Citi Global Wealth Investments Head & Chief Investment Officer David Bailin: “Over time, the US stock market has never bottomed before an associated recession has even begun, so we regard recent equity upside as a bear market rally.  A year like 2022 can make holding excess cash seem tempting, but the clear lesson of history is that this almost always leads to missing opportunities when markets begin to recover. For 2023, we reiterate the fundamental wisdom of keeping portfolios fully invested, anticipating the opportunities that we expect.”

 

Citi Steven Wieting

Citi Global Wealth Investments Chief Investment Strategist & Chief Economist Steven Wieting: “The sharp declines across many asset classes in 2022 has left long-term valuations more attractive.

For the first time in several years, for example, we see genuine portfolio value in fixed income. Short duration US Treasuries present a compelling alternative to holding cash.”

 

Citi Ken Peng

Citi Global Wealth Investments Head of Asia Investment Strategy Ken Peng: “In equities, we seek exposure to recovery in China and Hong Kong, with initial focus on re-opening beneficiaries, followed by industries that have policy support. In fixed income, we favour higher rated financials, energy, materials and tech/telecom.”

  3. Markets Lead Economies – The poor market returns of 2022 anticipate the economic weakness we expect in 2023.  Markets in 2023 will lead the economic recovery we foresee for 2024, providing opportunities for investors in 2023.  
  4. 2023 First Milestone – Need to get through a recession in the US that has not started yet.  Tightening will reduce nominal spending growth by more than half, raise US unemployment above 5% and cause a 10% decline in corporate earnings.   Fed will likely reduce the demand for labor sufficiently to slow services inflation just as high inventories are already curtailing goods inflation. 
  5. 2023 2nd Milestone – Need to get through a deeper recession in Europe 
  6. 2023 3rd Milestone – When the Fed does finally reduce rates for the first time in 2023.
  7. Higher return forecasts due to 2022 decline (10-year annualised) – Global Equities 10% , Global Fixed 5.1%, Cash 3.4%
  8. Investment Opportunities – Fixed income, Loans in private markets 
  9. Equities – Companies with strong balance sheets & healthy cash flows.  Dividends paying companies. 
  10. Alternative investments – Specialist managers will be able to deploy capital into areas of distress and illiquidity.  Favorable valuations for investors into Venture capital.  For Real estate, value may be earned over time by taking illiquidity risk when others are less willing to do so.
