First Eagle Investment Management
A stable, resistant portfolio in the face of crises :
Will 2016 be the year in which the crises deepen?
On 10th March in Paris, two important spokesmen at First Eagle Investment Management, confronted by these legitimate concerns, came to discuss their outlooks and, above all, their investment philosophy. It is not easy to predict the future, political decisions or potential defaults. Far from being fatalistic, Robert Hackney, Senior Managing Director, and Jan Vormoor, Investment Specialist, reiterated that it was possible to generate returns and limit capital losses in periods of market turbulence. The long track record enjoyed by First Eagle’s strategy confirms their approach

01 | GFI in an Absolute Return World
With the QE decided by the ECB and the stagnation of the Fed’s decision, the search for yield across fixed income instruments has become increasingly complex. We believe it is time to seek out the best opportunities in the largest investment toolbox which spans a broad range of assets – from bonds and govies to convertible and currencies – in a global universe. Our solutions are flexible and highly diversified within their investment universe – euro or global – and aim to tap value wherever it exists.
02 | The search for yield continues
Given the different stages of global economic recovery, the case for diversification and security selection becomes all the more compelling and the role of active allocation more important than ever. We believe that flexible approach of asset allocation combined with strict risk monitoring fosters better chance to capture opportunities and increased resilience of the portfolio.
03 | Asian opportunities: Indian & Japan
We believe that Indian and Japanese equity markets are full of opportunities, showing good positions in the world economy and strong will for reforms to be enforced. Our solutions benefits from our long-standing local presence notably in Asia which fosters strong market knowledge and easier access to this investment universe.
04 | QE program for equity too
We note favorable economic factors to equities: low interest rates for an extended period of time, favorable macro-economic environment, attractive dividend yield. Aiming to accompany investors riding equity markets, we offer solutions seeking return in a complex environment, in a high quality portfolios with high degree of diversification.
