Solving for 2023: Back to the "Old Normal"
Our senior investment leaders discuss their market and investment themes for the coming year.
The Private Equity of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
(22:07) Traditionally, Private Equity has offered key return potential and diversification benefits, which has allowed it to grow dramatically in the last 30 years. But could we see that growth continue as markets take a downturn?
Into the Inflationary Slowdown
As inflation persists and recession risks rise, our Asset Allocation Committee sees more yield potential in fixed income and favors commodities for ongoing inflation exposure, but remains cautious in equities.
Private Markets—From Alternative to Mainstream
In the June 2022 30th Anniversary Issue of Journal of Investing, Erik Knutzen, CIO—Multi-Asset, details the evolution of private markets over the last three decades and highlights the key trends and challenges anticipated for the future.
Investing in Infrastructure
The world faces a $15 trillion infrastructure financing gap by 2040, and cash-strapped governments are increasingly calling on private capital to achieve their digitalization, decarbonization, supply-chain enhancement and social-infrastructure goals.
While we do not anticipate a recession over the next 12 months, the prospect of slowing growth and stubborn inflation has led us to downgrade our view on equities, and prepare for a new regime in which real assets could generally perform better than financial assets such as stocks and bonds.
Hike Rates and Carry On
A positive economic outlook makes the case for holding risky assets through 2022, in our view, but higher rates are likely to mean higher volatility: we therefore favor a focus on income or “carry” from risky assets, alongside strategies with the potential to withstand price volatility.
