C WorldWide Investment Report – Q4 2020

Global Equities

BNP Paribas Asset Management

C WorldWide’s expectations for the year 2021 and the coming decade, insights on why the eventual end of Moore’s Law will not mean the end of computational progress, how the subscription model has attracted attention over the past few years, from both consumers as well as businesses and ‘Jio’ – the world’s fourth Internet that is currently emerging in India.

Strong vaccine results and the beginning of inoculations supported a broad surge in equity markets around the world. Extraordinary monetary and fiscal support should sustain a robust economic recovery in 2021. A reopening of the economy will allow pent-up consumer savings to be directed towards the service sector and significant political support for green investments should be the centre of economic growth. The Brexit deal and greater clarity after the US presidential election are also positive ­developments.

Over the quarter, the strategy’s return was 5.0%, thereby trailing the MSCI AC World Index somewhat, which returned 6.5%. The main reason for the under­performance can be attributed to a sharp comeback in more economically ­sensitive sectors, where the strategy has low exposure.
