Rethinking Portfolio Protection in 2019

Premier paragraphe

While asset managers have already grown accustomed to the uncertainty that dominated in 2018, the real change ahead in 2019 will be in the behavior of financial assets, which is set to be a departure from recent years.

The world’s central banks are expected to disengage in 2019, from a balance sheet perspective. The aggregate balance sheet of the Fed, BCE, BoE and BoJ will decline for the first time ever. However, while the amount of shrinkage in liquidity is a known quantity, its consequences for the world’s economies and financial markets remain unclear.

While asset managers have already grown accustomed to the uncertainty that dominated in 2018, the real change ahead in 2019 will be in the behavior of financial assets, which is set to be a departure from recent years.

The world’s central banks are expected to disengage in 2019, from a balance sheet perspective. The aggregate balance sheet of the Fed, BCE, BoE and BoJ will decline for the first time ever. However, while the amount of shrinkage in liquidity is a known quantity, its consequences for the world’s economies and financial markets remain unclear.

This development calls for asset managers to adjust to changing conditions, rethinking how they protect their portfolios and choosing the most suitable management styles. 

Going forward, expertise in risk management as well as in alternative risk premia will be key. In these two areas, Lyxor Asset Management has fully demonstrated its expertise and ability to choose the most relevant portfolio insurance and alternative management strategies.
