  • A sharp turn for the worse in US-China trade talks, the risk of a hard Brexit and renewed Italian fiscal woes have spoiled the rally in risk assets.

  • Given the high political uncertainty, we further reduce the pro-risk tilt in our portfolios. In particular, we cut our overweight in equities to almost neutral.

  • Thanks to solid domestic demand and accommodative central banks, we still see selected opportunities e.g. in longer dated corporate bonds.

  • We still expect a EUR/USD recovery later this year on fading US growth outperformance. But political uncertainties prevent us from taking an active position now.
