Turn of the risk dial

Until more of the liquidity in the global banking system circulates, growth will be anaemic at best and intensifying risk aversion threatens self-fulfilment.

As this year progressed it was increasingly characterised by the ‘risk on, risk off’ approach taken by big investors, creating massive volatility in markets. As the year ends, it would appear that most of the investors have settled into a ‘risk off’ stance.

In fact it isn’t just big investors that have adopted a defensive posture but banks and individuals; the banks driven as much by necessity as caution and individuals by the still-recent memory of what happened to them in 2009.
