Global Markets Overview: July 2023

By David Hoile | July 21, 2023

In this issue of Global Markets Overview, we explore what markets are pricing in and the case for further portfolio diversification.

Macro volatility remains an important theme for 2023/24, supporting portfolio diversification:

  • An equity-bond portfolio performed poorly in 2022 because inflation and real interest rates were higher than expected; we believe this remains a material risk in 2023/24, despite the year-to-date rise in equity prices.
  • Many investors could still benefit from diversifying equity risk. Simple ways of doing so can include investing in hedge funds, alternative credit, and real assets.
