Atlanta (I-Newswire) January 7, 2013 - On Friday, Balentine released its 2013 Capital Markets Forecast, a comprehensive collection of the firm’s best thinking and its signature investment research piece for the new year. This marks the twelfth year that Balentine, an Atlanta-based independent, employee-owned firm serving individuals, families and not-for-profit institutions, has published this annual long-term forecast, which identifies trends in over 30 asset classes and provides a broad framework for the firm’s Investment strategy team. Founded in 2009, Balentine currently has 24 employees and $1.6 billion in assets under management.
Each year, Balentine’s Investment Strategy Team uses its updated projections to restructure its strategic asset allocation targets in key areas to maximize the efficiency of its strategies. In this Capital Markets Forecast, Balentine describes these strategies and how the Investment Strategy Team employs them to bridge the gap between what is possible from today’s starting point and what is required for clients to reach their long-term investment objectives.
“Our forecast provides the quantitative "blueprint" to both manage risk and maximize opportunities in 2013 and beyond,” says Adrian Cronje, CFA®, PH.D. Chief Investment Officer of Balentine. “This blueprint has proven particularly reliable, with actual returns tracking closely to our projections over a 7-year cycle.”
The document includes research pieces focusing on Sociological, Technological, Environmental, Economic and Political (STEEP) factors as they impact investment outlook. The Market Insights section of the forecast covers topics such as developing world deleveraging cycles, socio-cultural factors influencing economic development in emerging markets and the role of active management in today’s economic environment.
