London Trip Report: Brexit - The Aftermath

- The CSPP, the ECB’s corporate sector bond buying programme, has artificially inflated European high-yield markets
- While CSPP keeps spreads muted, much greater credit differentiation emerges, as idiosyncratic, event and liquidity risks increase
- The CSPP and poor liquidity have dramatically sharpened gap risk for investors and traders – particularly if a company does not deliver on their financials or if they miss on their milestones in their restructuring

- The CSPP drives yield-seeking investors further down the credit spectrum and/or forces them to hold longer duration papers
- In the US, we could see a tipping point in inflation in 3Q, as higher energy prices and wage pressure percolate through the system
- Equity managers consider the violent move out of cyclicals into expensive defensive stocks as overdone and are fearful of a counter-trend rally
- Equity investors seek to implement strategies that distinguish between assets that are likely to remain “impaired permanently” (notably stocks predicated on the UK domestic economy, i.e. FTSE 3ftsef50) and those that are likely to recover once uncertainties around Brexit will be fading away
- After Brexit, put options on the FTSE 100 performed poorly, as this crowded trade was closed out by many others at the same time, while institutional investors sold the volatility spike on those days, hammering volatility even more in a falling market and leading to inefficient hedging strategies

Trip Report: London

- European growth remains weak despite massive stimulus measures by the Central Bank

- The economic recovery continues to be dampened by a sluggish implementation of structural reforms

- The inflation forecast remains unchanged at 1.6% for 2018 which is below the target of 2% despite the ultra-expansive monetary policy

- Markets are trading sideways and may break out over the coming months whereas a positive breakout would be the contrarian bet

- The strong rebound across emerging markets is expected to be short lived as the fundamentals need to catch up significantly

- Managers become increasingly bullish on gold and bearish on the USD against EUR and JPY

- Crude oil will continue its recovery on the back of an improving demand and supply balance and is expected to trade up to USD 80 per barrel by 2017
