Mosaique Insights: Issue 09


One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of the winter.”

Henry David Thoreau

So far, 2022 has not been what investors would deem a smooth ride: persistent inflation concerns on one side and a rapidly shrinking liquidity environment on the other – a challenging environment for markets. One would wish to live in more serene times. However, this is the (investment) world we live in.

Remembering the wise words attributed to the philosopher Henry David Thoreau, it is all the more important to remain positive, even in the face of many uncertainties. It is in times like these that our strength as wealth managers is put squarely to the test. With our heritage firmly rooted in the multi-generational preservation of wealth, we wanted to share with you in this edition of Mosaique Insights how we’ve navigated these past months with articles from our portfolio managers, investment and client advisers.

We also use this opportunity to take a closer look at what type of investments can thrive in challenging times, take you on a trip to the Nordics and introduce to you our new Rothschild & Co Switzerland art collection. No edition would be complete without our latest views from our advisory team which sheds light on the potential of the healthcare sector.

We hope you enjoy this edition of Mosaique Insights, wish you a happy summer, un bon été, einen schönen Sommer and look forward to seeing you in autumn!
