Investment Policy

Summer volatility

September 2018 – In the previous issue of our Investment Policy we said that the financial markets are characterized by lower volumes and frequent erratic movements during the summer months, and that volatility – particularly in the currency and equity markets – could well rise. We also explained why the US could be set to attract capital flows.

Market Comment

Focus on US equities

August 2018 - We would like to elaborate on our focus on US equities and explain why we remain overweight in this segment compared to global equities. Even if it loses some momentum over the next few months, the US economy continues to exhibit above-average growth. US corporate earnings have once again exceeded the market's high expectations for the second quarter, with more than 80% of companies surprising on the upside. Valuation methods do not suggest US equities are overly expensive, particularly not in relation to US bonds. The American stock market can therefore cope with higher interest rates – as long as these are accompanied by solid economic growth, as this would have the effect of boosting corporate earnings. Our US equities module offers promising performance and a diversified way of gaining exposure to the world’s leading equity market, which also boasts the strongest earnings growth of any region.

Market Comment

No Italian Summer?

June 2018 – Italy finally has a new government. But the new coalition's policy plans put it on a path to confrontation with the EU, as Italy feels it has been left in the lurch. The realization of these electoral promises could trigger a massive increase in Italy's budget deficit, as well as turbulence in the eurozone. European equities now come with higher risks attached.
