Video: Lazard on managing volatility

Trade war talk is largely "rhetoric driven by a deal-making president in an election year", according to Rupert Hope, portfolio manager on the Lazard multi-asset investment team.

Hope presented last week at the FSA Multi-Asset Masterclass in Bangkok on “Navigating more volatile international markets”.

In the video, Hope explains why the investment team has a generally positive conviction on global investment. But the team is avoiding EM countries that have trade as a big part of GDP, not due to a possible trade war but because negative sentiment is priced in.

He also lays out the single biggest risk to his portfolio in the next 8-12 months.
