MIO performs asset class-specific and cross-asset class market research as well as macroeconomic research as part of its process for assessing investment opportunities, and for deciding how to manage our portfolios’ exposures. This includes monitoring economic conditions around the world and understanding how they compare with history, understanding historical asset returns and monitoring current asset pricing, and quantifying relationships between economic conditions and market performance. The asset classes we cover include equities, fixed income, credit, commodities, FX, among others.
