Matco Quarterly Newsletter - Q1 2017

Posted by Matco Investment Committee on Tue, Apr 18, 2017 @ 10:03 AM

In past quarterly updates, a re-occurring theme was the heightened volatility caused by a laundry list of global and geo-political events.

Matco Quarterly Newsletter - Q4 2016

Posted by Matco Investment Committee on Wed, Jan 18, 2017 @ 10:35 AM

 

Throughout the year, we discussed on several occasions the concept of “known unknowns” and “unknown unknowns”.

“Known unknowns” refer to events where the timing of the event is known but the outcome is unknown. Contrast this concept with the “unknown unknowns”, which are unexpected events that by definition leave the markets unable to anticipate the outcome and economic impacts.

The U.S. Election and a Donald Trump Victory – Assessing the Impacts

Posted by Matco Investment Committee on Wed, Nov 09, 2016 @ 09:54 AM

We have spoken in the past about events that induce volatility to one’s portfolio and have categorized them in two distinct ways; the “known unknowns” and the “unknown unknowns.”

The U.S. election fell in the category of the “known unknowns”, where the markets knew the event was on the horizon and the specific date it is was going to occur, but the outcome was unknown. The market was anticipating a Hillary Clinton (Democratic) victory, yet Donald Trump (Republican) managed to pull out a victory by a margin of 279 electoral votes to 218. The historical Br-exit vote certainly provided some foresight as to what capital markets can and will do when an event such as the U.S. election doesn’t unfold as the world and markets were anticipating.
