“Practical men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back.” John Maynard Keynes

The year is 2003 and a long argument has ensued over gold and inflation. Gold is trading […]

InvestNow News 23rd Aug – AMP Capital – US still looking okay … for now

Bevan Graham – Managing Director and Chief Economist, AMP Capital New Zealand

The recent inversion of the US yield curve has generated renewed angst about the health of the US economy. Our view on this is unchanged from the comments we provided in the July edition of Quarterly Strategic Outlook; quantitative easing has collapsed the term premium, which […]

Fisher Funds

How much could your money have grown?

Bruce McLachlan – Chief Executive Officer – 22 August, 2019

Happy 21st

You can hear their advocates yelling from the rooftops, and from every podium they can access. The global trend in funds management is overwhelmingly towards low-cost passive funds. There is a school of thought (often communicated more like a religion) that says active managers cannot beat the market on […]

Find out how global shares can be rewarding and reduce risk – Fisher Funds

Kiwis love to travel. Extending the same adventurous spirit to your investment portfolio can be rewarding and reduce risk.

Having grown up in small town New Zealand I always wanted to travel. See the world, explore big cities, see the bright lights. Many Kiwis have the travel bug and our travel stats show that we love to travel to exotic locations – we don’t just jump across the ditch.

While we may be adventurous travellers, when […]

How a mega-trend and a moat leads to a valuable fixed income investment – Fisher Funds

What makes a good fixed income investment?

So what makes a good borrower?

Sometimes we are lending for long periods and a lot can change over that time. So it’s important […]

InvestNow News 23rd Aug – Harbour – Inversion Irrelevance


Inversion Irrelevance – Harbour Asset Management

  • The US yield curve briefly inverted last week, sparking predictions of recession
  • Whilst US activity is slowing, the prospect of recession is not borne out by the data
  • The NZ yield curve is not inverted, and inversion has not been a useful predictor of recession
  • NZ economic indicators are not signalling recession but global risks do provide a negative skew to RBNZ Official Cash Rate outcomes in the near term

InvestNow News 23rd Aug – Nikko – July Investment Update

14th August 2019

It’s been four months since we wrote in this commentary that the market was undecided between whether recent market rallies were pointing towards an impending correction (a euphemistic term used to describe a sudden drop in prices), or the foundations for further expansion.
