This year started so well in equity markets. After Phase 1 US/China trade deal it was expected that business confidence would improve and we started to see global economic growth data improve. However, the coronavirus outbreak has knocked all of this.
Still, some things don’t change; equity sectors offer a focused investment tool whatever the scenario.
In this webinar we will look at one way of picking winning sectors. Rebecca Chesworth, author of SPDR’s popular Sector Compass and Sector Picks, will talk to Daniel Ung in the SPDR Quantitative Research & Analysis team, about his new quantitative model and what it can teach us about selecting a sector.

While global growth is expected to slow in 2019, we feel that equities are still the place to be given that both economic and earnings growth remains largely favourable. However, investors should be cognisant of the volatility associated with late economic cycles. For this reason, it may be necessary for investors to build defensiveness in their investment portfolios by strengthening their core.
