Where Activists Find Value Despite Market Turbulence

The Weekly Brief

The threats exchanged between the U.S. and China regarding trade and the imminence of tariff implementation spurred investors to reprice an escalation risk. Assets in China and Asia, industrials and resources sectors, as well as export-driven stocks all underperformed. The trade risk-premium still seems moderate as investors remain unconvinced that tensions will degenerate in a large-scale trade-war. Hedge funds were resilient. Attributable to their limited net exposures to the above assets and their holdings in defensives, they have become a top protection against trade risks. This week, Emerging Markets and Distressed focused strategies bore the brunt of the impact. By contrast, CTAs benefitted from their long European bond exposure and Event-Driven were reasonably immune from trade stress.
