Insight – Harmony Cautious Income fund downside protection in September while still paying 4% pa income

The key thing I’d highlight this month is actually the downside protection – Cautious Income is down 2.2% from the recent peak in early September vs a 7.8% fall for the S&P 500 and 9.4% for both the Nasdaq and FANG+ indices (not saying they deserve to be compared but many have done so whilst tech was going up!).

Yes MSCI World is flat year to date (to the 25th unlike data below), but we know that has been almost entirely driven by the performance of the mega cap growth / tech stocks which we naturally do not have much exposure to in the Cautious Income fund, given they pay little to no income.

Viewpoint – July 2022

After a torrid six months, with global equities suffering a 20% decline and most developed world sovereign bond markets producing negative returns each month in the first half of this year, there was finally relief in July. Led by Wall Street, with the S&P 500 up over 9% in the month, the MSCI World index returned 7.9%, while the JPMorgan Global Government Bond index returned 1.9%. Riskier parts of the bond market, which had sold off heavily in the first half of the year, recovered sharply, with US investment grade bonds +3.2%, high yield bonds +5.9%, and emerging market debt +4.0%.

Weekly Digest

Global Matters Weekly – The Law of Lindy

In 1964, American author and academic Albert Goldman wrote an article in US magazine The New Republic, titled ‘Lindy’s Law’. While dining at Lindy’s, a New York delicatessen, Goldman became interested in the discussions that took place between entertainment industry veterans who frequented the restaurant and would analyse the latest televised comedy shows. While the Lindy effect is a useful heuristic to apply across many aspects of our lives, we can also use it as a filter in the portfolios we manage for clients.
