Asset Allocation: preparing trust portfolios for 2016
Managers of 'multi-asset' investment trusts are taking care not to be caught napping as markets resume their merry-go-round.
How should investors position themselves for 2016? We speak to managers of ‘multi-asset’ investment trusts BlackRock Income Strategies Trust (BIST ), Ruffer Investment Company (RICA ) and Seneca Global Income & Growth (SIGT ) who have the freedom to invest in asset classes such as bonds and property as well as equities (shares).
Their view is that central banks and the direction of interest rates in the US, UK, Europe and Japan are set to dominate markets again next year.
Europe and Japan have further to recover and so are favoured to make the best gains, according to the managers, but markets are expected to be volatile so having a widely spread portfolio is important.
