Finding opportunities in a post pandemic world

The world has changed. We have all been impacted by the global pandemic - from the freedom to move through society without restrictions, to the way we work and interact. The major shifts in society have introduced many uncertainties into our familiar structures, and across business and society. The recovery from this crisis, the scope and scale of which is ahead, hasn’t been attempted in our lifetimes - and it’s complicated to have to navigate rapidly-changing government mandates, fragile supply networks and clients concerned about their health and safety.

At Fidelity, we look at every challenge as an opportunity. We believe that the Covid-19 crisis will accelerate existing trends and transform investment frameworks. Watch our on demand series as we explore how government intervention, fiscal activism, corporate governance and sustainability, along with continued Asian economic strength will create investment opportunities.

What now for markets and investors?

The changing global and economic landscape

Paras Anand gives you an in-depth look at how the geopolitical and global economic landscape is shaping portfolios and give you key insights to use with your clients.

The emergence of resilience

The pandemic forced a global shut down. Companies had to adapt, pivot or reinvent themselves to survive. The result of this is the emergence of resilience on the global stage. Resilience is on the agenda for corporates and governments. We explore this theme and discuss what impact this will have going forward.

Why sustainable investing is becoming the new norm and why you should be interested

In this presentation, Jenn-Hui discusses how sustainable investing is becoming fundamental investing at Fidelity, how the team are engaging with companies to ensure positive change is made to environmental, social and governance practices.

Sustainable investing at work: Case studies
