In what can be expected to still be volatile currency markets, the US dollar looks set to lose further ground in 2023 as its lustre as a high-yielding hedge fades. Expect the euro and the Japanese yen to pick up the baton as both economies profit from the gradual reopening of the Chinese economy now that Beijing has dropped its strict Covid-fighting regime.
Listen to this Talking heads podcast with John Bradley, head of foreign exchange, and chief market strategist Daniel Morris as they discuss the dollar’s sizeable correction in recent months and the likelihood that currency markets will see more interest in non-dollar cross rates.

Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).
Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
