Ctas Are Back As Adiversification Strategy

The Weekly Brief

Recent market developments saw an easing of market tensions as we head into the U.S. earnings season. Yet, geopolitical concerns remain and trade wars have legs, in our view. The overall backdrop is tactically supportive for risk assets after the recent 6% drawdown of the MSCI World since the peak on January 26th. Our risk appetite remains limited from a strategic standpoint. The 3-month correlation between equities and bond returns remains in positive territory, limiting portfolio diversification options. In the hedge fund space, low beta strategies continued to perform well over the recent weeks. Over the last month and since the beginning of April, CTAs and L/S Equity Market Neutral outperformed. Merger Arbitrage has been resilient, especially in light of the widening of deal spreads since the beginning of April, which we discuss on Page 2 of this report.
