Turbulent times: drivers, opportunities and outlook


We are seeing attractive opportunities emerge amidst market volatility.

In this video, we explain the reasons for market volatility and discuss what this means for SMSF investors.

Featuring: Jeff Brunton (Investment Director), Simon Warner (Head of Global Fixed Income), Sonia Baillie (Head of Credit Research) and Shane Oliver (Head of Investment Strategy and Chief Economist)

Global macroeconomic uncertainty has been a driver of volatility

Investment markets dislike uncertainty. There are three main areas of global uncertainty which have contributed to market volatility:

Oil price weakness has led to wider credit market spreads

The significant fall in oil prices has negatively impacted global credit markets. There are concerns that the fall in oil prices will lead to an increase in debt defaults by energy and commodity issuers. This has seen credit spreads widen not only for the energy and commodity sectors, but across the broader credit market.

Turning down the noise and finding opportunities

It’s important to remember that markets do experience weakness and volatility through the cycle. We expect volatility is likely to remain elevated in the near term, but are seeing attractive opportunities emerge amidst this volatility.
