Asset allocation video – Adjusting to geopolitical turmoil

The conflict in Ukraine has kicked off a tumultuous period in geopolitics and financial markets. The uncertainties over the duration and degree of the conflict have led the multi-asset team at BNP Paribas Asset Management to take a more cautious stance in its portfolios and reduce risk-taking.  

Watch our asset allocation video with Maya Bhandari, head of multi-asset, and Daniel Morris, chief market strategist, as they discuss the portfolio adjustments as well as the outlook for rates and risk positioning.

Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).

Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
