Each year, the firm’s research team puts their collective heads together to envision what the future might hold, and which trends are likely to take shape. While not investment recommendations, they are an interesting look at the cultural landscape that could affect the future investment environment for everyone.

“This year, we are seeing so many significant events and shifts in fundamental aspects of our society and economy, but these can be viewed in really different ways,” says Arnerich Massena Co-CEO and Chief Investment Officer Bryan Shipley, CFA, CAIA. “As people become more divided and access information from different places, we are all seeing things unfold from very different angles, which is why we titled our piece ‘Choose Your Own Reality’ this year. The trends we outline have both positive and negative aspects, presenting investors with both risks and opportunities.”

Senior Research Analyst Arthur Coyne, CFA, adds, “how investors view the world and understand reality will affect how they invest in it. In this piece, we encourage investors to engage in self-examination to help direct them in how they want to not only choose their own reality, but ultimately have an impact on the future they create.”
