Where to Find Equity Premium Income

The US equity market climbed higher in the first nine months of 2023, but many advisors are bracing for more volatility and are on the lookout for enhanced income.

Elevating Your Practice with Model Portfolios: The Why and How GSAM Can Help

GSAM has analyzed the asset allocation of thousands of advisor managed portfolios over the years and found that many of those portfolios cluster closely together in terms of expected return and risk characteristics. Model portfolios may help to achieve similar outcomes to what advisors are already getting while also helping advisors realign their time, reduce regulatory and due diligence burdens, establish business continuity, and leverage institutional expertise. Model portfolios, like the Goldman Sachs S&P G-MAPs, maybe a tool to achieve the same results in a simpler fashion.


The Long Cycle Continues

GSAM expects the long post-crisis economic recovery to continue in 2017 and prefers equities over credit and credit over rates. Broadening exposure beyond conventional stocks and bonds, identifying opportunities in emerging markets and deploying more dynamic asset allocation strategies are some ways to adapt.


2017 Outlook

The policy backdrop in the US will be particularly favorable for the economy, with looser fiscal policy, relatively easy monetary policy and a less stringent regulatory environment. Their eight-year US preeminence theme is intact and continues into its ninth year. While President-elect Trump’s initial policy measures with respect to tariffs and trade agreements risk jolting financial markets, he will likely adjust and change course as necessary to achieve his desired results.


Misbehavioral Finance: Countering Emotional Investment Decisions

Today’s concerns over the uneven state of the global economy, the direction of interest rates, and the price of oil – to name just a few current issues -- create a risk that emotions may unduly influence investment decisions. In our view, short-term market events and the emotions they can trigger should not drive investment choices. But how, exactly, can these factors be acknowledged while maintaining a proper focus on long-term goals and long-term investment strategies? For financial professionals, we believe today’s environment demands a renewed focus on “softer” skills such as managing behavior. Here are five common behavioral biases we often see in the marketplace as well as potential solutions we often discuss with clients.
