In today’s complex and volatile global environment, macro events can emerge suddenly, producing hard-to-predict tail risks that affect all classes of assets and undermine portfolio performance. A valuation approach that does not take into account changing macro trends, rising geopolitical pressures and other market shocks is no longer adequate. To protect against today’s unexpected downside shocks, and boost risk-adjusted returns, asset managers need more advanced quantitative tools and insights to assess the impact of macro trends on asset valuations.
