From Long-Term Trends to Actionable Investment Advice
Tasked with constantly re-evaluating and prioritising its portfolio allocations, the leadership of a major sovereign asset manager engages MAP to advise on its investment strategy.
Exposed primarily in the United States, Europe and Asia, our client not only needs to understand day-to-day investment developments but, more importantly for a long-horizon investor, it also requires a nuanced macro view of the direction of the global economy. Further, as a sovereign actor, the fund must ensure its sustainability while maintaining coherence with the government's national priorities. Our client's investment strategy increasingly aligns with MAP's core view of an Archipelago World: a growing fragmentation of power, capital and ideas.
MAP has a trusted, independent advisory role, working directly with the decision-makers at the fund. Leveraging MAP's unique blend of investment expertise and political insights, our team offers macro intelligence across key markets and exposures. We translate long-term trends into investment advice in the face of a wide range of macro developments — including demographic change in China, political changes in the United States, democratic transitions in Europe, oil-price volatility and migration crises.
As part of our advisory engagement we have developed a range of sophisticated scenarios drawing on input from the firm’s partners and senior advisors with regional expertise. We work with our client through regular strategic planning sessions, scenario analysis workshops, investment briefs and presentations, offering critical advice alongside that of the senior management team.
