opportunities there and in a broader sense, we are getting more defensive outside of that. increasing our utilities, looking to decrease some of the more highly of the cyclical areas of the market. and some of the high yield areas especially european high-yield. 600 is upean stoxx 20%. give us a sense of corporate credit versus corporate equity. how does that relationship work? >> at times they work well and they move in lockstep. after we have seen the programs from central banks. assets, the alternative starting to look more attractive. as yields go up and government bonds with equity look like they are going through a recovery phase and leverage starts rising, those are risks to
3:06 am
corporate bonds. attractivetill looks but the risks are starting to build then and worry as. moving more to defensive holding, higher levels of cash and being up -- being opportunistic. i think that is what 2017 will be about. guy: you said something earlier about the relationship with politics and currency, is that a current -- currency trade? is that a growth trade driven by the u.s. or is it a stronger dollar trade having an impact on european exports and the potential fallout? >> currency is in there. the euro will come under more pressure this year. inflationary numbers are a little higher that nothing to move the ecb towards a tighter start. we may get some tapering with that. the currency will continue to be under pressure and it will help european currencies recovery.
3:07 am
u.s. growthe pattern in improving, it is a good time for european equities to look to move higher. they may be expensive but as we look for a longer-term perspective, it is there. you would have thought within the first term of a donald trump presidency, you're likely to see that happen. the market at the moment is pricing in reflation. when does it start to price in recession? back to the come budget. it is -- if the fiscal stimulus is not as big as the market is expecting, maybe it is focused more towards people with money rather than people that do not have money and their propensity to spend. everyone risks i think could face in terms of equity markets and credit markets.
3:08 am

3:09 am
equities? investment, great last year. 10.5%. guy: you are an income investor. >> not so great. that changes as we move into fiscal stimulus because it tends to be more inflationary. where you spend, save, and invest will probably have to go into assets that benefit from growth and not from lower interest rates. guy: we will talk about which risk events is giving investors the biggest amount of concern. could a european political surprise trump trump. outlook isss buoyant. we are joined by a guest from lloyds. kuwait capping

3:14 am
she will get in. that will be on the radar. but i think the german elections will be more interesting. we have seen reports today that marine le pen will have to finance her election campaign. i think that gets really difficult to do. the costs of a campaign these days is pretty high. donald trump had to put up a lot of his own money to get there as well. financed -- hemp said he did it on a small amount of money relative to history. maybe marine le pen can repeat that. main you have the three political players in europe all facing elections with italy, france, and germany. the italian one is not official but we know it is coming. they are getting more skeptical about the european project and that will worry investors greatly. that the euro relies on confidence.
3:15 am
area, and the way the euro works in the european union works will continue ad infinitum. if people start worrying that is not the case, that is an enormous risk event. we will all be watching european politics again. is that going to put off u.s. investors? they are pretty skeptical about europe's ability to carry on with his current political structure. the architecture will change they believe. will they be looking at europe and saying -- we are not going anywhere near that or will they say your is going down in the dollar is getting stronger, corporate profits could be a little stronger. the rational part of my brain is thinking this could be a bonus for europe in which case i want to piece of that. u.s. i think if you are a
3:16 am
corporation looking at where you invest around the world, you will have a lot of action at home in the next year and potential he have a lot of repatriation of cash back home. that is going to be a lot of focus at home. they cannot ignore your. if we are right and we are starting to see inflation and a small recovery, that may be an area where they are interested in terms of acquisition versus investment. andrew, 2016 was a gear for global politics. donald trump, brexit really stand out. i lost count of the number of research pieces and articles that i read over christmas talking about how european politics are going to be dominant in 2017. is that actually going to be the case? we have priced in a lot.
3:17 am
we should understand the risks and the tail risks associated with them. andrew: i was just listening to your guest talking about how to thousand 17 will be dominated by europe and i cannot see how it would be any other way. in addition to germany and netherlandslso have and possible snap elections in italy and greece. vote,brexit and the u.s. you cannot discount to anything. -- do not forget that we both brexit and donald trump happened in 2016, those event will play out in 2017. in addition to the year of elections in europe, you will also have article 50 and brexit playing out, and the donald trump administration playing out. we had the playbill, we know the act or us and the story but we have no idea how it will play
3:18 am
out. guy: there is one thing that i took away from 2016. these lyrical events we think will be catastrophes, are not catastrophes at least in terms of financial markets. be though could also that the jury is out on that one. we had the brexit vote though it has not been triggered yet. who knows how that will play out. and though donald trump was elected, he has not taken office yet and we have not seen how geopolitics will play out or trade will play out under his administration. i don't know. what i do know is that investors are looking at geopolitics were closely than ever and as your previous guest was saying, france and germany are big ones and angela merkel who has been very resilient she is also very vulnerable as we saw in berlin
3:19 am
which set off a lot of attacks on her on social media in germany. there is a lot of uncertainty anywhere you slice it. andrew, managing editor. thank you. about thepoint financial markets being shocking prices of political risks are becoming more important. andrew is right -- we do not know what breaks it means yet or what donald trump means yet. waitit for the budget and to see what the fiscal story will be. if you could take one thing away from 2016, the markets are as clueless as the rest of us when it comes to positioning for this and pricing for it. investorsink that need to learn from 2016 that politics do not hit economics right away.
3:20 am
it takes time to put policies in place. the political wrangling to get your policies through parliament takes a lot of time as well. we get caught up in the event. guy: how do i position for that? do i take risk off the table or do i disperse risk? how do i position myself for these events because 2016 taught us that if you position one way or the other aggressively, you are probably wrong. luke: it is about the companies. it is about the individual investments and not about the markets. the market is getting caught up. i think in that sense, barclays is right about it being earnings and not politics. but that has always been the case in the long run. you have to sit through the volatility while you are waiting for the returns to come through. guy: it is a complicated year

3:25 am
guy: will it be her? luke: probably not. she does not have to be chair. she can still retain the governor seat until 2019. but i think if she goes, she goes. if she goes though i think others will move out. fmocbut we do expect the to be more hawkish. yes, especially in terms of language. guy: how close is the market to pricing in the fed not reinvesting what it has on its alanson sheet? luke: i don't think that has come on its radar yet. proper temperthe tantrum we had a few years back when they started talking about that in the first place. but they have said quite clearly that they want to get through rate rises first. guy: we have a couple of rate
