How we’re managing our clients’ portfolios

With a global pandemic, the shutdown of the global economy, and the deepest recession since the 1930s, 2020 was a year like no other. Fortunately, 2021 has gotten off to a somewhat more normal start. Major world economies have weathered the COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns with relatively little long-term economic damage thanks to accommodative monetary policy and substantial fiscal spending. Moreover, the end of 2020 was marked by remarkable rebounds in equity markets; by December, global equities had gained around 12% since the beginning of 2020—an outcome few would have predicted during the depths of the market panic last March.

Here is how we are managing these economic and market shifts in our clients’ multi-asset portfolios, using our cycle, valuation, and sentiment (CVS) investment decision-making process.
