Strategies in Focus

Never before have investors faced such daunting challenges. Finding the right answers can be taxing. We’ve defined five relevant investment themes and assigned a few of our investment solutions to each of them to make it easier for you to overcome these challenges.

Opportunities in emerging markets

Opportunities in emerging markets

Are emerging markets vulnerable to US and developed world central bank policy, or are they backed by sufficiently powerful secular forces to suggest that the benign environment of the past year may only be the start of a longer-term positive trend, underpinned by strengthening commodity prices and stabilizing global growth?

Low yield

Low yield

Low yields have presented a significant challenge to investors for a number of years. Outside the US, global growth and inflation expectations remain stuck at low levels and a large number of benchmark government bond yields remain in only slightly positive territory.

Navigating disruptive markets

Navigating disruptive markets

For much of the seven years following the financial crisis, risk-adjusted returns across asset classes were exceptionally high in a long-term historical context. Accommodative monetary policies provided a permanent tailwind. However, the lowerfor-longer environment created global uncertainty, which we expect to sporadically, rather than permanently, cause higher market volatility going forward.

Sustainable investing

Sustainable investing

Sustainable investing has evolved from screening out objectionable investments to a modern approach which seeks to create excess returns by investing in attractively valued companies seen as leaders in their field. Sustainable companies achieve this by proactively creating shared value not only with their shareholders and customers, but often with their employees and the broader society too.

Since US President-Elect Donald Trump’s election, investors worldwide have been pre-occupied by his plans. Clients have been interested in understanding what the impact of the new US administration’s agenda would be, on financial markets. The announced tax cuts and the government’s economic stimulus measures will no doubt alter the market environment. What impact will this have on both the developed and emerging markets?

In this edition, we also provide you our assessments of the key investment categories in the still-new investment year 2017. We are confident that we can put our global expertise to use in helping you find the solutions to your challenges.
