The Reality Of Investment Risk

In less than two months’ time, on January 3, 2018, the European Union’s (EU) Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) will become law, introducing enormous changes to the operational processes at buy-side and sell-side organisations. MiFID II is an EU-centric regulation but its reverberations will be felt globally, meaning Asia-Pacific (APAC) financial institutions need to check that they are in total compliance with the new rules. The real estate market collapses when interest rates rise because mortgages are more expensive, leading to a decline in demand among homeowners and investors. A classic example of the disastrous impact of rising interest rates on housing is the bursting of the U.S. housing bubble which started in 2006. It was largely accelerated by a sharp rise in variable mortgage interest rates, followed by the federal funds rate, which rose from 2.25% at the beginning of 2005 to 5.25% in late 2006.

The tightening phase should gain momentum this month, with the vast majority of economists polled expecting a quarter percentage point rate rise, largely due to a tight labour market and robust economic growth in 2017. This will represent the third interest rate hike in 2017 and will take the benchmark federal funds rate to a range of 1.25% to 1.5%.

InflationInflation A rise in the cost of goods and services over a set period of time. This means a dollar can buy fewer goods over time. In most cases, inflation is measured by the Consumer Price Index. + read full definition means higher consumer prices. This often slows sales and reduces profits.

The ISDA Master Agreement also contains an Illegality” termination event, which is triggered when it becomes illegal for a party to make or receive payments or deliveries or otherwise to comply with obligations under the Master Agreement in question; however, we consider it unlikely that this termination event would be triggered in relation to existing trades by Brexit. If specific termination events had been built into an agreement to deal with, say, the investment manager of a transacting fund losing the right to do business in a relevant jurisdiction, Brexit could result in the early termination of a number of transactions.

A stock version of a vigilante would seek to effect lawmakers and policymakers by slamming equity rates.


Bond yields began to soar on Feb. 2 after U.S. government data demonstrated the biggest wage gains since 2009, convincing investors of the growing threat of inflation, long tame since the 2007-2009 recession.
