Unncessary Evils

Summer 2019

Basic Test. New Providence is led by experienced professionals who view investment counseling as a profession, not a business, and are committed to the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our work. Such work centers on the shaping and ongoing refinement of both comprehensive and specialized investment programs for a select group of wealthy families and endowed charities. Given the US-centric bias of portfolios stewarded by many recipients of this essay — a bias at odds with the very full current pricing of assets flattered by it — the time is ripe for such principals to undertake a thorough review of their investment policies and practices. read more ❯

One would be justified in thinking that they had decided to give the stock market a reason to go up. If that was in fact their intention, it worked. The S&P 500 which had been down 13.5% in the fourth quarter, was up 13.6% in the first quarter (see Table 1). As a result, equity holders should be more than satisfied with returns for the quarter. However, a closer look at fundamental developments present a more nuanced view, one that highlights a deceleration in the growth trajectory of the U.S. economy and corporate earnings. read more ❯
