Standpoint & RCM Webinar - October 2020
Eric Crittenden, CIO of Standpoint, joins a webinar with RCM's Jeff Malec to discuss how Eric sees investment opportunities right now. Eric and Jeff talk about how most bonds are dependent on interest rates and how Eric evaluates the options in the alternatives space.
- Vanguard, Blackrock, and PIMCO estimate the expected future return for U.S. aggregate bonds to be below 2%.
- High yield bonds are not effective diversifiers to equities. High yield bonds tend to lose money at the same time equity prices are declining.
- Most “alternatives” are ineffective diversifiers because they take on the same risks as equity or fixed income based investments.
- An All-Weather approach has historically delivered competitive returns in bull markets and downside protection in bear markets.
