Sequoia Specialist Investments


A common viewpoint amongst many investors is one of uncertainty regarding the current geopolitical and global economic outlook.

Since reaching all-time highs in US and Australian equity indices in July this year, global investor sentiment has since deteriorated as investors focused on downside external risks :

  • Trade tensions between the US and China;
  • The potential for a “hard” Brexit;
  • Increasingly violent Hong Kong protests; and
  • Growing concerns of an approaching global recession as the US yield curve inverted between 2 year and 10 year Treasury yields.
