Managing Downside Risk with Global Macro Strategies 

Robert M. Rafter

Alternative Lending: Why Today and Through the Credit Cycle? 

Kenneth Michlitsch
Against a backdrop of low interest rates and tight corporate credit spreads, investors struggle to find sufficient yield from traditional fixed income. Fintech-driven alternative lending is a nascent, consumer-focused private credit asset class that potentially offers yield pick-up, as well as duration and diversification benefits.

Top 10 for ‘20 

Jim Caron
In our view, 2019 was a mid-cycle reset where the Fed cut rates three times, capital expenditure bottomed out and global GDP slowed. The bad news is that yields are low and investors are long on duration, a big risk given that the Fed will likely stay on the sidelines and not lower rates in 2020.

From Mid-Cycle Reset to Cyclical Recovery 

Jim Caron
This time last year the market projected the economy was headed into a recession, and the Fed engaged in a policy mistake by planning to hike rates above 3.00%. Instead, what we realized was 75bps of rate cuts along with cuts from global central banks and a restart of quantitative easing (QE).

The Real Problem with Low Yields 

Jim Caron
Fixed income plays a special role in managing risk because it tends to be a safer, more liquid and less volatile asset. We still think that is largely true, however, there is a catch. Traditional bond strategies may be less effective in acting as a hedge and also have less appreciation potential than when yields were higher.
