In this webcast Bruce Stout gives an update on a wide range of subjects including the Trust’s performance, a sector breakdown, the twenty largest investments and an outlook for the Trust.
The icy chill of deflation enveloped the global economic backdrop in December, causing increased uncertainty and volatility to be unwelcomed chaperons of financial markets into the year end. Declining oil and commodity prices, collapsing consumer price indices and falling bond yields suggest the inherent deflationary risk associated with debt-deleveraging remains as potent as ever. In a world crippled by debt, constraints on future growth and prosperity are evident for all to see.
Rising risk aversion translated into significant US dollar strength, widespread dumping of energy and commodity assets and US equities “reclaiming” their safe haven status in the minds of frightened investors. Capital preservation proved extremely tough to achieve against a backdrop of broader global equity markets intent on accentuating only the negative.
During the period weakness in emerging markets was used to add to existing positions in Brazilian sovereign debt and Banco Bradesco.
“It couldn’t happen to us, could it?” The “it” being deflation: the “us” being the so-called developed world, experiencing what only the Japanese economy has endured for the past 25 years. Anaemic growth, falling prices and falling wages. Whilst it may be premature to postulate, there can be no doubt the recent collapse in bond yields suggest the possibility is being considered. Against this backdrop, preserving capital through broad portfolio diversification will continue to be favoured and pursued.
