1. What opportunities and challenges do you see for the year ahead?

Like every year, 2019 again, started off on an interesting note. This time, we started off with a very, very strong recovery coming after what happened during Q4 of 2018. However, the global landscape hasn't fundamentally changed. I think geopolitical risks still dominate the headlines. Today, I might feel like we're moving more towards a resolution. But, given the motivations behind these geopolitics, the situation can change very quickly. I think as investors, it's probably still a time to remain optimistic, yes, but on the whole, relatively conservative, relatively ‘batten down the hatches’, if I may express it like that. And show there's enough asymmetry in the return profile of portfolios, and show there's defensiveness on the downside, but keep invested in the markets nevertheless, as things look better in the short run.
