For investors experiencing dramatic market declines followed by a sharp recovery, the first half of 2020 has been dominated by uncertainty generated by the COVID crisis and the global lockdown. While the full impact of this pandemic is yet to become clear, it is certain to lead to significant change in global economies and markets looking ahead.
In revisiting and reshaping our Investment Outlook at half-year 2020, we understand that investors are going through unprecedented and challenging times. Settled ways of allocating assets and diversifying wealth may no longer stand up to detailed scrutiny. This makes our commitment to a risk-focused asset allocation even more relevant as we continue to seek out investment opportunities across equities, bonds and alternatives.
Throughout the crisis, UBP has taken a broad-based approach looking to protect clients’ wealth even when valuation movements are extreme. We have to be mindful too of political tensions between the US and China and the potential realignment of the European Union. While highlighting suitable “safe havens”, we can also still see potential for the global economy as it takes on a new shape.
