Commodities Investors Focus on Fundamentals as Ebbing Correlation Brings Market ‘Sea Change’

29/06/2013 08:57 (294 Day 20:41 minutes ago)

The FINANCIAL -- Investors are focusing on fundamental strategies to generate benchmark beating returns as the correlation between commodities and other asset classes breaks down, a new survey from Credit Suisse finds.

“To have this kind of turnout on a day during a week of extreme market turbulence is a testament to Credit Suisse’s ability to deliver the type of products and thought leadership that top investors are looking for,” said Oscar Bleetstein, Head of Americas Institutional Sales for Commodities at Credit Suisse. “The market is in a sea change and across the bank we’re providing investors with new products to meet the challenge,” he added.

42% of investors said they see fundamentally based directional trading as the best way to generate pure long-short alpha, the goal identified by half those polled as their rationale for investing in commodities, found the survey.

About half of those asked said they expect commodities prices to maintain current levels or rise in the coming 12 months. While that’s in line with predictions from last year’s CS Commodities Day survey, far fewer this year expect prices to jump by 10% or more as the “fear premium” dissipates, Bleetstein said.

53% expect volatility to be higher in the coming 12 months than it was in the past 12 months. 46% of investors polled think we’ve seen the peak in crude oil prices. 40% identified themselves as currently “underweight” commodities, according to the survey.
