Strategies in Review

Horizon’s Gain, Protect and Spend portfolios ended Q2 fully invested. Markets are moving fast these days and we believe our flexible process helps us navigate those changes.

Outlook on the Economy

The economic framework that served Horizon well during the pandemic – stimulus versus virus – is being retired. Both of those drivers have peaked. We are shifting to watching supply versus demand for insights into the economic reopening and the Federal Reserve’s response to inflation.

The scary 2020 plunge in stocks still haunts investors. Our advisor survey shows nearly half of respondents say market uncertainty and catastrophic loss are the things their clients are most worried about.
What is your preferred asset for replacing bonds amid low fixed-income yields?
What are your expectations for a 60/40 model moving forward?
Inflation concerns are rising, bonds are tumbling: which scenario do you forsee?
In the wake of 2020’s equity rout and rebound to record highs, how has client risk-taking changed so far?

Today, we can see an emerging problem with the “do it yourself,” “set it and forget it,” “autopilot” approach – a problem that can be most clearly illustrated using target date funds.
