Global Investment Strategy: Sangfroid!

Posted August 10, 2017 by rvillareal

  • A thick layer of complacency has blanketed global financial markets as prices have pushed higher across most asset classes in 1H2Q17.
  • Decision Economics (DE) forecasts global growth at a strong pace through 2018 with low inflation and low real interest rates, the rising “hawkish” chatter by many major central banks notwithstanding.  DE models show no recession in sight.
  • Against this backdrop, DE retains  OW exposure to equities in the U.S., EMs, core EZ and Japan, while reducing exposure to the UK and Europe’s periphery.
  • DE maintains UW positions in dollar and non-dollar developed market bonds, while raising exposure to emerging market dollar and non-dollar bonds.
