Triggered by the pandemic and the resulting policies that accelerated long-building structural trends, such as aging demographics, deglobalization, and decarbonization, the world is now returning to the pre-1995 norm, when economies frequently oscillated between cycles — different stages of growth/recession and inflation/deflation. This could impact the equity landscape in several ways. A couple to consider: Increasing country and sector dispersion could mean that risk mitigation and global diversification among equities become more critical; and the expansion of market breadth beyond top tech stocks could reinforce the case for active management as the golden age of passive investing wanes. We think it is important for investors to rethink their approach to equity markets and we remain optimistic that opportunities lie ahead for those who can.
