CAMRADATA’s Investment Research Reports for Q1 2019 reveal market gains & increased investor confidence

RELATED TOPICS​

CAMRADATA investment reports for Q1 2019, which provide analysis of four asset classes – Diversified Growth Funds, Multi Sector Fixed Income, Emerging Markets Equity and Emerging Markets Debt – invested in by institutional investors in the market, have revealed market gains and increased investor confidence.

In each report over three years’ worth of data from CAMRADATA Live (its online manager research platform) at 31 March 2019 was analysed to produce the four reports revealing key investment trends for Q1.
 
The first quarter of 2019 brought a more positive outlook for investors, after a difficult end to 2018. Investors were encouraged by signs of a possible (albeit temporary) thaw in US-China trade tensions and by signals from the US central bank that further interest rate rises are unlikely during 2019.
 
Despite the positive performance across the four asset classes, investors continued to withdraw money from these universes with only the EMD universe managing to attract positive inflows during the quarter. However, positive performance across all four asset classes meant that only the MSFI universe saw assets under management decline over the quarter.
 
Sean Thompson, Managing Director, CAMRADATA says: “With concerns over economic slowdown; the Federal Reserve and the ECB signalled that further rate increases are unlikely before the year end and steps to unwind their long-running liquidity support programmes will be put on hold during 2019.
 
“This provided a boost to risk assets, with international equities, commodities and high-yield corporate debt markets all making significant gains. Emerging markets equities also rallied in Q1, driven by softer monetary signals from the US Federal Reserve and temporary hopes of a solution to US-China trade tensions.

“Each report has detailed analysis and commentary for these four asset classes for the start of 2019, which are essential reading for investors looking to keep abreast of what is happening in the markets.
 
“CAMRADATA Live monitors the strategies of asset managers, keeping investors up to date on what’s happening across hundreds of asset classes and helping them make more informed investment decisions.”
