Searching For A Free Lunch

The first six months of 2022 have been tough for investors with sharp drops across both equity and bond markets. The last time US equities recorded a similar fall in the first six months of a year was sixty years ago at which time President Kennedy was facing escalating tensions in Cuba between the US and the Soviet Union. Things have been no better for US sovereign debt which recorded the worst first six months for a calendar year since the US Constitution was ratified in 1788, a year before the US Treasury was founded!

With inflation escalating and nominal interest rates starting to rise, are we seeing the end of easy money? Graham Harrison, Managing Director of the ARC Group talks through our latest commentary and explains out why your investment managers skill has never been so valuable.

With interest rates trending down for more than 40 years, investors have enjoyed a powerful tailwind supporting outsized bond and equity market returns. When in 2007 it looked like the party might be ending, central banks responded by providing liquidity stimulus through quantitative easing, expanding their balance sheets and turning easy money into free money.

ARC Group Managing Director talks through the January commentary - "Noise - Cacophony or Symphony?"

Noise: Cacophony or Symphony?

Investing is a tricky but unavoidable business for those looking to secure their financial futures. One answer as to how to invest is to follow the advice of Warren Buffett to his wife that on his death she should invest by purchasing an index fund. Sounds simple but it assumes knowledge of which index or indices should be tracked. It is also rather disingenuous as Warren Buffett clearly continues to believe that his concentrated stock approach can outperform a passive investment strategy or surely he would have implemented one within Berkshire Hathaway.
