An excerpt from this podcast with Michael Blayney, Pendal’s head of multi-asset

What are the big lessons investors should take from 2022?

“The first one is that volatility in financial markets is a normal thing,” says Penal’s Michael Blayney in this fast podcast.

“It can obviously cause short-term pain, but it also creates opportunities for investors who are willing to take a long-term view when value arises.”

The second lesson relates to the correlation between bonds and equities.

“People had assumed bonds and equities would always move in opposite directions with that negative correlation we’ve seen over the last decade or two.

“But the reality is that correlations and diversification benefits of various asset classes do vary over time.

“So it’s important to have more than just bonds and equities in a mix.

“We believe in having meaningful allocations to alternative assets. Some of the exposures there —  particularly those that have given us a bit more energy price exposure or some commodity-linked exposures — have performed quite well in the last year and helped cushion the downside for investors.”

In this podcast Michael also discusses the current value of major asset classes and suitable portfolio settings.
