2019 Market Outlook - Hedge Funds: Opportunities in Shifting and Volatile Markets


As quantitative easing ends, investors should prepare themselves for higher volatility. The unwinding of central bank balance sheets removes a major source of market stability. We expect turning points in global economic growth trends and episodic shocks from geopolitical events will lead to higher volatility and less predictable asset class correlations, ushering in an investment environment very supportive of active management. Representing the most innovative and unconstrained form of active management, we believe hedge funds are well positioned to exploit and magnify opportunities in a way that passive and long-only active managers simply can’t.
