No one ever said removing the punch bowl would come without challenges. Aggressively raising interest rates and withdrawing liquidity from the system (QT) made fender benders / financial accidents even more likely. One externality has been volatility, which if embraced properly is not necessarily a bad thing. Going forward, we must navigate the trilemma between growth, inflation and financial stability. We will continue to do so by relying upon top-down analysis, high conviction security selection, dynamic asset allocation and tactical positioning. As always, we will look to exploit the volatility in the marketplace by planning the trade and trading the plan.
