Stay on course in the stock market

The global economy has recently been shaken by US gambits over trade tariffs on steel and aluminium. China has responded by announcing tariffs on goods such as pork, but it is too early to draw parallels with 1930, when world trade shrank by 70 percent. Instead, the global economy appears to be facing an unusually resilient period, with a synchronised upturn in both the United States and elsewhere – and in a number of different industries. Danske Bank's strategist Mattias Sundling and Catella Fonder's Henrik Gripenvik, who manages the Catella Aktiv Sverige Hållbarhet fund, are quite unanimous.

All-weather jackets and cockroaches

Brilliant spring sunshine, but still several degrees below zero in the capital. The snow has stayed around unusually late in the season, but the daytime thaw hints of warmer and lighter times to come. In this period of transition, I found myself thinking about the all-weather jacket. The ultimate piece of clothing, designed to withstand wind and rain but easily unzipped and opened up when the sun is shining or when you're working up a sweat. And this can be used as a metaphor in the hunt for the ultimate portfolio.

Catella Hedgefond – Returns driven mainly by company-specific picks

2018 began with rising stock prices and low volatility, but in February the equity market fell and volatility increased significantly. Catella Hedgefond’s ambition is to create a good risk-adjusted return with a low risk and with a low correlation to the equity and fixed income markets. So far this year, Catella Hedgefond has gained +0.5 percent at a significantly lower risk than the equity market (which generated 0.7 percent). The fund’s return is driven by company-specific picks, not market risk, and these company-specific cases are both long and short positions.

Market trends

We can sum up 2017 with one word: stability. Despite continued interest rate hikes and trimmed balance sheets by the US Federal Reserve, despite reduced purchasing of securities by the European Central Bank, despite an inconsistent US president, and despite North Korea launching missiles and testing atom bombs, the world's financial markets have been stable. Even in Sweden, which for many years has been something of a growth wonderkid and where reality has caught up, the market as a whole has been stable.
