​A Survey of Probabilities


The ASR Quarterly Asset Allocation Survey is in its seventh year, and helps leading global investors understand the consensus and distribution of current views in the market.


It’s unique in its ability to forecast the likelihood of certain financial events by mapping implied probabilities to the frequency of these events over the past decade.

215 participants, with USD $3.8 trillion of assets under management

The Q2 Asset Allocation Report


The fieldwork for the ASR Q2 Asset Allocation Survey was conducted from 27th May until 10th June 2021, with 215 participants overseeing USD $3.8 trillion of assets under management. 


The Survey reveals that ASR’s Composite Optimism Indicator pulls back (64%) from the previous quarter (70%).

Key Takeaways

  • This quarter’s survey shows positive signs and stability.

  • Investors anticipate tightening of global monetary conditions but remain bullish of Equities, Value, Cyclicals, Credit, and bearish Bonds.

  • In contrast to our Q1 survey (March), it shows higher US unemployment expectations alongside further upside for corporate earnings and positive risk assets. 

  • The probability that stocks will overtake bonds in the next 12 months is at one of the highest levels in the survey’s history.
