How is climate change affecting the outlook for weather-reliant investments? The annual repricing of climate-related reinsurance means investors in insurance-linked securities should continue to be well compensated for the risks of severe climate events, even if they increase in frequency and severity. Additionally, the diversification benefits of the asset class, which is not linked to traditional markets, remain attractive to investors. We remain constructive on this asset class and believe ILS are even more relevant today in a diversified portfolio.
While cash interest rates may be relatively high today, those elevated levels may not last very long. For investors whose objectives can be measured in months or years rather than days, we believe today’s historically elevated interest rates may call for allocating at a point on the yield curve that controls for volatility risk without ignoring reinvestment risk.
Economic deceleration and ambiguity over monetary policy are collectively increasing complexity across markets. This is not a time to take bold risks; instead, we believe investors should stick to their long-term convictions around duration in the US and Europe. In addition, current uncertainty on US inflation strengthens the case for enhancing safeguards. We believe oil offers additional protection and diversification from the recent increase in geopolitical risks.
We believe the effects of economic tightening may lead to a deceleration in growth. With an uncertain economic path ahead, investors can potentially strengthen their portfolios with a series of opportunities.
With bond yields back to historical levels, fixed income investments may return to their traditional role as sources of potential income and risk management.
In this environment of high levels of inflation and rising interest rates, we believe investors can seek to select equities that provide a combination of structural growth potential, quality, stability and valuation support.
To seek reduced portfolio risk and increased return potential, investors can extend the geography of their portfolios into both developed and emerging economies.
Investors seeking to strengthen alpha and potentially reduce risk may incorporate investments with low correlation to traditional investments, such as catastrophe bonds, which are dependent on extreme weather events.
