London Value Investor Conference 2022: Chris Hohn On Making Money And Saving The World

Chris Hohn the founder and manager of TCI Fund Management was the star speaker at this year's London Value Investor Conference, which took place on May 19th. The investor has earned himself a reputation for being one of the world's most successful hedge fund managers over the past few decades. TCI, which stands for The Read More

He says:“The three major equity indexes on Wall Street are experiencing their worst stretch of losses in decades, and this is being echoed globally.

A Yield-Starved Environment

“It comes amid investors' concerns over inflation, which is forcing central banks to slam the breaks on their economies, the ongoing war in Ukraine , Covid lockdowns in China's manufacturing heartlands known as the 'factory of the world', and some household name companies posting weak results.

“This backdrop is creating a yield-starved environment for investors.”

He continues:“As such, for those looking for both capital appreciation and capital preservation, now is the time to consider diversifying into less traditional, return-enhancing asset classes.

“These could include venture capital, structured products, cryptocurrencies, high dividend stock, hedge funds, managed futures, and direct real estate , amongst others.”

“Such investments could also be useful tools to improve the risk-return characteristics of your investment portfolio. This is because they increase diversification and reduce volatility, due to their low correlations to more traditional investments such as stocks and bonds; and they can hedge some portfolio exposures.”

However, says the deVere CEO, considering that these investments are often more complex than their traditional counterparts, working alongside a good fund manager will likely be critical to ensuring return-boosting results.

He goes on to say that whilst less conventional asset classes should also be considered, investors should remain invested in the traditional markets too“because financial history teaches us that stock markets go up over time.”

Nigel Green concludes:“Yield-starved investors should explore less traditional opportunities, not only for potentially higher returns, but also as they provide diversification and downside protection for their portfolios.”
