in this new paradigm, touching upon how PIMCO’s GIS Income Fund offers a balanced multisector approach to provide consistent income and capitalise on higher yields and potential price appreciation, while remaining resilient in uncertain economic times.
