About This Episode

In this episode, Marcelo and Keith review how asset classes performed in 2021. Last year was a unique year in global stock markets. If you look at a chart of stock market performance for 2021, it looks pretty steady. But when you dig a little deeper you’ll see that there was style and leadership turbulence underneath.

Coming out of the end of 2020 – a period when you almost couldn’t lose in the market – 2021 was a year that separated the investors who stuck to their well-planned portfolio strategy from those who bought into the narratives and stock stories that came up earlier in the pandemic.

We will review investment strategies and principles for investors to apply with their portfolios as we head into 2022.
