Johanna Kyrklund, Schroders Group CIO & Co-Head of Investment:  Markets continue to be caught in the cross currents of concerns about rate increases and worries about recessionary risks. The Study found that institutional investors’ allocations to equities may look to increase as they intend to capitalize on the opportunities presented by the deglobalization, decarbonization and demographic trends. With concerns about high inflation and high interest rates, valuations matter. A renewed focus on valuations rather than speculative growth may be required.  More broadly, in terms of the impact on portfolio performance, the Study found that a number of issues are increasingly on the radar of investors: rising inflation, hawkish monetary policy stances, global conflicts and stagflation. These are all factors that Schroders as an active manager is also looking to navigate on behalf of its clients globally. We believe it’s time to be discern.”
