    Signs indicate that the recent sell-off in tech stocks was a technical correction rather than a fundamental shift, though it remains uncertain whether the sector can resume its previous meteoric growth path. Meanwhile, the broader economy was buffeted by mixed signals as US unemployment ticked up and the Senate failed to pass a stimulus bill.

    Institutions and their policies are not set in stone. They change over time in response to changes in preferences and circumstances. Central banks are not exempt. For a long time, they operated in an environment dominated by upside inflation risks that made it vital to react pre-emptively to incipient signs of labour market overheating. However, the current environment is characterized by low equilibrium yields and persistent downside risks to inflation.

    September is usually the month when investors return to the markets after a summer break and when companies re-enter the new issue market. We talked to Alfred Meinema, Co-lead Portfolio Manager Euro Investment Grade at NN Investment Partners, and Rob Amenta, Senior Portfolio Manager US High Yield, based in NN IP’s New York office, about the outlook for the rest of the year. But we also took time to reflect on what has so far been an unprecedented year for credit issuance and learn why 2020 will almost certainly be entering the record books.

    Multi Asset: a solid total portfolio approach for a complex world

    2020-06-03T08:27:00Z By Amundi Asset Management

    An increasing number of institutional investors have adopted a total portfolio approach (TPA) as a response to the weaknesses of more traditional strategic asset allocation (SAA)-based methodologies. We believe the current crisis will reinforce this trend, as it is probably marking a paradigm shift in financial markets.
