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 searching for yield should consider taking more credit risk and explore emerging market debt

Indeed, our positivity on emerging markets extends 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.

Bank of England monetary policy: striking a delicate balance

As expected, the Monetary Policy Committee (‘MPC’) of the Bank of England increased its policy rate by 25bp to 0.50% by a vote of 7-2 and left the other parameters of monetary policy unchanged. The tone of the Bank of England’s communication was, in our view, relatively balanced, saying that “any future increases in Bank Rate would be expected to be at a gradual pace and to a limited extent”. 

As widely expected, the Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged yesterday, and the overall statement accompanying its November meeting was broadly in-line with the one released in September.
