Institutional Perspectives

Critical thinking on the markets, the economy and investing from the investment teams at Columbia Threadneedle Investments.

The More Things Changeā€¦

Two quarters of market volatility appear to have only honed market trends that were in place prior to the pandemic: the persistent strength of growth stocks and narrowing market leadership. Jason Wang, global head of Quantitative Research, reviews the current equity market landscape.

Convertibles Take Off

Record new issuance in the convertibles market could be changing that market permanently. Dave King, our convertibles portfolio manager, talks about why this new influx is different and could result in permanent change for the asset class.

Recovery: 5-Year Capital Market Assumptions

Since the last analysis by the Global Asset Allocation Team, the longest expansion on record was brought to a screeching halt because of the coronavirus. We expect a large hit to growth in 2Q 2020 and a recovery to begin in the second half of the year. Given their quick round-trip, our equity market forecasts for the U.S. are, by and large, unchanged, but we expect slightly higher returns in international markets.
