Speaking about the event, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, managing director/chief executive officer of Coronation Asset Management, said: “The webinar will focus on a review of how market interest rates have affected Fixed Income returns over the past two years and how it has been possible to increase returns by also holding selected equities in a balanced fund.
