Allview: Market Risk Monitor

Risk Management

Each month, Allspring’s Investment Analytics team assembles a top 10 list of market risks that it believes have the potential to influence investment portfolios.

Key takeaways

  • The focus of 3 of our top 10 market risks continues to be the rising potential for military conflicts. The countries of concern are Russia, China, and Iran.
  • The potential for direct conflict between Iran and either Israel or the U.S. moved down to #4 for June, as tensions have eased. However, possible conflict between Russia and NATO moved up to #1 based on recent developments and renewed rhetoric from Russia regarding nuclear weapons.
  • The risk of a spike in defaults in postsecondary education bonds also moved up, to #6, as investors now expect defaults to move higher later this year.
