Some calm after the storm (podcast)

As a semblance of calm returns to financial markets, Guillermo Felices, head of research and strategy for Multi-Asset and Quantitative Solutions (MAQS), and Dominick DeAlto, chief investment officer fixed income, discuss potential opportunities and the risks ahead for investors.

Guillermo explains how his team are tracking the impact of the coronavirus on financial markets and what their conclusions mean for asset allocation. 

Dominick then talks us through the situation in fixed-income markets before highlighting the fixed-income sectors now offering scope to outperform for long-term investors.

This is the third in a series of podcasts articulating our investment views and strategies during the COVID-19 crisis. 

If you need further information on our strategies or investment policies, please do not hesitate to contact your dedicated client relationship manager.

Any views expressed here are those of the speakers as of the date of publication, are based on available information, and are subject to change without notice. Individual portfolio management teams may hold different views and may take different investment decisions for different clients.

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns.

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.
