Title: 2022 midyear outlook: Back to a volatile future

 Our first theme is bracing for volatility. We have entered a regime of higher macro volatility and market volatility and that is here to stay. A goldilocks outcome of a sustained rally of both equities and bonds, that’s off the table.

Our second theme is living with inflation. We are in a world shaped by supply and the trade off between growth and inflation facing the Fed and other central banks is so much tougher in such an environment.

Our third theme is positioning for net zero. We believe investors can get exposure to the transition by not only investing in the “already green” companies, but also high-carbon companies with credible transition plans or are critical to the transitions.

The bottom line is we see persistently higher inflation amid shorter swings in economic activity.  Through the course of this year, we have trimming portfolio level risk-taking and we do so again at this junction. And we also believe that in this environment, in this new regime, portfolios need to go through more dynamic and more frequent adjustments.
