Unlike at the start of the year when risks were skewed negatively, the opportunity/risk trade-off is more balanced today—depending on the bridges to cross. However, the opportunities are much more nuanced in a market environment that is challenged by the repricing of financial assets in the wake of rising interest rates.
“The macro backdrop feels threatening and confusing,” acknowledges Michael Grant, Co-CIO and Senior Co-Portfolio Manager of Calamos Phineus Long/Short Fund (CPLIX). “And yet the threats are possibilities. They’re not certainties, and therefore I’m thinking of them as dangerous bridges to cross.”
Grant expands on this view in his recently published 45-page Dangerous Bridges to Cross commentary, including narrative and charts. Dangerous Bridges is an Investment Professionals-only piece, available to be downloaded here.
