Institutional investors evenly split on positioning portfolios against a market correction

RELATED TOPICS​

Institutional investors are evenly split on whether to position their portfolios against a market correction, according to new research by ING IM, with nearly half (47 per cent) positioning their portfolios in anticipation of a global correction in 2015 while 47 per cent are not doing so.

The majority (57%) of institutional investors say the prospect of a correction makes multi-asset investing more attractive, including 15 per cent who strongly believe this is the case. Only nine per cent disagree and another 10 per cent believe there will not be a correction.

Valentijn van Nieuwenhuijzen, Head of Strategy, Multi-Asset at ING Investment Management (ING IM), says: “Risk assets have enjoyed a rally this year on the back of improving global economic data and positive market dynamics, including sentiment, momentum and investment flows. We are largely optimistic about markets and global economic growth should accelerate mildly over the next two years as developed markets leave the downturn cycle of their credit phase.

“But this is not to say there are no more risks out there: Greece, Ukraine, China, oil, politics and US monetary policy are just a few prominent risks. Markets can certainly be volatile; the key is to have a flexible investment approach that can respond rapidly to market changes.”
