Markets are largely efficient in the short-term. We focus on where expectations are, and where it’s most likely that future events will diverge from the collective forecast.
All things being equal, uncrowded trades are more profitable than crowded ones. We spend a lot of time analyzing where the crowds are, and trying to avoid them.
What’s the difference between long-term Treasury yields and the relative performance of cyclical vs. defensive equities? Not much. Our cross-asset focus lets us spot dislocations across asset classes.
Our investment horizon spans 3-6 months. Why? Because that’s the average duration of individual risk cycles in the post-crisis era.
Of course, markets can stay crowded longer than investors can stay solvent. Our analysis incorporates the catalysts most likely to force price discovery.
US macro data affect European sovereign yields. ECB actions impact Japanese equities. And Chinese policy drives EM currencies. We monitor it all.
“There are a lot more powerful things that move the back end of the treasury curve than a U.S. government shutdown; U.S. government shutdown is neither here nor there for risk.”
