Equium Capital in the news
Coordinated central bank easing in the aftermath of the financial crisis made markets more globally interconnected than ever before, much more than investors realize. Cameron Hurst, Chief Investment Officer, explains on BNN Bloomberg how U.S. credit spreads, emerging markets equities and Canadian financial conditions are all linked by the receding tide of global liquidity.
After a long and hot summer, investors return from holidays to near peak U.S. and Canadian equity markets and subdued volatility. Adam Murl, Head of Research, discusses why we think this goldilocks period will be quickly challenged in September by the three bears of trade wars, Italy and Emerging Markets. Although we maintain exposure to risk assets, our sector allocations are shifting defensively and we note the three bears should be strong determinants on the direction of markets from here.
Market-moving signals can be obtuse and difficult to read at the best of times, but they become almost indistinguishable from indiscriminate noise during the quite summer months. Cameron Hurst, Chief Investment Officer, joins BNN Bloomberg Market Call to explain which signals matter right now and how nervous investors should actually be.
The market is no longer rewarding strong economic data and stellar corporate earnings. Adam Murl, Head of Research, discusses why investors aren't impressed and highlights which leading indicators are now flashing warning signs. We still see time left on the clock for equities, but our portfolio is shifting more defensively. With strong results now in the books for first half 2018, our Global Tactical Allocation strategy is well ahead of peers and on pace to deliver its annual high single digit return goal.
The significant economic benefits of U.S. tax relief and efficient foreign cash repatriation were within America's grasp, but they're being rapidly undermined by a trade war that's shaking corporate confidence. Cameron Hurst, Chief Investment Officer, explains how this unexpected development may bring one of the longest bull markets in history to an expedient and unceremonious end.
With an increasing number of market indicators signalling caution and the one of the longest bull markets in history looking long in the tooth, Cameron Hurst, Chief Investment Officer, highlights Top Picks on BNN Bloomberg that reflect growing risk aversion.
10 years ago, central banks the world over launched unprecedented stimulus programs to flood global capital markets with excess cash, i.e. liquidity, to stave off a second Great Depression. But now, with the global economy again self-sustaining, policy makers are dialing back the stimulus and reining in excess liquidity that's propelled asset prices to their lofty valuations. Cameron Hurst, CIO, joined BNN Bloomberg to discuss how this super-cycle could come to an end and what sign posts to watch for.
As the economic cycle ages and liquidity declines, our late cycle positioning continues to evolve. Adam Murl, Head of Research, describes the rationale for our rotation from Emerging Markets to Small Caps and a few of the data points were watching. Also, risks are rising in Europe, just not the ones everyone is talking about.
For an investment process to be sustainable, risk management must always trump incremental return. Cameron Hurst, CIO, joined BNN Bloomberg to discuss the tenuous state of the rally and why investors need to be particularly disciplined now. Some areas of the market remain resilient, while others have run out of steam.
