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. And on a global level, long-lasting trends such as population ageing create compelling opportunities for discerning investors, in our view.

Regardless of the asset class, investors are increasingly taking into account extra-financial considerations – seeking to invest responsibly – but they must look for the right expertise or risk their capital being put to work in a way they did not intend.

The “Old Economy” strikes back

Oil prices are currently subject to spike risk. As geopolitical risk continues to build in the Middle East and supply-side dynamics remain relatively constrained, we believe the oil price could rise significantly in the coming weeks as the “Old Economy” strikes back.
