Confidence Returns As Investors Back US And Asia For Returns

By Anna Peel. Originally published at ValueWalk.

Confidence
  • Confidence has risen in all regions
  • After the biggest fall in March, confidence in the European sector has the largest increase this month
  • Europe has rebounded but it remains less favourable than Asia and the US as uncertainty remains

Q1 2022 hedge fund letters, conferences and more

“Investor confidence was hit last month as the terrible events in Ukraine unfolded, and the world struggled to make sense of the horror of war. In the first weeks of the conflict, market volatility increased, and retail investors turned to perceived safe havens – gold, cash and total return funds which prioritise capital preservation. The investment region facing the most uncertainty was Europe, as investors feared contagion risk, and the reliance of much of the continent on Russian energy supplies. This month, confidence is returning, but there are still clear concerns about the uncertain outlook, with investors feeling most optimistic about North America and Asia Pacific markets. Fund flows over the past month reflect this, with investors buying into US equity funds, and global equity funds to diversify their geographical exposure.”
