Consumer Staples - The end of an era?

Market and corporate lifecycles can last a very long time and create large valuation anomalies offering great opportunities for active managers.

Insight 19.10.2017

Some segments of the bond market are still capable of delivering good returns

The current market environment is contradictory to some extent. Economic activity remains strong, with firm, synchronised growth across all geographical zones, and inflation is neither too high nor too low, allowing central banks to take a very gradual approach when bringing their monetary policies back to normal.

Insight 16.10.2017
