Will Income Investors Be Ready for a Rebound in 2020?
US investors had reason to enter 2020 with optimism. Consumer confidence was healthy as historically low unemployment, rising wages and other contributing factors supported an accelerating US economy. Against this backdrop, Amundi Pioneer’s multi-sector portfolios were positioned for a growing economy, continued consumer strength and the pursuit of liquidity premium in overall asset allocation and security selection.
The unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 virus triggered a flight to liquidity between February 20 and March 23 that rocked markets at a magnitude and pace never before seen.
We are confident that the process deployed within our multi-sector portfolios, which demonstrated consistency in approach and strategy, remains well suited to help our clients pursue their long-term needs.32074_00_0420_Rebound2020_INST_BroV1.indd
