WHERE DO YOU GO FOR INVESTMENT INSIGHT?
As the information explosion gathers pace, the sheer volume of data may make finding and evaluating investment opportunities increasingly complex. MiFID II is also changing the way you purchase and consume research. Even experts in the investment industry can overlook the impact macro factors have on markets.
  • Do you know how a strong currency in one part of the world will affect demand elsewhere?
  • What do interest rate rises mean for manufacturing in the U.S, Chinese exports, or bond yields in Germany?
  • To succeed in today’s investment industry, it’s essential to understand these relationships. Assessing trends and exploring how movements in one asset can influence returns in another all form a key part of an asset managers’ decision-making toolkit. Macro factors exert a huge influence - to ignore them is to expose a portfolio to unnecessary risk.
