Inflation: The 10th medirectalk event

MeDirect Bank is organising its tenth medirectalk investment webinar which will be discussing inflation and what we should do about it. The event will take place online, on Thursday 2nd December 2021 at 18.00hrs and is free of charge.  

The upcoming medirectalk is organised by MeDirect Bank Malta, together with Morningstar. Investor focus has shifted from recession to inflation over the past year, as the vaccine rollouts and huge government support supercharge a global economic recovery. So, are we now entering a new era of high inflation? Is this a structural shift which will erode the real wealth of your asset base? And how do you prepare a multi-asset portfolio for such uncertainty? Morningstar Investment Management’s EMEA Chief Investment Officer, Mike Coop, discusses the threat of inflation and the potential dangers facing clients.

Mike Coop has deep experience in multi-asset investing, represents the embodiment of our investment principles, and has an obvious passion for delivering great returns to end investors. Since joining the team, he has worked tirelessly with the leaders of our investment team across the world to ensure that our process remains at the leading edge of developments in multi-asset portfolio management.

Mike Coop has been appointed as Chief Investment Officer of Morningstar Investment Management in July. In his role, Mike Coop is responsible for leading the region’s investment management team and working with advisers and institutions to deliver investment solutions. He joined Morningstar IM Europe as head of multi-asset portfolio management in 2017 and will continue to oversee this offering as part of his new role.

Morningstar, Inc. is a leading provider of independent investment research in North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. The company offers an extensive line of products and services for individual investors, financial advisors, asset managers, retirement plan providers and sponsors, and institutional investors in the debt and private capital markets.

Morningstar also offers investment management services through its investment advisory subsidiaries, with over $250 billion in assets under advisement and management as of June 30, 2021.

The session will be an interactive one, and participants will be invited to ask their questions during a 15-minute Q&A session with Mike Coop. Questions can be submitted via the online platform during the event or sent in advance to registrations@medirect.com.mt.
