Mindful moves
As the rally in equity markets matures and bond yields tumble, the case for diversification increases. ABN AMRO Private Banking advises staying active as the recovery progresses and remaining aware of the benefits of diversification to reduce risk. There are powerful fundamental forces in favour of equities, while the character of bond market has altered completely. Financial markets are highly sensitive to the behaviour of central banks, and there is increased volatility in currency markets.

According to Didier Duret, Chief Investment Officer of ABN AMRO Private Banking: “The equity bull run is now in a mature phase, supported by well-established earnings momentum. Active allocation and diversification are required to deflect bond and currency volatility that has come with unprecedented monetary stimulation.”

ABN AMRO Private Banking maintains its overweight position in equities and remains underweight in bonds, according to its Mid-Year Investment Outlook – Mindful moves – published today. For diversification purposes, it recommends a combination of inflation-linked bonds, commodities, small caps and hedge-fund strategies, which, alongside a well-balanced portfolio of US, European and Asian equities can mitigate the risk of corrections. More information on these and other recommendations can be found in the full Mid-Year Investment Outlook, which can be downloaded in your preferred language via the link below.
