  • Asset Allocation Update - MAY 2019 download

    Cash flows and discount rates have moved in opposite directions over the past six months, and discount rate moves have triumphed. Take the year so far. Equity cash flows, proxied by earnings growth expectations1, have weakened across each major equity bloc or region, shifting horizontally to the left in Figure 1. Yet stock market returns have risen – moving up vertically – apparently shrugging off the weaker cash flow picture.

    In the space of just 12 months, markets have switched from expecting interest rate rises to expecting interest rate falls. Broadly speaking, this means 2019 should be a good year for fixed income. But investors are treading a fine line and need to differentiate between fixed income strategies.
