Market Sentiment Pessimistic

Old Mutual conference tackles equity market turbulence

With all the uncertainty we are seeing in global equity markets at the moment, it is often helpful to corral some of the best investment brains under one roof to provide some perspective, including how fund managers should respond.

Volatility in equity markets is likely to continue during 2016: that was the predominant feeling among fund managers, asset allocators and hedge fund selectors attending an Alternatives Seminar hosted by Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI), which manages £7.4 billion in alternatives, and held at the Corpus Christi College, Oxford on 13-14 April. Asked whether they expected that the higher levels of equity market volatility over the last 12 months would persist during this year, the majority responded yes, in a straw poll taken at the event.

Though an informal survey, it was supported by detailed studies of market sentiment undertaken by the OMGI Global Equities team, led by Dr Ian Heslop, who spoke at the event. North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Japan are all positioned in pessimistic sentiment territory (see Fig. 1), according to the team’s proprietary market environment indicators.
