Priorities for 2019
The start of the year is a good time to consider some of the likely key issues that investors may have to deal with over the next 12 months. In our latest Sound Thinking, our CIO, Ian Toner, CFA identifies the following eight topics that are likely to be important during 2019:
- Volatility: It’s back
- Central banks: Still central
- Credit: Time to worry?
- U.S. Equities: Are they cheap yet?
- Diversification: Does it work?
- Europe: Better off out?
- China: Yes, it really matters
- Focus: On what works
In this paper Ian outlines ways that investors might approach each of these topics, and identifies some of the ways they might impact portfolios over the year.
