Best Execution – Summer 2017
It is ironic in these times of heightened political uncertainty that the so-called fear index, the VIX, has been relatively calm across equities, rates, FX and commodities. One reason may be that investors have become more immune to unexpected events, so that Theresa May’s failure to win a majority only provoked a short, but sharp reaction before equilibrium was restored. However, they may get da jolt as the clouds are gathering with elevated equity valuations, declining margins and mounting debt.
Outside the political sphere, one thing is certain, the January 2018 deadline for MiFID II and this underpins much of the content of this issue, with the fixed income universe as our asset class focus.
