Mark Nash, head of fixed income, Ian Heslop, head of global equities, and Lloyd Harris, manager of the Old Mutual Financials Contingent Capital Fund, each explain why fundamental shifts in the global economic backdrop mean that now may be a good time for investors to consider allocating to strategies seeking returns that are uncorrelated with traditional asset classes.
