Accelerating growth: profits and pitfalls

The global economic expansion can strengthen further in 2018, creating opportunities and risks.

What's different this year?

We explore the potential outlook for the economy and investment returns in 2018 and compare these with current investor expectations.

Build a great portfolio - go global now

We revisit the fundamental principles of asset allocation and best investment practices that have helped keep some families among the world’s wealthiest for generations.

Opportunistic investing alongside core portfolios

Many clients wish to pursue opportunistic investments beyond their core portfolio. We discuss how this might be achieved in a disciplined way.

Core income strategies

Even in today’s world of very low interest rates, there are potential opportunities to seek yield and diversification.

Emerging opportunities

We believe emerging markets may offer the potential for long-term outperformance.

Exploiting volatility

After unusual calm in 2017, volatility could make a comeback in 2018. This creates new possibilities for preparing portfolios for the unexpected.

Transforming commerce

Ongoing disruption across many industries continues to create investment opportunities, but also demands selectivity.
