The Federal Reserve’s evolving policy strategy framework

Key themes


Investing in Small Caps

Companies with a small market capitalization have many special features that can appeal to investors. Managers typically have a more entrepreneurial style and are more agile when it comes to responding to market demands and innovation trends. Such companies often attract buyers. Listed small-cap stocks are usually covered less extensively by financial analysts, and thus attract less market attention, which can make for attractive valuations. We believe a high-alpha investment strategy – one that involves managers skilled in benefiting from these features – suits this asset class best.

Why invest in emerging market debt

Emerging market debt as an asset class has grown rapidly in recent years, increasing in breadth and depth. As a result, there is more sophistication in the types of fixed-income products to choose from. At the same time, regulatory and legal changes in many emerging countries have improved the solidity of investments in EM debt. In our view, a blended emerging market fixed-income portfolio combining local currency and hard currency debt is an appealing choice for investors.
