Market Cycle Guidebook - November 2020
We just published our "Market Cycle Guidebook" for November, which is part of our institutional investment research service.
The monthly Market Cycle Guidebook is designed to be a key resource for global multi-asset investors. It focuses on illuminating the key drivers of risk and return across a global multi-asset universe, with the intention of generating actionable conclusions and meaningful insights for medium-term active asset allocation decisions.
Key features of the Market Cycle Guidebook: -Front page big picture summary on the global economic cycle, monetary policy, and valuations -Market performance snapshot & commentary /highlights -Summary views across asset classes (short and medium term); basically an "AA cheat sheet"
-TAA/DAA guide visually mapping those views -Monthly updated Capital Market Assumptions -And of course, over 70 charts illuminating the key medium-term drivers of risk and return across a global multi-asset universe
-Australia/New Zealand appendix (since we're down this part of the world!)
Some of the key takeaways from the latest edition:
-growth asset valuations reasonable, defensive assets unreasonable (expensive)
-monetary conditions indicators show a developing tailwind to growth building up in the system (add to that current and expected fiscal measures)
-cycle indicators are getting progressively less bad (green shoots)
--at a high level: overweight growth/risk assets (especially commodities and global ex-US)
--also paying closer attention to the multi asset "mega theme" headed into 2021
The report is designed for active asset allocators, and professional investors who require top-down input in their investment process.
