Behavioral Economics: Protecting Our Portfolios From…Ourselves
If Keynes and Graham were writing today, their insights—like those of Ritholz, Ellis, Shiller and others—would be taken to support what has become known as the academic study of behavioral economics. This still-nascent field is a fascination to many of us at Clear Harbor, as it offers a psychological window into the decisions that all of us make in particular economic environments, including some of the most persistently vexing attributes of investor behavior.
Clear Harbor Outlook: Q3 2014
Year-to-date, the S&P 500 rose 6.95%, while the MSCI All World (ex-US) Index gained 4.84%. The Barclays Aggregate Economic Growth , our fixed-income benchmark, returned a total 3.75%. While each Clear Harbor client account is independently constructed, I am pleased that our core debt and equity strategies continued to outperform their benchmarks over the period.
