PRESS RELEASE MARKETS
After a particularly turbulent year, the experts at Ostrum Asset Management (Ostrum AM), an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers, expect a moderate recession in 2023. However, investors could take advantage of investment opportunities and interesting entry points in the various markets, particularly in fixed income and credit. As the energy crisis continues in Europe, the greatest caution will be required in stock selection. Philippe Waechter, Head of Economic Research, Stéphane Déo, Head of Market Strategy, Alexandre Caminade, Head of Core Fixed Income and Liquid Alternatives, Philippe Berthelot, Head of Money Market and Credit Management, and Frédéric Leguay, Head of Equity Management, present their views on the economy, the markets and the investment strategies that should be favoured to find value in 2023.

PRESS RELEASE MARKETS
With inflation rising at the beginning of the year at a level not seen for more than a quarter of a century, central banks are facing a dilemma and are being forced to raise rates faster than expected. Uncertainty about the impact of rate hikes, compounded by the current geopolitical situation with the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, is causing investors to fear a possible recession. Asset managers are now obliged to adapt their investment strategies in order to be able to offer advantageous solutions that allow investors to protect themselves from inflation or to take advantage of the current environment.

PRESS RELEASE MARKETS
Experts at Ostrum Asset Management – an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers – expect the clouds to lift and risk to potentially ease in 2021 after 2020 was dominated by the Covid-19 crisis. However, challenges still remain, with growth set to vary considerably from one region to another as countries and zones have responded very differently to the crisis. Interest rates look set to edge up slightly, although remain low, and here at Ostrum AM we have reviewed our asset allocation to draw on the equity rally that kicked off at the end of 2020.

PRESS RELEASE MARKETS
2018 was a year packed full of macroeconomic twists and turns, such as the agonizing Brexit negotiations and a severely weakened Italian economy, Natixis Investment Managers’ affiliate Ostrum Asset Management believes that these risks are set to continue through into 2019. If the European Central Bank sticks to monetary policy accommodation and does not hike rates next year, the equity markets should see a transitory downtrend in the first half.
