Investment compass – November 2022

The monthly newsletter includes a topical editorial, our positioning including the conclusions from the analyses, a market overview of the most important asset classes, an assessment of the current economic situation in various regions, and our current model portfolios.

Ailing Europe

Europe cuts a miserable picture at the moment, both economically and politically. When it comes to investments in Europe, caution is advised.

Europe’s problems will also have an adverse impact on the Swiss economy.

Positioning

The markets are celebrating the fall in inflation in the USA

We took advantage of the rapid recovery on equity markets last month to sell off European equities. Instead, we’re bulking up our US equity allocation, while remaining restrained towards equity investments overall.

Market overview

Recovery rally after disastrous September

The equity markets made up lost ground last month, almost completely recouping the previous month’s losses. The bond markets are currently hovering around their low point for the year.

Economy

Winter recession ahead

The USA is expected to go into recession over the winter, and Europe will shortly enter one, too.

Model portfolios

Shift in regional equity market positioning

The economy, inflation and monetary policy may once again take the wind out of the sails of European equities.
