Citi Global Wealth Investments Issues Mid-Year Wealth Outlook 2023 – Opportunities on the Horizon: Investing Through a Slowing Economy

Citi Global Wealth Investments Issues Mid-Year Wealth Outlook 2023 – Opportunities on the Horizon: Investing Through a Slowing Economy

Citi Global Wealth Investments today released its Mid-Year Wealth Outlook 2023 report – Opportunities on the Horizon: Investing Through a Slowing Economy. This biannual report sets out Citi Global Wealth’s outlook on how investors should approach developments in the global economy, markets and geopolitics.

Though 2023 has been full of extraordinary events, Citi Global Wealth sees the remainder of the year as an opportunity. We are in a “rolling recession” where parts of the US economy are growing even as others contract. As inflation slowly eases following a period of rapid Fed rate hikes, the group believes that keeping portfolios invested is imperative. While the current asset allocation strategy remains defensive, Citi Global Wealth see numerous opportunities to adjust their portfolios over time, as the Fed shifts from interest rate hikes to cuts.

We believe that current markets will lead into a meaningful potential recovery in 2024.

“Though the broader bear market is not yet over, we are seeing significant valuation improvements in certain sectors that provide our clients with the potential to invest in higher income-generating assets and long-term growth opportunities,” said David Bailin, Chief Investment Officer at Citi Global Wealth. “Our wealth outlook for the remainder of 2023 and heading into 2024 suggests that clients may benefit most from a return to what we call ‘core investing’ – full invested portfolios that move from defense to offense, from more bonds to more equities, from US-focused to global. We favor investing in select non-U.S. equities, identifying value within U.S. markets, broadening tech and growth equity exposures and emphasizing alternative investing and private credit for suitable investors with a longer time horizon.”

Bonds are Back Again: Sustaining Income as Rates Peak

Citi Global Wealth believes that it is time for action in the fixed income space. Investors holding short term investments can seek to extend their income by extending duration. There are also many potential opportunities to diversify bond portfolios, add to duration, diversity risk and earn potentially higher yields. And private credit can add significant yield as banks retrench. Best of all, bonds will now provide the diversification benefits they lost temporarily in 2022.

Diversity Currency Exposure

The U.S. dollar (USD) rose for a decade through 2022 and saw a boost from excessive Fed tightening and energy shocks related to the war in Ukraine. The rise in the USD sharply inflated US home-biased portfolios verses portfolios holding other currencies. US equities rose to 63% of the global market cap in 2022.

As the ECB and other central banks hold rates steady in 2024 while the Fed eases, there can be opportunities for clients to diversify into non-USD assets, seeking to improve investor returns in the decade ahead.

“The strong U.S. dollar means we can buy non-U.S. assets at deeply deflated prices,” said Steven Wieting, Chief Economist and Chief Investment Strategist at Citi Global Wealth. “While we expect periodic US dollar rallies, we ultimately will see a weakening dollar, making currency exposure more critical. In addition to currency exposure, we are favoring quality, such as long-duration bonds to offset a potential credit spread widening and defensive equities with an emphasis on dividend growers and companies with strong balance sheets. As we prepare portfolios for the Fed pivot at the end of 2023, we look for industry-leading growth shares to bottom before cyclicals.”

Unstoppable Trends

Citi Global Wealth’s “Unstoppable Trends” are transformative global forces that can inform change in client portfolios.

The Mid-Year Wealth Outlook 2023 defines the following trends:

  • Digitization – Generative AI is the beginning of (another) technological revolution: the rapid adoption of AI opens the door to significant investment opportunities in the ecosystem
  • Energy Security: Unusual opportunities in an atypical energy cycle: World events and the rise of renewable energy are reshaping the energy landscape
  • G2: Putting national security interests ahead of economic cooperation: Intensifying U.S.-China tension creates challenges and opportunities for investors
  • Invest in Longevity: Healthcare demand continues to grow faster than the world economy, proving non-cyclical growth for portfolios

See Citi Global Wealth’s full Mid-Year Wealth Outlook report for full details.

Results of the MSCI 2023 Global Market Accessibility Review

Results of the MSCI 2023 Global Market Accessibility Review

MSCI Inc. (NYSE: MSCI), a leading provider of critical decision support tools and services for the global investment community, announced today the results of the MSCI 2023 Global Market Accessibility Review. The detailed report, covering market accessibility assessments for 82 markets, has been made available on MSCI’s web site at

Nigeria is not included in the MSCI 2023 Global Market Accessibility Review report released today. Information for this market will be made available on June 22, 2023, concurrent with the MSCI 2023 Annual Market Classification Review announcement. As a reminder, the MSCI Nigeria Indexes are under classification review due to repatriation constraints arising from low liquidity in the Nigerian foreign exchange market.

The MSCI Global Market Accessibility Review aims to serve as a tool to track the evolution of accessibility in individual markets and to inform market authorities of the areas perceived as not meeting international standards for which improvement would be welcomed by international institutional investors.

Consistent with prior years, the MSCI 2023 Global Market Accessibility Review provides a detailed assessment of market accessibility for each equity market included in the MSCI Indexes. In particular, it provides an evaluation of five market accessibility criteria, which are:

  • Openness to foreign ownership

  • Ease of capital inflows / outflows

  • Efficiency of the operational framework

  • Availability of investment instruments

  • Stability of the institutional framework

These five criteria are reflective of the views of international institutional investors who generally put a strong emphasis on equal treatment of investors, free flow of capital, cost of investment, unrestrictive use of stock market data and market specific risk. MSCI uses 18 distinct accessibility measures for the assessment of these five criteria, described in detail in the MSCI 2023 Global Market Accessibility Review report.

Market accessibility is one of the three criteria, along with economic development as well as size and liquidity, which determine classification of markets into Developed, Emerging, Frontier and Standalone Markets. The classification of markets is a key input in the process of index construction as it drives the composition of the investment opportunity sets to be represented. The results of the MSCI 2023 Annual Market Classification Review will be announced on June 22, 2023. More information on the MSCI Market Classification Framework is available at:

None of the Information constitutes an offer to sell (or a solicitation of an offer to buy), any security, financial product or other investment vehicle or any trading strategy.

It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Exposure to an asset class or trading strategy or other category represented by an index is only available through third party investable instruments (if any) based on that index. MSCI does not issue, sponsor, endorse, market, offer, review or otherwise express any opinion regarding any fund, ETF, derivative or other security, investment, financial product or trading strategy that is based on, linked to or seeks to provide an investment return related to the performance of any MSCI index (collectively, “Index Linked Investments”). MSCI makes no assurance that any Index Linked Investments will accurately track index performance or provide positive investment returns. MSCI Inc. is not an investment adviser or fiduciary and MSCI makes no representation regarding the advisability of investing in any Index Linked Investments.

Index returns do not represent the results of actual trading of investible assets/securities. MSCI maintains and calculates indexes, but does not manage actual assets. The calculation of indexes and index returns may deviate from the stated methodology. Index returns do not reflect payment of any sales charges or fees an investor may pay to purchase the securities underlying the index or Index Linked Investments. The imposition of these fees and charges would cause the performance of an Index Linked Investment to be different than the MSCI index performance.

NYSE American Initiates Delisting Proceedings for BiomX Warrants

Shares of the Company’s common stock and units (PHGE and PHGE.U) are unaffected by delisting proceedings of warrants and will remain trading on NYSE American

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and NESS ZIONA, Israel, June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BiomX Inc. (NYSE American: PHGE) (“BiomX” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage company advancing novel natural and engineered phage therapies that target specific pathogenic bacteria, today announced that the Company’s warrants (“the Warrants”), which have been listed on NYSE American under the ticker symbol, PHGE.WS, are in the process of being delisted. Trading in the Company’s Warrants was suspended as of Monday, June 5, 2023.

The delisting of the Company’s Warrants is expected to have no impact on the continued listing of the Company’s common stock — ticker symbol PHGE — and units — ticker symbol PHGE.U — which will continue to trade on the NYSE American.

On June 2, 2023, NYSE Regulation announced delisting proceedings with respect to the Company’s Warrants after determining that the Warrants, which were each exercisable for one-half of a share of common stock, at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, were no longer suitable for listing pursuant to Section 1001 of the NYSE American Company Guide due to the low trading price of the Warrants.

Safe Harbor

This press release contains express or implied “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as: “target,” “believe,” “expect,” “will,” “may,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “would,” “positioned,” “future,” and other similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. For example, when BiomX states that the delisting of the Company’s Warrants is expected to have no impact on the continued listing of the Company’s common stock and units, BiomX is making forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on BiomX management’s current beliefs, expectations and assumptions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of BiomX’s control. Actual results and outcomes may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, investors should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements and should review the risks and uncertainties described under the caption “Risk Factors” in BiomX’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 29, 2023 and additional disclosures BiomX makes in its other filings with the SEC, which are available on the SEC’s website at Forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this press release, and except as provided by law BiomX expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update forward-looking statements.
