Z22 Research Note - Are you a Bullish Bear or a Bearish Bull?

Updated: May 17, 2023

When global markets reach new all-time highs, investors' joy is often overshadowed by the fear of an imminent recession that many economists keep predicting in regular intervals since the beginning of mankind. Our economies' heartbeat follows the rhythm of the greater and lesser debt cycles and is naturally undergoing phases of expansion and recession. Therefore, every prophet that keeps declaring the doomsday to be ahead of us is right every once in a while.

Many careers were built on being right just one time. It also happens to be that these prophets are very seldom good investors. If we are constantly expecting economic armageddon, we will never truly participate in the large upside and wealth creation, global markets have produced over the very long run. So, what can the prudent investor do to get the best of both worlds?

In our Z22 Research Note Q4-2019, we will dig deeper into the topic of hedging strategies and share with you our insights.
