In their just released Multi Asset Portfolio Outlook for 4Q 2019 titled “Reduce bond exposure, look East for opportunities”, Societe Generale Global Asset Allocation Strategists adapt their portfolio to the summer’s strong gains in fixed income markets while maintaining their cautious stance, favouring assets providing yield with low volatility and portfolio protection.
