Imperative for everyone expected to have a view on the markets. Our Global Macro Economic Outlook offers a clear insight into how the global economies and financial markets interrelate and affect each other and offers concrete medium term predictions for the main markets. As political developments have a huge impact on financial markets and the economic environment we put the possible implications into perspective for you in the Global Political Risk Monitor. The strong combination of these reports serve as an excellent base for your strategic investment and risk management decisions.
Whether you are managing Currency and Interest Rate Risks in a corporate, bank or asset management environment, you will appreciate our clear and accurate analysis on EUR/USD, GBP, JPY, CHF, and US and EMU interest rates. In our series of FX & Interest Rates reports we discuss how the monetary policies of the leading Central Banks and all other relevant aspects influence these specific markets on a medium term time frame (3 weeks to 1 year ahead).
A series of reports that will enable you to spend more time with clients and less time reading! In our quarterly investment outlook (with monthly updates) we outline how we would invest. In the Consensus & Fund Flow report you read the recommendations of over 50 leading global Asset Managers in combination with the net in or outflow to the separate asset classes. The combination of these two reports gives you an excellent benchmark for your own asset allocation decisions. The Markets to Watch strives to give you early warning signals when specific markets are on the verge of a break out.
How does one manage to select the best investment funds within a certain asset class? In cooperation with our partner VDVM we present a largely model-based selection process, designed to make your fund selection more efficient, more consistent and compliant. Under future Mifid regulations, you will have to be able to underpin the choice or recommendation of a specific investment fund, which you can demonstrate by working with the Fund Selection Model (FSM).
The model uses five factors (performance, solidity, costs, Morningstar and risk) to select a top 10 of investment funds (including ETF’s) for every major asset class. The results for 13 large asset classes are clearly presented each quarter in our Fund Selection Performance Review. A big help in making informed and objective choices regarding the selection of investment funds!
