These objective indicators identify the segments with positive expected returns. Then, using correlation and volatility, an optimization process determines the weight to these segments with the goal of creating a portfolio with maximum diversification while reducing risk. ...

    ETFs to Capture the Growth of Expanding Infrastructure Needs

    Money managers are betting on the ongoing need to upgrade and expand the world's infrastructure to accommodate the growing global economy and rising population. Exchange traded fund investors can also tap into this industry through infrastructure sector-specific strategies. Private-equity firms have raised a record $68.2 billion for infrastructure investing for the first three quarters of the year, up 18% over the same period last year and surpassing the $66.2 billion for all of 2016, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    The Benefits of Real Asset Investing

    MORRIS: In essence one of the things we have accomplished with these three products is to reduce the volatility inherent in all markets, and in particular very volatile markets like the real asset sectors. It’s another way, in a sense, for investors, by keeping those profits through the cycle, they can actually compound their money in a slightly different way as opposed to a buy-and-hold strategy for long periods of time. In some ways this is kind of a marriage of our fundamental investing, long-only investing heritage, particularly in emerging markets and global markets and natural resources.

    Current Economic Tailwinds Are Powering Real Assets

    As the headwinds are likely to continue to dissipate, the potential benefits of real asset investing are coming into clearer focus. Notably, an allocation to real assets can be used to help investors enhance portfolio diversification, gain exposure to global growth, and hedge against the impact of inflation. As the current environment progresses, it is a good time to consider the impact of inflation and an allocation to real assets.

    Shifting Economic Winds Could Be Good for Real Assets

    Inflation is something that has not been seen in well over a decade, but the ingredients are there: a strong U.S. economy, unemployment at historic lows, and the recent stimuli of tax reform, deregulation, and government spending, which may not even have fully taken hold yet. Plus, recent indications from the Fed continue to indicate a potentially more aggressive approach to tightening. In developed countries, inflation had languished below the central bank’s target level for many years.

    Are Real Assets in the Goldilocks Zone?

    To many market observers, the first quarter of 2016 marked the low point for sectors commonly associated with real assets. Stagnant global growth, oversupplied commodities markets, a strong U.S. dollar, and natural resource companies with bloated balance sheets overridden by enormous debt all combined to create tremendous headwinds that obscured the potential benefits of adding real assets to an investment portfolio. The recent environment, characterized by economic growth and heightened inflation expectations, provides an ideal backdrop for investors to consider real assets and their potential benefits.
