The Q1 edition of the new Quarterly Strategy Pack was sent to clients last week
The Quarterly Strategy Pack:
-Presents our major themes and outlook
-Includes concrete views on asset class positioning
-Serves as a basis for discussion (I would have brought something similar to this with me on marketing trips/client visits in the pre-corona world)
This week I will be distributing a video to clients where I go through the slides and talk through the highlights, add some extra comments/context/explanation, and address some specific client questions about the pack and about markets/macro in general.
The Quarterly Strategy Pack was one of several upgrades and enhancements to the service last year, e.g. the Monthly Chartbook was revamped and rebranded to the monthly Market Cycle Guidebook, and the Global Cross Asset Market Monitor now also features a global cross asset sentiment chart pack and extra commentary on sentiment and technicals (as a weekly markets kick-start and market intel pack). I still have a few other things on the agenda too, so be sure to get set up for a trial now so you can follow more closely.
In terms of what was covered in the Q1 2021 Quarterly Strategy Pack:
--Themes that Echo (monetary, fiscal policy, green shoots, backlogs)
--Inflation Risks (clear upside risks to inflation)
--Risks Remain (the risk radar is back by popular demand)
--Growth vs Defense: recommendation and sign-posts for next steps
--Global Equities: it's time to fade passive - take a more nuanced approach
--Some specific ideas (EMFX, EM Equities, Oil vs Gold, EM ex-Asia, Agri)
Also included is a summary of views across the major asset classes and TAA positioning guide, and a look at changes in expected returns vs the previous quarter.
So get set up for a trial today and I will forward this and some other recent reports through.
If you have any questions or requests, just get in contact.

About the Service:
Our institutional service caters to multi-asset portfolio managers and investment professionals. The service comprises a set of reports (2 weekly, 1 monthly, 1 quarterly) and personalized service to help make the portfolio managers' job easier. With the service we deliver a flow of investment ideas, risk management input, and meaningful macro insights. Our Head of Research and founder spent his career on the buy-side, and our reports reflect that perspective with a clear "so what?" focus rather than research for research sake. The reports are punchy and chart/fact focused, and are easy to read both in terms of speed and understanding: so clients often end up saving time and getting better insights. So if you're looking for a dedicated and specialist service to help you deliver excellent returns for your clients, give us a try.
