Geopolitics, and the glitches in gold and govvies

By John Roe

We believe the effective options for hedging risk are shrinking, as I discussed on Bloomberg TV.



In response to the storming of the US Capitol, I explained to Bloomberg TV the limitations we see in gold and government bonds for hedging risk. We think the effective options are shrinking and that portfolio construction needs to evolve accordingly.

With failed football dreams behind him, John applies the same level of enthusiasm to investing and how to improve outcomes by battling behavioural biases. He leads on oil research, but also gets involved in a wide range of macro topics. That love of variety also explains his craft beer fascination. Hard to shut up, he’s a regular guest on Bloomberg, a conference speaker and an LGIM Director. His analytical thinking benefits from being an Actuary with an economics degree and having previously worked as a strategist at RBS.
