We are currently preparing to incorporate our tactical investment positioning into the relevant product solutions. These new investment solutions will be launched on the Swiss market during the course of 2020. We are implementing our house view in model portfolios, as shown below. Until the official launch of these new investment solutions, PostFinance is not providing any investment advice based on this tactical investment positioning and is not accepting any asset management mandates either.
Model portfolios – Swiss focus: Reduced risk still appropriate
The rapid spread of the coronavirus worldwide has shocked the markets. A recession of the global economy seems inevitable. However, the full extent of the consequences of the measures taken to combat the coronavirus will only become clearer in the course of the coming weeks and months. For this reason, we recommend keeping the risk in the portfolio at a reduced level and not yet using the current market slump as an opportunity to buy stocks. We also recommend reducing the overweight in emerging market bonds, as the creditworthiness of some countries is heavily dependent on the price of oil and is therefore suffering from the fall in prices.
