Asset Allocation, financial markets and equity strategy for November 2016
Video published on 11/11/2016
During the last month, fixed income government bonds have shown a worse performance than risk assets. The worse evolution of fixed income bonds is due to the upturn in long term interest rates deriving from greater dynamism in activity and inflation data, the latter which has been supported by the increase in oil prices, and due to a change in Central Banks’ discourse on monetary policy. In this regard, based on the messages by central banks over the last few weeks, there are certain doubts on the effectiveness of maintaining current low or negative interest rate polices. Antonio Martos, Customer Strategy Management, presents this video on November investment perspectives in the financial markets.

17/09/2019September: investment outlook for financial markets
Stock markets have stabilised and recovered some of the ground lost in August thanks to the intervention of central banks, which have cushioned the effects of the political noise caused by escalating trade tensions between the US and China and the increased uncertainty around the outcome of Brexit. Diversification has once again proven to be the most appropriate investment strategy. More defensive assets, such as government bonds and gold, have performed extremely well, and diversified portfolios have therefore avoided the brunt of negative movements in equities.

The excellent performance seen since the beginning of the year continues for the majority of assets.

31/12/20182019 investment outlooks for financial markets
