    Russia-Ukraine: an uncertain outcome calls for higher focus on liquidity

    2022-03-07T16:25:00Z By Amundi Asset Management

    At the core of the crisis, Russian assets have become almost un-investible, with dramatic price action as the market attempts to grapple with uncertainty. European equities have suffered, anticipating the negative consequences of the war on corporate earnings, while also commodities trended higher with double digit rise across many commodities. A flight to safety move has benefited government bonds, with the US treasury yield and the Bund yield trending lower.

    Are Higher Energy Prices A Game Changer For Growth?

    2022-03-07T15:41:00Z By Unigestion

    Oil is once again in the spotlight, reaching levels not seen since 2014. After having witnessed the seemingly impossible event of negative prices when the pandemic took the world by surprise in 2020, we are now facing a 50% increase in Brent and WTI crude oil since January. This upside trend, which has extended to most of the commodities markets, places the Fed and the major central banks between a rock and a hard place: whereas the inflation shock intensifies in the short-term, the risk of recession is growing in the medium-term.

    The invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops has caught Europe off guard, reminding it of the darkest hours before the Second World War. NATO countries and European leaders have so far ruled out direct military confrontation because of the risk of escalation between nuclear powers.

    An Equity Outlook: Are Stocks the Biggest Real Asset Out There?

    2022-03-01T17:00:00Z By AllianceBernstein

    It may be easy to take a bearish stance on equities today, but there’s a case for stocks to generate positive real returns on a strategic basis going forward. High household equity allocations may actually be warranted, elevated valuations don’t necessarily spell doom, populist pressures on earnings growth are surmountable and falling correlations within the equity market create more “potential energy” for active management to add alpha.

    The geopolitical escalation at month’s end marks a further rise in volatility. Credit spreads (IG, HY and Euro peripherals) continued to widen while equity markets corrected further.

    Asset Class Implications of the Russia-Ukraine Conflict

    2022-02-28T10:43:00Z By Franklin Templeton

    Russia has invaded Ukraine. Our Franklin Templeton Investment Solutions team reflects on the human tragedy that is occurring as they also parse the data to understand the resulting economic and market implications.

    Japan: Land of Rising Equity Opportunities

    2022-02-25T10:41:00Z By Franklin Templeton

    Despite an extended deflationary period and several catastrophic natural disasters, Japan’s gross domestic product (GDP) has consistently ranked among the world’s top three largest economies over the last three decades. While this resiliency is commendable, unfortunately, global benchmark allocations to Japanese equities have not fared as well.

    The Inflation Inflection

    2022-02-25T10:31:00Z By Neuberger Berman

    The COVID-19 pandemic, and the range of policies aimed at mitigating its impact, has triggered a return to levels of inflation unseen for 40 years. While inflation is likely to moderate from these very high levels during 2022, we believe it will settle and persist at a rate higher than we have become used to over recent cycles.
