The absolute and relative performance of broad asset classes is systematically related to macroeconomic trends, both cyclical and secular. These trends are inflation, interest rates, actual gross domestic product (GDP), profits, and income growth. The business cycle includes a monetary policy cycle, a profit cycle, credit cycles, inventory cycles, and cycles in housing and durable goods demand. Each business cycle has a pattern that rhymes while not precisely repeating. In other words, “every cycle is the same except for what’s different.” Plenty of studies suggest these macroeconomic factors explain the variance in asset prices. Take, for example, Black Rock; they identified six macroeconomic factors that can explain 90% of the market variance.
The Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal, commissioned by State Street Global Advisors, a large asset management company. It currently resides in front of the New York Stock Exchange building in Manhattan's financial district in New York City.
Fearless Girl was commissioned to advertise for an index fund that comprises gender-diverse companies with a relatively high percentage of women among their senior leadership.
To us, the Fearless Girl represents the present and past inequality in the Wall Street elite. Not so long ago, Wall Street was one big men's club of smoke-filled rooms with very few females on the trading floor. To the degree that they were welcome, their role was isolated to secretaries and administrative duties. While the atmosphere has changed, there is still more work to do. Here at Omega was strive to create a culture of diversity towards both race and gender. We spotlight the Fearless Girl as a reminder that we must do more. We support and value the women in Wall Street and encourage other financial firms to do the same.
