This Month's Insights

  • November 2016
    Singapore Stock Market Offers Selective Opportunities

    It has been a choppy year for Asian equities as Fed policy, oil prices, Brexit, slower growth from China, the U.S. Presidential election and several other key events dictated stock price movements.


  • October 2016
    Five Years Later, Hope For Asia

    It has been a disappointing ride for Asian investors in the last five to six years. From end-2010 to August 2016, the MSCI Asia ex-Japan index which is a measure of Asian equities has posted a gain of 18 per cent (2.9 per cent per annum) versus 66 per cent (9.3 per cent per annum) for global equities as measured by the MSCI World Index.


  • September 2016
    Rising volatility from U.S. elections

    Investors are more worried about this November’s U.S. presidential election than in any other U.S. electoral cycle in recent memory. While polls and markets are expecting a Hillary Clinton victory, Brexit’s surprise reminds us not to be too complacent.


  • August 2016
    Hunt for yield in a more uncertain world

    Post-Brexit, markets are venturing deeper into uncharted territory, with developed market bond yields falling to record lows and now nearly a third of the world’s government bonds are trading at negative yields.


  • July 2016
    U.K. Votes for Brexit

    The U.K. has defied expectations and voted to leave the European Union (EU). Aside from the inevitable plunge in Pound and drop in risk assets, we need to consider the economic implications for three areas.


  • June 2016
    Nobody really understands gold

    Gold, being a safe haven asset which yields no interest, was expected to be shunned by interest-seeking investors this year, with improving global economic fundamentals, and consequently, higher interest rate environment.


  • May 2016
    Negative Interest Rates - What it Means for the Economy and Markets

    Negative interest rates appear to have overtaken Quantitative Easing (QE) as the new buzzword in financial markets. It has become the weapon of choice for central banks looking to add that extra push to their economies.


  • Apr 2016
    Trump on Trade

    It looks like Donald Trump could win the nomination to be the Republican Party candidate in the November election. He has defied expectations so we have to consider the possibility that he is elected President.
