  • (1888PressRelease) March 02, 2011 - Manchester Capital Management, LLC Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer Ted Cronin recently appeared on Wall Street Week to discuss his views on the U.S. financial markets and global economic outlook.

    Mr. Cronin sees the strength in U.S. markets continuing due to a combination of factors including low interest rates, good corporate earnings and modest inflation. In addition, Mr. Cronin observed that financial market performance in January, often a harbinger of how markets will perform for the remainder of the year, was very positive in January 2011 and noted that the third year in a U.S. election cycle is often a positive for domestic markets.

    In certain emerging markets, Mr. Cronin has concerns about inflationary pressures. Governments in China and Brazil, he noted, have to address inflationary pressures in the prices of food, raw materials and notably in labor, circumstances that are difficult to overcome. The governments in both countries are using tools available to them to slow inflation but growth in those countries is likely to slow and spur global inflation. Still, Manchester Capital remains committed to investing selectively in emerging markets.

    Recent problems in the real estate market have produced opportunities for Manchester Capital clients. The firms unique expertise includes purchasing real estate directly for its wealthy clients, sometimes in place of real estate partnerships or real estate investment trusts. Distressed properties are still available at attractive prices and transactions to date have been financially rewarding. Mr. Cronin said clients enjoy owning real estate and get to walk around something they own rather than holding 100 shares of stock. Properly structured, real estate ownership also provides an efficient intergenerational wealth transfer strategy.

    In the commodities markets, Mr. Cronin believes that speculation and hoarding are contributing to escalating prices for copper and gold, among others. While some investors are jumping on hard assets in the belief that they are bound to increase in value, Manchester Capital urges caution and sees prices inflated beyond existing demand and actual need for these commodities.

    At its core, Mr. Cronin observed, Manchester Capital offers its wealthy investors experienced judgment about economic conditions based on history in the market combined with the ability to determine what market conditions mean for different asset classes and where the greatest investment opportunities lie.
