Lord Rothschild: "Share Prices Are At Unprecedented Levels, This Is Not A Time To Add Risk"

Tyler Durden's picture

One year ago, the financial world was abuzz when the bond manager of what was once the world's biggest bond fund had a dire prediction about how "all of this" will end (spoiler: not well).

Two months later, it was the turn of another financial icon - if from a vastly different legacy and pedigree - that of Rothschild Investment Trust Chairman himself, Lord Jacob Rothschild, who echoed Bill Gross with an unexpectedly gloomy warning in his 2016 half-year financial report, saying that central bankers are continuing "what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world. We are therefore in uncharted waters and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low interest rates, with some 30% of global government debt at negative yields, combined with quantitative easing on a massive scale."

His outlook was just as gloomy: "the geo-political situation has deteriorated with the UK having voted to leave the European Union, the presidential election in the US  in November is likely to be unusually fraught, while the situation in China remains opaque and the slowing down of economic growth will surely lead to problems. Conflict in the Middle East continues and is unlikely to be resolved for many years. We have already felt the consequences of this in France, Germany and the USA in terrorist attacks."

One year later, the scion of the most (in)famous name in all of finance, is back and in his latest letter to RIT Capital Partners investors,  Lord Jacob Rotschild has released what is perhaps his gloomiest outlook ever; here are the highlights:

We do not believe this is an appropriate time to add to
risk. Share prices have in many cases risen to
unprecedented levels at a time when economic growth is
by no means assured. The S&P is selling at 25 times
trailing 12 months’ earnings, compared to a long-term
average of 15
, while the adjusted Shiller price earnings
ratio, which averages profits over 10 years, is
approximately 30 times.  

 

The period of monetary
accommodation may well be coming to an end.
Geopolitical problems remain widespread and are proving
increasingly difficult to resolve. We therefore retain a
moderate exposure to equity markets and have
diversified our asset allocation towards equity
investments where value creation is driven by some
identifiable catalyst or which are exposed to longer-term
positive structural trends.

Furthermore, Rothschild continued the shift away from US capital markets exposure announced one year ago, noting that "we have a particular interest in investments which will benefit from the impact of new technologies, and Far Eastern markets, influenced by the growing demand from Asian consumers." What is surprising is how aggressively Rothschild has cut its allocation to US-denominated assets in just the past 6 months.

Not surprisingly, RIT's investment portfolio continues do quite well, and has now returned over 2,200% since inception

Below is a snapshot of where every hedge fund wants to end up: the Rothschild investment portfolio.

Finally, for all those wondering where the Rothschild family fortune is hiding, here is the answer.

Are you implying that the fine gentleman is using the proceeds of our labor to enslave us? If so its his right to do so, we only possess the soul of beasts whilst he hails from the family of g_d. The proof is that we are dumb enough to mismanage our affairs and let him get away with it.

You would know wouldn't you Jake.

Exactly, and it's interesting that even he has to come out in public to push the agenda of collapsing the markets... seems they've rigged the BTFD so much, it's hard for them to stop it on cue. Of course, all that's needed is a little push from his central bankers.

If Sith Lord Jake stopped creating geopolitical chaos, then there would be no need for resolution. Sith Lord Jake is super cunt.

This is horrifying. 

Global laws forcing us to suck Jewish cock 

They can go fuck themselves and shove the holohoax up their scrawny asses 

The sooner the white European Christian race recognises that this is a war for its very survival,  and one that we haven't even started preparing for yet , the better... we should purge Europe and North America of all non European blood ... it would be ugly and violent and people would say it was evil,  but if the blacks are happier together there's Africa, and for the muzzies the middle East,  and Israel for the jews... just leave us alone

Fuck this pasty-skinned little piece of shit. I volunteer to be the one who puts the noose around his neck. Fuck him! I won't even bind his wrists and feet. Watching that little fucker kick and flail trying to save his life would be the most awesome moment to personally observe. Your time is coming 'Lord', you little fuck.

No real need for all that melodrama. Some clever fellow should just tip the old zombie off the top of the stairs.  He must pay his footmen and buttwipes a lot of cash to keep on doddering around in apparent safety.

But don't worry, God will not be mocked. Our lives on this rock seem long, but compared to eternity they pass in the blink of an eye.  I wouldn't want to be this old wretch.

Farqued Up's picture

OK, heads up, you Bitcoin addicts. You are onto a boomer, congrats. Do not hang on too long, this is looking more and more of a trap to get rid of cash and then convert it to a Gov controlled crypto. There is no earthly way that they are going to allow secrecy even if they have to execute 5-10,000 people to force their will on the people to keep us down on the plantation. King Baron will snap his fingers and the 535 clowns will make it happen here and will sic the MIC on the other countries to drag them into the fold. Of course, I don't see any of the others resisting except maybe those that are stuck with sanctions. Regardless, the cryptos will go a long way toward destroying the banks and their derivatives.

Burning question #1, when is the witching hour for the entire $ system to fold? If the screwballs start excluding countries from SWIFT, especially Russia, and the petrodollar bites the dust, that will kick-start it all.

I don't know where you went with your rant on crypto, but RE: Russia and SWIFT, they already have plans to be without the need for SWIFT. We have seen the moves happening for the change. Petrodollar death can take awhile though...

Yep, heard that one. CAF is nothing but outright, legalized, theft. But that's what one expects from government and their goons... it's the only thing they're good at.

ItsAllBollocks's picture

How much has to happen before enough is enough? We have Islamification by legislation and the creation of terrorism to control us through fear, the elimination of cash so the bankers can bleed us with negative interest rates, the illegalisation of everything for the introduction of the police state and now our history is being eliminated so the destruction of sovereign states can proceed. Nearly every country has had the public disarmed except the US but they will succeed there too, by consent or by force.
I am old, I have lived my life, perhaps that's why I can see what is happening so clearly but I fear for my children and my children's children. All my life I have been an environmentalist and passive resister but it is clear the time for pacifism is over. It is now time to stand up and fight for what is right. Time to take up arms and destroy those who are intent on destroying us. Time to eliminate our unelected leaders and reclaim our humanity. Time to end the madness by the only method they understand. It's time to fight back.

Enjoy your comments, IAB. Share you're sentiments (but have little to no faith in the majority of people who are simply unconscious.)

Great flag, btw. When are you blokes gonna cut that disgusting Union flag out of the corner and boot the Queen Lizard into touch?

Thanks. The flag is the Eureka, if you don't know it than perhaps wiki is good for a little history lesson. Cheers...

When those who normally seek to remain in the shadows begin to speak openly, you can be assured a major shift is occuring.  These people don't inject themselves into the manufactured narratives and debates of public discourse unless it is absolutely necessary to maintain their grip on power and control.

Our lord must be feeling the slipping away of his power.
