We recently released a note outlining how the folks at Emperor think about investing for the long term, and that includes making investment decisions during this Coronavirus outbreak. Highlighting the way in which Emperor's managers choose a certain share over another as a key component in their investment strategy, the main message in this note is that an investor needs to calibrate (a fancy word for 'align') their investments based on their time frame and risk tolerance.
That said, the global market fallout has affected some shares more than others. On the other hand, some shares should be expected to outperform during such a crisis.
Emperor Asset Management have created, not one, but two COVID-19 bundles. A locally-themed one, and the other for investors looking for international exposure in their EasyEquities USD accounts. The managed portfolios are for investors that have the risk appetite to invest in stocks that should outperform over the medium term. These portfolios have been put together using Emperor's algorithmic process, as well as considering what the Emperor team fundamentally believe could outperform in the near term given Coronavirus market dynamics.
