Our Chief Investment Office and experts share insights into our house view and macro trends.
Investing in technology today is rather like the ‘Star Wars’ saga. While it has the redemptive potential of the Light Side, there is also a Dark Side. So, how do investors identify the ‘good’ tech companies and those that are not only ethical, but that will be successful in the long term?
Our investment conference this year with political broadcaster, Andrew Neil, tech fund manager, Ben Rogoff and Canaccord's own CIO, Michel Perera looked at what investors can learn from the current world of politics.
In the last week or so headlines have been dominated by talk of a recession. As concerns mount about the US-China trade war and slowing growth in the global economy, markets have fallen around the world.
In the US at least, upward market moves of the magnitude we have seen this year are unusual, especially when they are not preceded by a more significant correction (or market fall) than the one which occurred in the final quarter of 2018. Hence, we remain somewhat more cautious than of late.
If investment firms had been asked a few years ago: ‘Should we pay attention to politicians?’ the chances are they would have answered ‘No’. Can we continue to say this with impunity?

IMPORTANT: Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
