Outlook 2019: Perspectives from Citi Private Bank – Citi – 12.18.18


On Demand Soon.

Please join Steven Wieting, Citi Private Bank’s Chief Investment Strategist, as he shares the Private Bank’s Outlook for 2019 which focuses on three multi-year investment themes:

  • Make your cash work much harder: Investing cash in income-yielding assets and reinvesting income can potentially enhance portfolio returns, preserve wealth, meet liquidity requirements, and improve diversification. We see numerous opportunities for generating income from fixed income and receiving distributions from alternative investments.
  • Safeguarding assets: Today’s late-cycle conditions may be an opportune time to seek to safeguard your assets. To do so, we stress strategies that pursue market upside while shielding against downside, global diversification, and the prudent use of leverage.
  • Unstoppable trends: Unstoppable trends are major, multi-year phenomena with the potential to transform the world around us. Among such trends, we think the rise of Asia, increasing longevity, and digital disruption could have far-reaching impacts upon your portfolios.
