Our outlook Preference for U.S. equities, emerging market equities and U.S. investment grade corporates

Financial markets reacted intensely for a few days after the U.K. opted for a historical split from the rest of Europe, but then quickly stabilized. While many investors are breathing a sigh of relief after the experience, we ask what it might take to see a potential bright side to the much-discussed vote. Clearly, there are important lessons to be learned and insights to be gained from Brexit that can help you position your portfolio for a changing world.

CIO Wealth Management Research outlines some important perspectives in its latest edition of UBS House View (PDF, 2 MB):

  1. While many feared the U.K. vote would represent a major setback for global markets, there have been price gains across the risk spectrum
  2. The global economy matters more today than ever, as countries look to engage in more growth-friendly policies
  3. A well-diversified portfolio is becoming increasingly important to combat volatility, especially with a critical presidential election ahead

To understand how to best incorporate these insights into your own investment strategy, connect with your UBS Financial Advisor or find one.
