Complex markets can be difficult to decipher. We provide investment professionals and their clients with a global perspective to help explain the issues and trends affecting their portfolios.
Many market observers in 2019 believe they have witnessed cyclical warning signs which start the countdown to the next recession, we believe a recession is not a foregone conclusion.
Timing a market bottom may be difficult, but history tells us that the penalty to being early requires investors to endure only a short period of patience before being made whole again. As the chart shows, investing 5% before the market bottom has, on average, added just 3 days to an investor’s recovery period. Investors with the ability to enter early may take advantage of deep discounts to begin positioning for the recovery.
