In the wake of “the year of the shutdown,” uncertainty still remains despite promising news on the vaccine front. COVID-19, like other events that can trigger market volatility, affected valuations—and created opportunities—that can be leveraged in the course of implementing a multi-sector relative value approach. According to Newfleet, spread sectors will offer better value than U.S. Treasuries and other government-related debt in 2021.
Newfleet continues its “up-in-quality” bias across portfolios while currently constructive on the macroeconomic outlook. Stabilizing economic fundamentals, combined with continued provision of excess liquidity (beyond the real economy’s needs) by the major central banks should support further appreciation of risk assets. Newfleet is confident that in this environment, there will be opportunities to exploit inefficiencies within sectors and take advantage of dislocations. Credit selection, a major driver of performance last year, once again is in focus based on valuations.
