2019 – is this the year to de-risk?

2019 has the potential to see slowing global economic growth, increased market volatility and continued trade tensions, not to mention the flatter shape of the US yield curve and a twitchy Fed.

De-risking client portfolios seems a sensible option, but in doing so, do you have to forgo returns potential?

BMO Global Asset Management’s ETF Investment Strategist, Morgane Delledonne, takes an in-depth look at the state of the world and analyses what we have learned from a difficult 2018.

Looking further into 2019, she explores how the use of defensive equity strategies and high-quality credit ETFs has the potential to increase income and enhance portfolio diversification away from the risk of an equity bear market.

Capital is at risk and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
