Value as a style with structured solutions

Viewpoint

A combination of factors (reduction of uncertainty around the US election, optimism on the recent news of the Covid19 vaccine and a steepening of the yield curve) has been the trigger for an increasing interest for value areas of the economy. In our view, this trend has sufficient reasons to continue in the short term, although we continue to believe in some growth areas of the economy as well.

“Value” is, however, an opportunity in a much broader context. Investors may consider including “value” in their portfolio to provide diversification and return potential for the short term. Structured products can be handy for investors looking for a combined solution.
