In a volatile uncertain environment, we believe dynamism is required. Breaking traditional asset-class definitions could be the key to successful performance.
Investors are facing an era of increased uncertainty and elevated volatility among global risk assets. This foreboding environment is the combined result of recent global trade discord, diverging (and faltering) economic growth profiles, rising domestic political stress and valuations at the tighter end of their range.
As these uncertainties intensify, static investment decisions, which are more reliant on market beta, are likely to become increasingly vulnerable.
To tackle this, we believe a more dynamic approach is required; having a toolkit flexible enough to successfully navigate this changing backdrop, combined with investment parameters less constrained by asset-class definitions or regional biases, is what we believe will provide the best chance of achieving successful investment performance over the medium term.
