Asset Class and Economic Themes  Equity markets rallied over the first half of 2023 but lost steam coming into September and October. Over the 3-months to October, all asset class performance was negative except for Alternatives and Cash. While recent market movements have vindicated the defensive positioning taken in Q2 2023, we remain cautious on […]

I would liken the equity rally as investors cautiously stepping out across a frozen river – positive they can make it […]
Asset Class and Economic Themes Whilst the seasons might be changing, for financial markets it was more or less the same. Themes discussed in the last newsletter remain dominant today – we sound a bit like a broken record repeating ourselves. Central banks and their actions continue to wield an outsized influence on the direction […]
Asset Class and Economic Themes As we prepare this commentary, it is a wet and cold Sydney morning like many we’ve had to bear this year. Days like these serve as a reminder that sunshine is not a guarantee and every now and then we must endure periods of rain and gloom. Like financial markets, […]
