Chan Ai Mei, Chief Marketing & Distribution Officer of Affin Hwang AM said, “As we enter 2019, we remain confident that our portfolios are well positioned to weather the volatility ahead. Whilst, the market faces some headwinds from the ongoing US-China trade war and slower growth, we do see opportunities to bargain-hunt as valuations have become more attractive in certain market segments.”

“There could be a return of foreign fund flows to emerging markets amidst growing consensus of an earlier pause to the US rate hike cycle and the dollar strength now tapering off, as current investor positioning has been light with lots of money at the side-lines. We advise investors to keep perspective and take the opportunity to build their positions for the long-term through a diversified portfolio capable of enduring all types of market cycles.”
