Have US Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comments at Jackson Hole spooked the team as much as they spooked the market? This month, David, Will, and Craig also discuss how much attention to pay to the weakening US housing market, and finally touch on the video game industry and how it should remain an exciting place to invest for many years to come.
We may have (finally) reached peak inflation, argue David, Will and Rahab this month. Also, they explain how the Tory leadership campaign made them reassess the benefits and pitfalls of deregulation, and why they think water is an exciting investment theme for their portfolios.
This month, David, Will and Craig discuss the wide-ranging impacts of the energy market’s current stresses and complexities. Also, despite some expected post-pandemic catch-up in consumer services spending, the team aren’t tempted by many businesses that have benefited.

- Is recession in the US now a foregone conclusion?
- Will the US Federal Reserve need to cut rates in 2023?

- Are consumer staples the best form of defence in a slowing economy?
- How the team are approaching managing the portfolios in this volatile market.

Also, the team question how resilient consumer staples companies may be in the current environment and explain why they are still comfortable with composite decking manufacturer Trex despite a tough year so far.
This month, David, Will and Craig discuss managing a portfolio in a bear market and avoiding the pitfalls of emotional decisions, their love/hate relationship with the hamster wheel of earnings season, and why – despite attracting the attention of a rather eccentric billionaire – pure play social media companies have never really turned their heads.
This month, David Will and Rahab try to make sense of what simultaneous recessionary and inflationary risks mean for markets and central bank policy. Also, what does the difficult start to the year for ESG investing mean for its future? And they explain why Ulta Beauty has been surprisingly resilient despite rocky markets.

Our economic and market reviews are delivered from Rathbones Chief Investment Officer, Julian Chillingworth. He brings highlights, on the investment forecast and the outlook for global and UK markets.
Earnings are booming in the West as the recovery rolls on despite investor nervousness.
Recent inflation headlines have made for uncomfortable reading, and volatility picked up as investors remained sceptical of policymakers’ messaging. But we don’t think rising inflation is here to stay as there are too many other phenomena that will push it down.
America is opening up along with the spring blossoms, and a strong summer of spending seems to be on the way. The rebound in fortunes has helped the S&P 500 reach new highs which, as chief investment officer Julian Chillingworth notes, go hand in hand with rising yields.
Bond yields and a new season’s flowers both sprung up last month, heralding an end to the dark days of lockdown winter. Chief investment officer Julian Chillingworth ponders the big question on investors’ minds – does this also foreshadow a prolonged period of higher inflation?
After a busy start to the year there’s still a lot of uncertainty swirling around in markets. But economies tend to bounce back hard after sombre periods, and hope remains that our eventual return to ‘normal’ will be no different.
A roller-coaster of a year finished on a high note for the markets, and we start 2021 with a sense of relief that one of the most difficult years many of us have ever experienced is behind us.
With a clutch of vaccines on the way soon, equity markets were in a buoyant mood in November. But there are still a lot of things we don’t know – and even some things we don’t know that we don’t know…
Equities fell in October as investors came to terms with tighter lockdown restrictions, but hopes for a new round of US stimulus under President-elect Joe Biden have buoyed markets, and Chief investment officer Julian Chillingworth reckons we should take heart.
With summer fading into memory, a long uncertain winter of social distancing lies ahead. It’s easy to feel gloomy, but as chief investment officer Julian Chillingworth argues, we should try not to buy into the doom.
As summer winds down and the pandemic persists, governments are finding it hard to taper their support measures.
