Despite the ever increasing number ofelections, market volatility remains near historic lows. Opinion polls were right to suggest that Macron would win the Presidential election in France and are also indicating the Conservative party will increase their majority in the UK. As with any prediction made in ink, I could look stupid in a few months’ time, but I cannot help but feel that market volatility must rise. Of course it could well be triggered by another cause.
We were delighted that Schroders were recently ranked highest in a ShareAction report assessing the responsible investment (RI) performance and transparency of 40 of the largest asset managers in Europe. Embedded across the range of Schroder managed funds that we invest in on behalf of clients, it is also the process we leverage when managing directly invested portfolios.
I look forward to seeing a number of you at our Annual Charity Investment Lecture on Wednesday 24th May at the Royal Institution or at our other upcoming events.
