How to Insulate your Portfolio in Times of Geopolitical Tension (#4/4)

Presented by

Daniel Stoianov, NTree International

About this talk

Geopolitical risk encompasses threats to inter-nation relationships on a political, economic, or military level. This heightened risk usually causes investors to seek asylum through "safe haven" assets. Of course, no asset is "safe" as prices do fluctuate: however, these assets further diversify ones portfolio and are beneficial in times of market volatility. Insulating your portfolio against geopolitical risk depends on where the tension originates. Traditional safe haven assets include the US Dollar, precious metals, and short-term bonds. In the last instalment of this series, professional investors will uncover reasons why these assets see inflows during times of tension. Which one could potentially see the highest yield?

NTree’s goal is to educate European investors on the investment opportunities in the Chinese and Commodities markets. As the Chinese economy continues to grow at breakneck pace and China remains at the forefront in innovation in high-tech sectors, the investment case for China is stronger than ever. Meanwhile, world market volatility further highlights the necessity for European investors to consider adding Commodities to their portfolios both for diversification, and for momentum. We believe that both phenomena are inextricably linked, and present unique opportunities to the discerning investor - we intend to support investors in uncovering those opportunities.
