JCB: Global Markets Briefing - March 2020

February 21, 2020


For professional advisers only

Join CIO Charlie Jamieson and Mark Burgess (career asset allocator and former CEO of the Future Fund) for a discussion around the persistent challenges facing global markets, and how to protect portfolios at a time when quality and liquidity are key.

We're often asked about the implications of low interest rates for asset allocators, as well as what we think the most underappreciated risks facing investors are today. These topics along with our views on global bond yields in the short to medium term will be covered including an open Q&A session.

Charlie Jamieson: The current state of the economy and monetary policy effects after a demand and supply shock of Coronavirus
  • What are the implications on global demand and supply resulting from China’s lower growth prospects and cashflow blockage?
  • Will the $AUD continue to suffer over the medium term? How will further US Fed rate cuts impact the currency?
  • How investors can globalise their income strategies to diversify and reduce overall portfolio risk, or add significant tail risk protections in this late cycle market.
  • Will policy asymmetry continue to drive asset performance as economies require constant accommodation to deliver status quo economic outcomes?  
Mark Burgess: Portfolio considerations and implications for investors
  • What are the big long term secular changes and what are they telling us?
  • How institutional and family offices are developing approaches to benefit from diversification in this geo-politically driven environment.
  • Long term allocations between Australia and offshore – what are the opportunities, hidden risks and diversifying benefits?
