Research That Matters !
Research is useless unless it adds value to its readers.
Investing is all about being invested in the right space at the right time.
Bear markets do take place in equity markets every decade or so and they wipe out 40 to 60 % of investment value.
Bear markets also happen in bonds when the macro-economic environment becomes inflationary.
Capitalizing on bull phases and avoiding bear phases is key to generating positive performances.
Constrained Asset Allocations and Passive investment management have always been the main factors of Pension fund’s structural underperformance.
Agile management and dynamic asset allocation is key to delivering long term performances
Determining long-term trends and major turning points is what truly matters and only an exhaustive and holistic approach to the financial markets allows some degree of certainty in the process.
In-depth macro-economic, geo-political, valuation, flows of funds, and behavioral analyses are all needed and must be combined to paint the most accurate picture of the environment at any point in time.
