Institutional Perspectives

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

Alternative Beta Primer

Bill Landes, PhD., Deputy Head of Global Investment Solutions and Alternative Investments, examines the use of alternative betas as a strategy for increasing portfolio diversification and improving risk-adjusted returns. Alternative betas have minimal market directionality, and are less correlated with traditional markets, making them good portfolio diversification tools.

Asian Bond Markets Versus the Federal Reserve Bank

In sharp contrast to 2013, when the suggestion of higher rates by the Fed was enough to disrupt emerging currency markets and convince investors to significantly reallocate out of emerging markets, Asian bond markets have shown resilience in response to rising U.S. interest rates and the new administration, as several of the region’s central banks continue to reflate in order to maintain a trend of stronger economic growth.

When Balance is Not Enough

Jeff Knight, Global Head of Investment Solutions, discusses the benefits of employing an adaptive approach to risk allocation. With uncertain prospects for continued gains in equities and bonds, Knight believes that a static balanced approach to risk allocation may put investors at a disadvantage.
