3 economists walk into a bar… a discuss on Bull, Bear and Neutral market scenarios

InvestSense Pty Ltd


As a part of our preparation for the Portfolio Construction conference next week, we sat down (virtually) with three independent economists to devise 3 strategies aligned into Bull, Bear and Neutral scenarios.
However, they intentionally stopped short of giving an overt prognosis to these scenarios…  we eagerly await the conference to hear final conclusions. We’ll keep you posted!

On the panel-
Andrew Hunt- Hunt Economics

Andrew Hunt Economics Ltd was founded in 2001 and it is committed to providing an entirely independent, primarily flow of funds-based approach to macro-economic analysis for select clients in both the financial and commercial sectors. The analysis is heavily focused on tracking and understanding changes in the ‘balance sheet behaviour’ of various economic agents and predicting the resulting flows that these changes may initiate.
Andrew spent over 12 years as an economist advising both the Board and portfolio managers of the Dresdner Bank Group, initially in the UK and subsequently based in the Asian Region. In the late 1980s while based in London, Andrew worked extensively on the UK’s Lawson Boom and subsequent unwinding, as well as on the various travails and ultimate break-up of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. Andrew also covered the events that led up to the S&L Crisis of 1989-90.
