29.06.2012 - Credit Suisse client survey: Investors are underweight commodities amid caution over volatility
A new survey from Credit Suisse finds that a broad range of investors say they are currently underweight commodities, even though they expect to increase their allocations over the next 12 months. Credit Suisse conducted the survey as part of its 2012 New York City Commodities Day on Tuesday, June 26, with a gathering of about 320 clients covering a wide cross section of institutional investors, distributors, mutual funds and hedge funds. "While investment in Commodities continues to grow, in the near term most participants are exercising caution amid market volatility and large macro risks like we're seeing in Europe," said Oscar Bleetstein, Head of Americas Institutional Sales for Commodities at Credit Suisse. "Our annual Commodities Day event helps our clients to navigate this challenging environment by presenting insight from across the institutional divisions of Credit Suisse." (Press Release)
