Key Discussion Topics

ECONOMIC, POLITICAL & GLOBAL MARKETS OUTLOOK

Currently, we find ourselves in a positive domestic GDP environment, with optimistic corporate earnings growth, a strong dollar and a volatile stock market. What is to be expected in 2020 and beyond?

FIXED INCOME INVESTMENTS

Global growth remains positive and central banks around the world continue to unwind what has been a very accommodating monetary policy. However, with volatility likely to stay high, investors must continue to do their homework.

EQUITIES AND THEIR IMPACT ON PORTFOLIOS

Huge opportunities remain available for investors considering (I would change“considering” to “making” predictions for 2019. Aside from energy, where are the biggest opportunities? Will ESG be affected as volatility cripples some specific industries?

EMERGING AND OPPORTUNISTIC ALTERNATIVE INVESTING

Private Equity, Venture, Hedge Funds and other alternatives investments hold appeal for wealthy families. How are wealth managers viewing future allocations as valuations increase and dry powder sits on the sidelines?

REAL ASSETS AND REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT STRATEGIES

With volatility expected to continue throughout 2019 in public markets, investors with an appetite for less risk will be turning to real estate and other real assets investments. Still, finding the best opportunities will require great due diligence and patience.

ASSET ALLOCATION

With competition for clients and assets on the rise, wealth managers need to ensure that their asset allocation strategies address the balance between risk and opportunity.
