Key investment views | Traditional asset classes

Key positions remain unchanged from six months ago: positive on equities, cautious on developed world government bonds. We have a new exposure to local Chinese bonds.

  • Our views remain largely unchanged. We retain a positive view of global equities in aggregate and a cautious view of global fixed income in a rising yield environment.
  • Within equities, we downgraded to neutral our expectations for Eurozone equities as we believe the return of more significant geopolitical risks in the shape of Brexit and the Italian populist government are likely to limit the upside in the short-term. 
  • Within fixed income, we have included a standalone position in an asset class that is likely to garner significant focus as 2019 progresses: Chinese bonds.
