World Today Discussion Series on the “Coronavirus and Its Global Impact” – A continuation of the discussion from a socio-economic and public health perspective

Join the Center for Global Management (CGM) and Professor Sebastian Edwards, in a moderated discussion with UCLA Anderson visiting professor and former minister in the Hong Kong SAR Government Christine Loh and Dr. Robert Kim-Farley who holds joint appointments in the departments of epidemiology and community health sciences at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. As a follow up to the discussion on February 25th ( watch video), they will gather virtually to continue the conversation on the COVID-19 pandemic and its global impact from a socio-economic, business and public health perspective. While there is little certainty on what will happen next and when the virus will be contained, panelists will address the broader issues surrounding the pandemic. They will examine how the role of governments has expanded to deal with the virus; how COVID-19 could devastate many economies; and how the public health community is responding locally and globally. They will also share their longer term views on what the economic impact will be for the United States and globally and seek to explain how COVID-19 will not only have lasting effects on society and people’s behavior, but it will also alter the structure of global business. This event is in recognition of the Wilbur K. Woo Greater China Business Conference and brought to you by the UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. Open to UCLA students, alumni, faculty, staff and members of the extended UCLA community and general public.

World Today Discussion Series on “Managing A Large Multi-Dollar Global Portfolio Amid COVID-19 Volatility” – The Perspective of a Chief Investment Officer

The COVID-19 pandemic – and the global response to it – is a serious threat not only to global health, but to communities, economies and investments. Institutional investors and other private fund investors are considering the economic exposure to their investments from operational disruptions as a result of the pandemic. Join the Center for Global Management (CGM) and its board chair Craig Ehrlich (B.A. ’78), chair-elect of the UCLA Foundation for a moderated discussion with Justin Barton, president and chief investment officer of the UCLA Investment Company, responsible for the management of the UCLA Foundation’s ~$2.5 billion endowment fund - a global, multi-asset portfolio. Balancing the right number of relationships to create a global, multi-asset class portfolio that is not overly diversified is a persistent challenge in normal times. Barton will address the key issues faced by institutional investors amid COVID-19 volatility; examine what institutional investors should focus on with respect to internal governance; and address the broad scope of legal issues brought on by this public health challenge. Barton will also identify some of the elements that make for successful long-term investment partnerships during this highly complex environment and share his longer-term view on the crisis and the broader questions it raises on how our financial system is structured to respond to such threats. Co-sponsored by the UCLA Anderson Laurence & Lori Fink Center for Finance. Open to UCLA Anderson students, faculty and alumni.
