2018 Investment Outlook

Market disruptions. We’ve seen many of these since the great financial crisis, and they’re usually bad things. The liquidity freeze. The taper tantrum. The oil price drop. In recent years, disruption has taken on new meaning in the tech world. A disruptor has been defined as one of two things: a product that addresses a market that previously couldn’t be served, or one that offers a simpler, cheaper, or more convenient alternative to an existing product.

Heading into 2018, we are seeing disruption of all kinds create opportunities in markets:

• We see global economic growth finally becoming synchronized.

• Companies are starting to invest again, opening the door for disruption to business models and opportunities within multi-asset investing.

• In fixed income markets, we expect a disruption to the recent success of passive strategies that rely on beta returns, which means investors will need to focus on finding sources of alpha.

• In equities, we expect a wave of “smart capex” and strategic investments that will create more winners and losers, which will make security selection more important than ever.

• Within private funds, we are focused on opportunities in the small and midsize markets.

    How to Strike the Right Balance in High Yield Bonds

    White papersTue, 3 Apr 2018

    Another year of strong performance from high yield markets and credit spreads inside of 350 basis points have prompted some investors to take a cautious view of the asset class. However, we believe the high yield space remains attractive as part of a fixed income portfolio, particularly as investors face global central bank policy tightening. The key is to approach the asset class thoughtfully.

    In the past 100 years, the automobile and oil industries have taken the lead in providing mobility to the world. They now seem to have reached their limits: Human productivity is dropping (due to significant time spent commuting), ecological degradation is rising, and traffic safety is deteriorating. While the solutions to these problems may have been easy to imagine, the necessary tools have not always been available or economical.
