The 2021 Q4 MGAM Client Update

Wow! Vanessa Avila, our Director of Client Reporting has evolved the client portal to a new level of planning utility. As you scroll through the pie charts you will notice the addition of Investment category and sub sector allocations. This takes our review process to a new level of allocation reporting mastery providing the ability to easily see the key components of the portfolio discussed in this update.
It is our belief that McGowanGroup Asset Management is poised for a great decade ahead in both relative and absolute risk adjusted performance evidenced by the results since Q4 of 2020.
As both the team and Investment Committee have evolved with a base of highly intelligent clients, applied technology is providing greater research and trading capability as well as evolving excellent service platforms.

Compelling Opportunities

Tactical Safety
What about the next correction? Over the past 35 years since the practice was founded, a key to success has been deployment of safety reserves into great assets at bargain prices after market disruptions. Our research sources indicate the potential for a tightening rate spike in 2023.
Global High Yield Lending
With cash rates near zero, money flows appear to indicate a cash flow panic on the part of institutions and pensions. The current phase investors seeking yield provides appreciation opportunities with great bond managers that have higher yielding portfolios in place. This phase could last through 2022.
Growth with Income
Dividend companies with the ability to raise payouts have also provided a long-term inflation hedge based upon previous cycles. The strong level of recent inflation leads us to the conclusion that opportunities in Healthcare and Energy Infrastructure are reasonably able to benefit from systemic inflation. Current research for our target list includes Real Estate Investment Trusts and Utilities capable of providing cleaner power.
Growth and Innovation
Equity corrections have provided and, are likely to continue to provide the ability to add great innovation companies and funds at bargain prices. The evolution of Clean Technologies and Global Technology platforms provides a foundation for future appreciation.
