Investing today seems even more challenging with a slowing global economy and trade tensions. Market expectations have swung from rising interest rates last year to fears of falling rates this year. Will the Market Cycle End or Extend? UBS CIO team and global experts addressed these key questions on investors' minds at UBS Wealth Insights Mid-Year Outlook 2019 in Singapore on Monday, 8 July. Our CIO noted that while the cycle is likely to extend for longer, increased volatility will be a hallmark of late cycle investing.
Long term opportunities were covered in Investing Beyond the Cycle topics - The Future of Food, Sustainable Investing and the Greater Bay Area (GBA) in China. Sustainable Investing is not philanthropy was highlighted by our speakers, with a growing body of evidence that ESG matters in stock selection. Companies that can solve the world’s challenges with innovative solutions will likely benefit in the years ahead.
