themes.

The aftermath of the global financial crisis has created a new paradigm in fixed income, posing far-reaching challenges for investors. Low or negative yields in key bond markets mean searching for yield is a key concern for investors. And with the very nature of bonds now altered, investors are forced to rethink asset allocation. In their search for yield we believe investors should consider taking more credit risk and explore emerging market debt

Indeed, our positivity on emerging markets extends also to equities, where we believe increased economic strength is not fully captured in asset valuations; similarly, european equities are also an attractive destination for investors, in our view. Regardless of the asset class, investors are increasingly taking into account extra-financial considerations – seeking to invest with impact – but they must look for the right expertise or risk their capital being put to work in a way they did not intend.

Federal Reserve Meeting – Balance-Sheet Mixes with Fed Rates

While investors widely expect the Federal Reserve (‘FOMC’) to leave interest rate policy unchanged this week at between 1.00% and 1.25%, most anticipate the Committee will announce the start of the reversal of quantitative easing and the reduction of its $4.4trillion balance sheet, given the highly publicised journey taken towards this point and Yellen’s recent speech at Jackson Hole. 

As expected, the Monetary Policy Committee (‘MPC’) of the Bank of England kept its policy rate at 0.25% by a vote of 7-2 and the other parameters of monetary policy unchanged.
