Institutional Perspectives

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

2020: U.S. Growth Slows to Boring

In the absence of more stimulus, such as government spending or tax policy changes to induce additional consumption, we expect economic growth to slow to trend levels in 2020, with the pace of job growth likely to slow down relative to 2019 explains Anwiti Bahuguna, PH.D., Head of Multi Asset Strategy.

Traditional Valuation Falls Short: Understanding Intangible Assets

Hard to see. Hard to define. Hard to value. Intangible assets are a critical component of a company's value. Columbia Threadneedle Investments, in conjunction with Institutional Investor's Custom Research Lab, researched the topic of intangible assets and the importance of fundamental analysis in uncovering hidden value.

Uncertainty Starts A New Decade: Be Flexible, Be Defensive or Be Different

Uncertainty does not signal a retreat from the market writes Gene Tannuzzo, Deputy Global Head of Fixed Income. Economic risk may be on the rise, but there are areas of the fixed income market that can still provide investors with attractive levels of risk and return.

Medium-Term Single Digit Returns

Equities are currently enjoying their longest ever bull run. Bond markets, meanwhile, have been trading upwards for almost four decades — to such an extent that almost a third of the global bond market now trades on negative yields. Add to that a growing likelihood of a recession within the next five years. This adds up to lower expected returns, says Joshua Kutin, Head of Asset Allocation, North America. Positive, but lower.
