Nowhere to hide from volatility?

2018 has been a volatile year across regions and asset classes. While US stockmarkets have enjoyed extended rallies, sharp corrections in February and October showed investors’ faith is still fragile. Other regional stockmarkets have suffered more frequent bouts of volatility. Meanwhile, traditional ‘safe-haven’ government bonds from developed markets have failed to consistently provide investors with the protection they might normally expect. US Treasuries have felt the impact of US interest rate rises, and yields on government bonds from Germany, Japan and the UK have limited room to reduce further.
