1. Are investors overestimating return and underestimating risk?

Investors have been a bit spoilt over the years. I think last year was a bit of a wakeup call for investors. Even this year, we had very good markets in the first few months of this year. I think what investors are definitely not realising is that risks have increased tremendously. We have risks introduced that previously were not there. A good example of that would be the potential of a full-fledged trade war even a tech war, and I think markets are reflecting that. There's still a high level of complacency in the markets, and I feel that investors are not fully comprehending that there are a lot more risks going into the rest of this year than where they came from.
