In recent weeks, financial markets around the world have shown a lot of volatility again, this is mainly caused by all the uncertainties about trade issues. This will most likely continue until we know whether there is going to be a final deal between China and the U.S. However, there are a few developments that are worth mentioning:
The U.S. Dollar Index seems to have peaked at the end of 2016 and despite a small bounce this year is set to move lower in coming years
U.S. rates might have peaked already, the Fed has already started a more dovish language
The U.S. stock market is valued almost double the valuation of Europe, something that does not seem to be sustainable
Precious metals are starting to move higher again, reflecting lower interest rates and hedge against uncertainty
The current environment offers a unique opportunity for U.S. investors to get international investment diversification at very attractive levels.
We want to offer clients a turnkey solution to benefit from the improved outlook for international investments and are therefore starting to offer a U.S. custody setup as of January 1, 2019. This means clients will be able to invest in our international investment strategies and still keep their money at home in the U.S., all you need is to open an account with our U.S. custody partner. It is the first time that we offer this solution with U.S. custody but with international investments now looking so attractively valued, the time has come to offer this new setup to our client.
Please get in touch if you wish to receive more information about this new solution that BFI Infinity is starting to offer.
