Every month, our Asset Allocation Committee meets to discuss and debate our market outlook. How has our asset allocation changed month-on-month? Here Bernard Swords, Chief Investment Officer, presents our views.
A bit of cheer around financial markets since the last Top Down. World equities are up 2.8% in Euro terms and there has been a nice recovery in the bond markets with the euro area aggregate retuning 3.2%.
Inflation fears subsided somewhat over the last month but the jury is still out on whether pricing pressure has peaked. Growth indicators were reasonable during the month with better market sentiment.
How did this impact our market outlook? And how has our asset allocation changed month-on-month?
To explore our views, read our latest edition of Top Down.
