Investment Commentary – Q1 2019
With global stock markets falling sharply in the final quarter of 2018, as the new year started there was some trepidation that such moves could gather further momentum. In fact, the steepness of the sell-off provided the conditions – with many stocks being oversold and sentiment depressed – for a strong bounce in equity markets in January. This continued, with a few wobbles, through February and March allowing most leading markets to post encouraging returns for the quarter as a whole.

Rocq Capital’s Adam Cox explains the benefits of complementing traditional equity and bond investments with ‘alternatives’.
As bond markets approach what many perceive to be the end of a 30-year bull market and equity markets hit highs at the same time, the question on many investors’ lips is how they can protect capital if markets were to see a simultaneous fall in the value of both equities and bonds.
Rocq Capital is delighted to be involved with Wimbledon, the UK’s top hockey club and wishes them well as they take part in two prestigious tournaments.
Rocq Capital’s name features on the Wimbledon Hockey Club shirt as it takes part in the Men’s Euro Hockey League in Eindhoven, Holland over Easter and at the England Hockey League Finals in London the following weekend.
Wimbledon will be playing in its second European Championships and have been drawn against UHC Hamburg on Saturday which is being streamed live on ehlhockey.tv. The Londoners have been England Champions for the past two seasons and have topped the league this year which sets them up well for the play offs at Lee Valley against the other top English teams a week later.
Their squad includes six members of the GB Olympic squad from Rio 2016, James Bailey, Mike Hoare, Simon Mantell, Phil Roper, Henry Weir and Ian Sloane, most of whom remain in the central programme for Tokyo 2020.
