Dr. David Kelly, CFA, chief global strategist and head of global market insights team for JP Morgan Funds Kelly spoke at length about the current market environment, likening the latest numbers to an Irish summerdamp and disappointing. However, he emphasized that profits can still grow in the environment and investors need to get back into the markets. He dispelled concerns that the easy money has been made, noting there has never been easy money. Kellys recommendation to see the best portfolio results right now: underweight fixed income, overweight US equities. You have to look at total return; you cant just look at yield.

Effective risk management is both offensive and defensive, he said, and taking the top down approach recommended by PIMCO helps in selecting the best manager and mitigating risk for the investor. Comparison is the death of happiness. Chris Goolgasian, CFA, CPA, CAIA, head of portfolio management for North and South America at State Street Global Advisors Loosely quoting literary great Mark Twain, Goolgasian sums up the current investor environment, making the point that investors are always looking for the next best thing, and they consistently think there is something out there they dont know about. He stressed that the optimistic unknown doesnt actually exist. http://www.financialservicesmarketing.com/etfs-mutual-funds/5-soundbites-from-the-experts-at-the-2014-morningstar-etf-conference/
