The inflation inflection: Adjusting to the new paradigm

Portfolios should be prepared for higher inflation and should contain not only assets that can mitigate against and take advantage of inflation, but also assets that can diversify against the uncertainty and volatility of the journey.

Asset Allocation Committee Outlook 1Q22

A fundamentally robust economy and a positive earnings and default outlook make the case for holding risky assets through 2022, in our view. But the likely transition to structurally higher inflation and higher interest rates, plus the risk of central bank policy errors, could be a recipe for elevated volatility.

Fixed Income Investment Outlook 1Q 2022

With inflation top-of-mind for investors, we believe the Federal Reserve’s reaction function will likely be a key driver of real yields, the dollar and risk markets this year. Although we anticipate that inflation levels will ease, the decline will likely be shorter-lived and shallower than some expect.

Equity Market Outlook 1Q 2022

Given such a long list of concerns—from high asset valuations to a pandemic—the S&P 500 Index returns of 31%, 18% and 29% through 2019, 2020 and 2021 is impressive. Something more fundamental than that long list of concerns has kept on driving the market higher.

Asset Allocation Committee Outlook 4Q 2021

The immediate hurdles that we believe investors need to clear include supply disruptions and rising input costs, tighter fiscal and monetary conditions, and threats to growth in China. But which markets do we favor when core government bond yields remain so low?

Fixed Income Investment Outlook 4Q 2021

A potential default in China and shifting policy in Europe have been key developments in an environment of volatility and higher yields. Investors should focus on reorienting portfolios in light of the 'two-way' investment environment that will likely emerge in 2022.

Durable, sustainable, adaptable: Identifying potential “Transition Winners”

In the modern economy, the best long-term prospects belong to companies that have a durable competitive position, do little to no harm to society or the environment, and can adapt to change.

Transitioning to net-zero investing

Support for the goal of net-zero emissions gained strong momentum during 2020. What does this imply for market participants, and what initial steps can asset owners and managers take on this daunting path?

Asset Allocation Committee Outlook 2Q21

The arrival of coronavirus vaccines means the economy should eventually get out of its sickbed but, faced with risks on both the upside and the downside, the Asset Allocation Committee thinks investors should take things steady.

Asset Allocation Committee Outlook 1Q21

The arrival of coronavirus vaccines means the economy should eventually get out of its sickbed, but we think investors should take things steady as the recovery is likely to be uneven and bring its own risks.

Fixed Income Investment Outlook 1Q 2021

With asset prices close to record highs, we believe many investors are underestimating the potential risk of inflation as economies recover. Here, we focus on inflation developments and how they could affect fixed income positioning in 2021.

Neuberger Berman's senior investment leaders look to the coming year in the global economy and markets and identify key themes they anticipate will guide investment decisions in 2021.

A very bond-friendly crisis

Asset Allocation Committee Outlook 2Q20

Attempts to flatten but lengthen the growth curve of COVID-19 infections through social distancing and self-isolation will hopefully save lives and keep healthcare systems running. The price to pay is a steep reduction in economic activity.

Too many retirees miss out on this valuable super fund benefit
