Trevor Greethams Investeringsklocka december: Prisfallet på olja påminner om 1990-talet

Nyheter   •   2015-01-14 16:44 CET

Dollarn är stark, oljepriset faller och tillväxtmarknadernas valutor står under hårt tryck – ändå har de amerikanska aktieindexen slagit nya rekord. Vi ser starka paralleller med den fallande inflationen under 1990-talet, och våra taktiska positioner med positiv syn på amerikanska aktier och negativ syn på känsliga råvaror har lönat sig.

Trevor Greethamns Clockwise December: Oil’s plunge recalls the late 1990s

Nyheter   •   2015-01-09 16:15 CET

The US dollar is strong, the oil price is falling and emerging market currencies are under pressure, yet US equity indices have been making new all-time highs. We see strong parallels with the disinflationary 1990s and our tactical positions in favour of US equities and against commodity sensitivities have been paying off.

OUTLOOK 2015: Three themes shape the 2015 macro landscape

Nyheter   •   2014-12-17 16:30 CET

Three main themes are likely to shape the global macro landscape in 2015: disinflationary growth, monetary policy divergence and growing emerging market differentiation.

OUTLOOK 2015: Stable but positive for fixed income in 2015

Nyheter   •   2014-12-17 16:29 CET

Investors have enjoyed strong performance from across the bond asset classes in 2014. Government bond yields have fallen, while trends in credit markets have been mixed. Credit spreads tightened in investment grade but widened in high yield, although both asset classes have enjoyed solid absolute returns.

OUTLOOK 2015: Asia continues to grow despite strong dollar concerns

Nyheter   •   2014-12-17 16:29 CET

The outlook for Asian markets remains healthy. While there have been recent bumps that have weakened investor sentiment and despite the received wisdom that US dollar strength should in theory be a negative for many markets, across the region there are several developments on the policy and broad macro front that are likely to continue to drive markets over the mid-to-long term.

OUTLOOK 2015: US bull run to continue in 2015

Nyheter   •   2014-12-17 16:25 CET

Financial markets experienced a pick-up in volatility in the last quarter of 2014 and investors should expect further bouts in 2015 given the prospect of interest rate rises in the US. However, I believe the US stock market will deal with these rises quite comfortably.

Trevor Greethams ClockWise oktober: Tjäna på deflationschocker

Nyheter   •   2014-10-30 15:09 CET

Tjäna på deflationschocker

Vi befinner oss i en ekonomi med två hastigheter, där USA är i mycket bättre form än alla andra. Regionala skillnader har tagit sig uttryck i en stark dollar, svaga råvarupriser och en kraftig korrektion på aktiemarknaderna.

Vi utnyttjade svagheten på marknaden och investerarnas låga förtroende och utökade vår allokering till aktier. Den amerikanska tillväxten är fortsatt stark och de sjunkande bensinpriserna kommer att stärka konsumenten ytterligare.

 

Nyckeltal i fokus

 

Tillväxt

Tillväxtprognoserna är fortsatt positiva, men återhämtningen har blivit ojämn och obalanserad. Den amerikanska tillväxten är fortsatt stabil och arbetslösheten fortsätter att minska.

Men utanför USA ser det annorlunda ut: aktiviteten i euroområdet är svag, Kina genomgår fortsatt en avmattning och Japan är fortfarande drabbat av följderna av en momshöjning.

Inflation

Våra nyckeltal för den globala inflationen pekar fortsatt nedåt med en låg eller fallande inflation och ett inflationstryck på noll.

Den svaga ekonomiska tillväxten utanför USA, överskottskapacitet och ett ökat energiutbud gör att råvarupriserna fortsatt sjunker.

Aktuell fördelning av tillgångar

Den här månaden utökade vi än en gång allokeringen till aktier för att utnyttja det låga förtroendet och volatiliteten på marknaden som beror på en fortsatt ekonomisk återhämtning.

En kombination av långsammare tillväxt i Kina, en stark dollar och överskottskapacitet gör att vi fortsatt är underviktade i råvaror.

Vi har en måttlig undervikt i statsobligationer utifrån en förväntan om sämre avkastning när centralbankerna återgår till en normal penningpolitik, medan frånvaron av inflation innebär att några räntehöjningar inte är att vänta.

Trevor Greethams ClockWise October: Benefiting from disinflationary shocks

Nyheter   •   2014-10-30 14:46 CET

Benefiting from disinflationary shocks

We are in a two-speed world economy with the US in much better shape than the rest. Regional divergence has found expression in a bout of dollar strength, commodity price weakness and a sharp correction in equity markets.

We took advantage of market weakness and depressed investor sentiment to raise our equities allocation. US growth remains strong and the drop in gasoline prices will only strengthen the consumer.

Lead indicators in focus

Growth

The growth outlook remains positive but the recovery has become patchy and unbalanced. US growth remains robust and unemployment continues to fall.

Outside the US, activity in the Euro area is weak, China continues to slow, and Japan is still suffering the after-effects of a sales-tax hike.

Inflation

Our global inflation scorecard continues to point down with inflation low or falling and inflationary pressures absent.

Non-US economic growth weakness, excess capacity and increases in energy supply continue to push commodity prices lower.

Current Asset Allocation positioning

We raised allocation to equities again this month to take advantage of depressed sentiment and market volatility amid sustained economy recovery.

A combination of slower growth in China, dollar strength and excess capacity keeps us underweight commodities.

We are moderately underweight government bonds on the expectation of poorer returns as central banks normalise policy, while a lack of inflation means rate hikes are not imminent.

PYRAMIS SURVEY REVEALS SURGE IN CONFIDENCE AMONG WORLD’S LARGEST INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS

Pressmeddelanden   •   2014-10-28 10:08 CET

PYRAMIS SURVEY REVEALS SURGE IN CONFIDENCE AMONG WORLD’S LARGEST INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS

 

Stockholm, 28th October 2014: Confidence has returned among institutional investors worldwide, according to a new survey by Pyramis Global Advisors.

Nine in ten (91%) pension plans and other institutional investors believe they can achieve target returns in five years, significantly higher than the 65 percent reported in 2012, according to the 2014 Pyramis Global Institutional Investor Survey, which includes 811 respondents in 22 countries representing more than USD$9 trillion in assets.

“After years of strong equity returns and below average volatility, institutional investors want to keep their winning streak going,” said Pam Holding, chief investment officer, Pyramis. “Our global survey shows that while the outlook on volatility varies greatly by region, institutions worldwide largely agree that they can continue to grow their portfolios and improve funded status.”

 

Significant Regional Differences

The Pyramis survey identifies regional differences across such topics as: expectations for market volatility, perspectives on alternatives, investment objectives and investment opportunities. “The survey gives us great insight into the current thoughts of the largest institutional investors worldwide. Nordic results provide some interesting observations such as the level which investors consider themselves fully understanding the risks in their own portfolios. 79% of the investors in Europe, excluding the Nordic countries, believe they fully understand the risks in their portfolios, whereas the corresponding average for the Nordic investors is 88%. In Finland, no less than 100% of the respondents claim they fully understand the risks in their portfolios”, states Henrik Jonsson, Head of Institutional Sales Nordic region, Fidelity Worldwide Investment, the sole distributor of Pyramis’ institutional investment products outside North America.

 

Market Volatility Expectations

Outside the U.S. and Canada, volatility expectations over the long term are quite low with a decrease in the frequency of boom/bust cycles expected in Asia (91%) and Europe (79%). Only seven percent of U.S. institutions expect volatility to decrease, while 42 percent expect an increase in volatility. This trend continues across North America with only 10 percent of Canadian plans expecting a decrease in volatility, while 60 percent foresee an increase.

While market volatility remains a top concern in Europe and Asia, U.S. institutions are expressing less worry about capital markets than years past. Europe also remains concerned about a low return environment, while Asia is focused on regulatory and accounting changes and Canada is focused on risk management. The top concern for U.S. plans is current funded status (28%), with a majority of pensions intending to improve it.

While the use of alternative investments is still rising rapidly in the rest of the world, use of liquid and illiquid alternatives appears to be slowing among U.S. institutions.

Among respondents planning an allocation increase to illiquid alternatives over the next one to two years, Asia leads the way with 79 percent, followed by Europe (57%) and the U.S. (22%).

When asked which investment approaches are most likely to underperform over the long term, 31 percent of U.S. respondents cite hedge funds as least likely to meet expectations. Risk factor investing is expected to be the biggest disappointment among Canadian, European and Asian plans.

When asked specifically about the fees associated with alternative investments, only 19 percent of U.S. plans surveyed say hedge funds and private equity are worth the fees, as compared to 91 percent in Asia and 72 percent in Europe.

“U.S. plans are currently re-evaluating the complexity, risks and fees associated with hedge funds,” said Derek Young, vice chairman of Pyramis Global Advisors. “Our survey suggests that U.S. institutions are preparing to move back to a more traditional, back-to-basics portfolio.”

 

Investment Objectives

On average, primary investment objectives among global institutions lean toward growth, but results vary considerably by geography. Asian institutions are overwhelmingly focused on growth, with 64 percent listing capital growth as the primary investment objective. For plans in the U.S., funded status growth is the primary investment objective, but levels differ among public plans (62%) and corporates (37%). Plans in Europe are primarily focused on preservation, while Canadian institutions are equally focused on preserving and growing their funded status.

 

Investment Opportunities

A global view of the survey results shows plans are seeking investment opportunities over the medium term predominantly in emerging Asia. However, a regional breakdown reveals a geographic tilt. Seventy-one percent of plans in Asia cite emerging Asia as the top medium-term growth prospect. U.S. and Canadian plans favour North America (34%) and emerging Asia (32%). European plans favour North America (33%), emerging Asia (21%) and developed Europe (19%).
