MI-PLAN IP Inflation Plus 3 comment - Sep 19
Financial markets around the globe further reflect vulnerability. Vulnerability in political discourse, in trade discussions, in agreement on climate change, and, most recently, on the strength of the US economy. Large scale protests in HK speak of a populace that no longer trusts the system of representation. Prime Minister Johnson, similarly, prorogues parliament in order to circumvent the normal checks and balances leading up to the October deadline. And all of this while the Zondo commission enters its 180th day. No wonder then that businesses have scaled back on new hires and new capital projects. In looking at the most recent dynamic of the 'repo' market at the Fed, we are concerned, particularly in light of the ever-increasing funding shortfalls that sent overnight rates in the US as high as 10% last week. These global forces have impacted currency, interest rate and equity markets with investors seeking greater safety in cash and bonds over equities. We maintain a conservative asset allocation position favouring cash and nominal bonds over equities.
