Commodities have underperformed other risk assets in 2013 as they have faced a combination of concerns relating to slower Chinese economic growth, worries over excess supply in several markets, and fears that the eventual withdrawal of quantitative easing (QE) in the US could result in a stronger dollar. More recently, sentiment towards commodities has improved somewhat as Chinese economic sentiment indicators have rallied while the Federal Reserve surprised investors by not announcing some tapering of QE in September, putting downward pressure on the dollar.
Join fund manager Daniel Belchers as he discusses topics including:
- Recent developments within the commodities space
- Current portfolio themes and positioning
- The outlook for commodities for the remainder of the year and into 2014
Online participants can submit questions at any time during the web conference.
