It is hard to overstate how far free and unlimited central bank liquidity has rewired the financial system. As central bankers extract themselves from the monetary rabbit hole they have burrowed their way into, the damage to traditional portfolios is likely to be considerable, says Jamie Dannhauser of Ruffer LLP.

It is hard to overstate how far free and unlimited central bank liquidity has rewired the financial system. As central bankers extract themselves from the monetary rabbit hole they have burrowed their way into, the damage to traditional portfolios is likely to be considerable.

This tightening of monetary policy is happening because inflation has returned – with a vengeance. Central banks are lifting short-term interest rates at a brisk pace. But there is an additional danger for liquidation-prone markets: quantitative tightening (QT).

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are both terms that have become murky through over-use and misuse. Investors are increasingly sceptical of companies claiming their technology is powered by AI, says Gabriel Douville, principal of Sectoral Asset Management Inc.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are both terms that have become murky through over-use and misuse. Investors are increasingly sceptical of companies claiming their technology is powered by AI.

They question if, in fact, the promised mechanics are little more than computer-driven automation or merely standard multiple, or even single, linear regressions. Deeper investigation often reveals the software does not begin to approach sophisticated ML or deep-learning (DL) algorithms.

“Private equity forms the major part of the economic fabric of many developed countries. Therefore, it shouldn’t be viewed merely as an alternative asset, but rather a building block in the constitution of a portfolio – much like bonds,” says Edouard Nouvellon, founder of European financial consultancy Risk Return.
