Asset Allocation Quarterly

So far so good, but markets underestimate risks

September 10, 2018

Asset allocation – September 2018

SUMMARY: US equities continued to outperform other markets such as EMU and EM equities. This partly reflects the divergence between the US economy -which is supported by fiscal expansion and a patient Federal Reserve- and relatively weaker growth in the eurozone and EM. But there is more to this divergence than faster US economic growth. The US equity rally has been led by the IT sector. This has accounted for 20%-50% of US equity returns since 2016. The rally is now looking stretched on various metrics. The other salient development in August was renewed stress in emerging markets (EM). A combination of economic stress in Turkey, weaker growth in China, Sino-US trade tensions and a stronger US dollar hurt EM assets. We believe there is value in EM assets, but the obvious circuit-breakers are still absent: a weaker USD, aggressive China stimulus and fresh Sino-US trade talks. EM assets prospects have soured and protectionism and tighter liquidity continue to cloud their longer-term prospects.

Asset allocation quarterly – July 2018

Foreseeing calmer markets over the next few months, we have identified several reversal themes

June 27, 2018

Asset allocation flash – 25 June 2018

SUMMARY: Despite trade tensions, concerns about global growth and more volatile markets than in 2017, our base case scenario remains one of robust global growth and contained inflation. This underpins our bullish view on equities, with a preference for eurozone equities where we see positive earnings growth prospects and room for margin expansion

June 8, 2018

Asset allocation – June 2018

Three stocks hit markets: (i) an escalation of political risk, (ii) weakening growth (notably in Europe); and (iii) a stronger USD, which led to stress in emerging markets In Italy, market worries about fiscal excesses and the prospect of a clash between the new government and European authorities escalated. As a result, ‘peripheral’ eurozone debt sold off. Italian markets are likely to remain volatile in coming months as investors digest further news on political developments and economic data There are signs of a growth slowdown, notably in the eurozone, according to recent data. However, we find it difficult to call a turn in the economic cycle yet. While the data have weakened, activity is still expanding both in the developed world and emerging markets Emerging market stress was largely a consequence of higher US yields and USD strength. In our view, local debt offers value and currently lower US yields are reassuring, but we need to see the USD and global risk sentiment stabilise for EM debt to rally materially

May 4, 2018

Asset allocation – May 2018

SUMMARY: As in February, US Treasury yields rose to the point where they ended up rocking markets, but this time the disruption was more visible in the US dollar and emerging markets than in equity markets / We see several factors for the rise: (i) US inflation and crude oil prices hit 2018 highs in April, (ii) US macroeconomic data have been robust enough for the US Federal Reserve to continue normalising its interest-rate policy, and (iii) rates markets have become more concerned about US Treasury debt issuance / The bar is quite high for further interest-rate increases in the near term, but when policy tightening does resume, we think this will not keep equity markets from rallying as long as the growth backdrop remains solid / The stronger USD reflects disappointing economic activity data in the G10 and emerging markets compared to the US. This is consistent with markets pricing in reduced expectations of central bank policy normalisation in Europe and Japan / Further USD strength is possible, but we doubt it can persist in the medium term unless the prospects for growth in the US continue to decouple from those for the rest of the world

April 10, 2018

Asset allocation quarterly – April 2018

Concerns over inflation, less central bank accommodation / trade protectionism escalates / activity data disappoints / reducing equity exposure, macro view unchanged / adding to EMU duration underweight

March 7, 2018

Asset allocation – March 2018

SUMMARY: Market review: the rebound in risky assets is ongoing, but prices are still below the pre-correction highs / Should we worry about inflation? We see a modest pick-up rather than a take-off / Can equities perform in a rising rate environment? Yes, but typically driven by strengthening earnings growth / Which safe assets can offer protection in Fed tightening cycles? No silver bullet; bonds may not offer shelter

February 13, 2018

Asset allocation – February 2018

SUMMARY: Global equities sold off aggressively as higher bond yields finally dented the strong January risk rally / The sell-off was triggered by strong hourly earnings data in the US, but its magnitude appears to be exacerbated by market technicals / Solid growth fundamentals and limited contagion from the equity volatility to other markets such as rates, currencies and emerging markets (EM) are consistent with a technical dislocation in markets

January 22, 2018

Asset allocation – Q4 2017 – 19 January 2018

SUMMARY: Over the fourth quarter, economic developments continued to be positive.

December 19, 2017

November 21, 2017

Asset allocation – November 2017

US inflation on a rising trend

Our outlook for US inflation and growth has brightened considerably since the start of 2018, so we have lifted our targets for both US Treasury yields and TIPS-based breakeven inflation rates. Here, we review the factors we see as contributing to the rise in US inflation and we look at the potential monetary policy response from the Federal Reserve (Fed).
