Positioning for the unexpected
When market consensus is heavily positioned for one outcome, it pays to evaluate the exact opposite occurring.
Consider inflation. It has been drifting down in Australia over the last fifteen years, and is now as 1%. Consensus is for lower inflation.
Nader Naeimi, Head of Dynamic Markets,and Portfolio Manager of AMP Capital’s new exchange traded managed fund, the Dynamic Markets Fund (Hedge Fund) ASX Code: DMKT, told Livewire: “When putting a portfolio together, expectations play a big part. Inflation expectations are so low now. Falling a little bit more would be no surprise, but – what would be a surprise would be inflation going higher.”
In this video he discusses a commodities strategy that offers diversification if inflation were to surprise to the upside, as well as an overview on what to expect from the rest of the commodity complex.
