Ongoing concerns about persistent inflation and tighter-for-longer monetary conditions made 2023 the second consecutive year, in which stock and bond prices predominantly moved together (with the brief exception of the banking and debt-ceiling crises in spring). Adding to the mix a strengthening dollar, buoyed by higher interest rates and Treasury yields, created the perfect (risk) storm for US-based investors holding a global multi-asset class portfolio.
With central bank rates expected to be at or near their peaks, some of these developments are now likely to be reversed over the coming months. While fixed income assets are bound to benefit from lower yields, the impact on equity markets will depend on whether the two asset classes will retain their positive correlation or whether they will revert to their pre-COVID ‘normal’ of offsetting returns.
Join Christoph Schon in this webinar to hear his thoughts on how things could play out over the coming year.
