Geopolitical and investment risk are melding in a day and age when economic populism looms large, while inflation rises and bond yields hit historic lows. Across growth markets and beyond, investors need to consider methods of insulating their portfolios against these conditions.


While every investor has different needs and objectives, defensive investments can be considered across three main areas: equities, bonds, private markets

Equities: Putting together an equity risk management strategy and hedging against tail risk.

Bonds: Managing against the rate rise environment.

Private markets: Investing in private equity, private debt, or infrastructure for investors who can tolerate illiquidity
