The Q1 edition of our Quarterly Strategy Pack was just sent to clients
The slide pack covers the key themes/charts on the outlook for 2022, specifically:
-the macro outlook (policy, inflation, growth, risk scenarios)
-core asset allocation views (growth vs defense, major asset classes)
-specific ideas (within/across asset classes and sectors/regions)
Next week I will be hosting webinars/calls with 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 (scheduled for Wednesday 4pm New York Time, and Thursday 8am London Time - but recordings will be available, although n.b. the Q&A sessions will not be recorded).
The Quarterly Strategy Pack was one of several upgrades and enhancements to the service in recent years, 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 2022 Quarterly Strategy Pack:
--act 2 of the Policy Pivot, this time starring developed market central banks
--a possible growth scare scenario in 2022
--sources of upside: global investment boom
--source of upside: covid and cash
