Equity Markets in 2022 - The Year In Review and Looking Ahead

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Arizonar -- In the beginning of the year, it is valuable to look back at the last month, as well as the last year's economic trends. That's why Trajan Wealth's Chief Investment Officer, Udayan Mitra, CFA has written a review of the investment trends of 2022. By looking at what happened last year, we can make better predictions for what will happen this year.

Key points of the review are:
  • Investors across the board experienced sizeable drawdowns in their investment portfolios
  • The primary determinant was the Federal Reserve Bank's largest annual increase in over three decades
  • Tightening monetary policy and higher interest rates, has brought valuation in the broad asset classes towards their long-term averages
  • The bond market also looks reasonable from a valuation perspective
  • We continue to believe that high global indebtedness poses a distinct refinancing challenge for lower-quality issuers.
  • We advocate a more "active" portfolio management approach
  • We continue to advocate a broadly diversified portfolio based on individual risk-tolerance thresholds
