ASSET CLASS VIEWS FROM OUR SENIOR INVESTORS
Global Asset Allocation Views 4Q 2022
Anticipating subtrend growth well into 2023, we remain neutral duration and overweight cash. We underweight equities, expecting meaningful earnings downgrades. We take a neutral stance on credit, with a clear preference for investment grade over high yield.
Global Fixed Income Views 4Q 2022
Recession is our base case scenario, at 50%. We raised the likelihood of Crisis to 15% while lowering Sub Trend Growth to 30% and Above Trend Growth to 5%. We’re using market rallies to reduce our interest rate exposure and credit risk. Our best idea: high quality, short-dated cash flows.
Factor Views 4Q 2022
The factors that we favor held up well in a challenging 3Q 2022 market environment: Equity momentum, merger arbitrage and macro carry were all positive, and losses across other factors were relatively limited. We maintain our positive outlook for equity factors, which appear cheap.
