Going Global with Equities

August 2023 | As global markets react to central banks’ efforts to control persistent inflation, the opportunity set is changing across international equities. In our view, there are several underlying reasons to be optimistic about equity markets outside the US. Meanwhile, due to several factors, including recent significant stimulus and hopes over artificial intelligence, a handful of US stocks are experiencing significantly high valuations. In order to diversify their investments and find new opportunities, investors can consider incorporating global equities into their portfolios.

01 |  We believe the US economy is positioned to experience a prolonged slowdown and possibly a recession.

02 | US equity markets appear expensive relative to other markets and to their own history.

03 | With inflationary pressures likely to remain higher for longer, investors may be able to benefit from expanding the global reach of their portfolios.
