The views expressed are those of the authors at the time of writing. Other teams may hold different views and make different investment decisions. The value of your investment may become worth more or less than at the time of original investment. While any third-party data used is considered reliable, its accuracy is not guaranteed. For professional, institutional, or accredited investors only.

This is a section of our 2023 Investment Outlook, where specialists from across our investment platform share insights on the economic and market forces that we expect to influence portfolios in the year to come.

Periods of economic and market change like the current one don’t come around often. To help think through the asset allocation outlook and implications, we offer views from iStrat, our investment strategy and solutions group. They share views on the central bank fight against inflation and its effects on different asset classes; strategies for mitigating downside risk and adapting to more frequent shifts in the economic cycle; and factor-based insights for volatile, sometimes directionless markets.
