Market shrugs off Fed's 'bland' comments on economy as it awaits Yellen replacement

The markets shrugged off the Fed's statement on Wednesday that suggested it was on track to hike raise interest rates in December, though it provided no new clues other than to sound more confident about the economy... 

"They didn't really raise any alarm bells," said Ed Keon, managing director and portfolio manager at QMA, a unit of PGIM. "They basically just kept it simple and straight forward."

"There's a certain benefit to a steady hand on the tiller, and they decided this is not a month to make news. This is a month to reassure that we're going to do what we said we're going to do," Keon said.

Women Executives: C-Suites Insight: David Hunt

PGIM President and CEO David Hunt discussed the need to correctly understand the ‘active-passive’ debate in a recent interview with Ellen Kinlin, CEO of the Kinlin Company, for her Women Executives C-Suite Insights blog. Hunt said, “Our active strategies are designed to work in an investor’s portfolio in such a way that they complement a selection of more easily accessible beta, which we believe also plays a role in many investors’ portfolios. In other words, this is a question of how alpha and beta should work together — and not a question of one or the other.” Hunt also discussed the role of alternatives in a portfolio, along with the need for increased diversity within the investment management industry.
