After a challenging year I would like to take a moment to share some thoughts with you all.
2022 has been a remarkably unfavourable year for financial markets with both bond and equity markets performing negatively. In tumultuous times, markets tend to overshoot, echoing in a rather dramatic way the underlying economic and social trends. This was the case in 2021 when we experienced some of the best performances in recent history, and it has probably been the case this year as well.
However, I can still see many reasons for optimism. I believe that some key economic imbalances will normalise in 2023 and markets will anticipate this fundamental trend. We will help you stay the course of your investment journeys whilst focusing on seizing the many opportunities for growth that will arise.
The backdrop is, indeed, some of the most convenient market valuations of the past 20 years. Our long-term expected returns (a metric that we use to estimate asset profitability, yet not a guarantee of future returns) are much better than they have been in the past decade, especially for bonds. I look forward to sharing these insights with you during our annual strategic asset allocation conference that will be held in February.
