CPBI Pacific: Will 2020 be the Year of the Bear or Bull?


Session description
After an incredible 10 year bull run, can markets still go higher or is 2020 the year to see markets retreat? Sadiq Adatia will walk through U.S. politics including impeachment and elections, discuss his concerns about Canada and international markets, and provide insight as to why there may be some opportunity in emerging economies.
Sadiq S. Adatia
Chief Investment Officer
Sun Life Global Investments Canada
As Chief Investment Officer, Sadiq S. Adatia manages Sun Life Global Investment’s Portfolio Management Team which offers investors leading asset management solutions from around the world. Sadiq joined Sun Life Global Investments in 2011, just a year after the company’s launch. He brought with him strong expertise in managed solutions and tactical asset allocation and led the investment team as he further developed the company’s product lineup.

From the outset, his investment strategy has focused squarely on managing investment risk while still pursuing the growth investors are looking for. It’s a strategy that has been widely embraced, with Sadiq’s team overseeing more than $17 billion today.

Sadiq’s investment knowledge is also sought after in the broader investment community, and is frequently asked by media outlets like CNBC, BNN, CBC, Bloomberg and Reuters for his insights. He also travels extensively across Canada, meeting with advisors, consultants, investors, plan sponsors and companies to discuss the markets and world economy.

This session will continue CPBI Pacific's tradition of presenting an annual economic outlook/investment update to give participants an indication of what to expect in the year ahead.
