Panorama: Investing in 2019

In this edition of Panorama we assess the global investment landscape and the potential challenges and opportunities facing investors in the year ahead.

In our views, investors are likely to face some significant challenges in 2019. They will need to think differently, be more precise in risk-budgeting, and work harder for risk-adjusted returns than they have done for the majority of the post-financial crisis period. Flexibility and staying nimble are likely to be important qualities as opportunities and dislocations ebb and flow both across and within asset classes.
