The Golden Lining: How To Profit During An Economic Collapse

These are terrible times, and it is not our intention be insensitive to those suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic that is sweeping across our planet. In fact, we ourselves are based in Europe, in the new epicentre of the pandemic. Europe is now largely on lockdown, imposing significant limitations to our daily routines and the ability to continue our business efficiently. Of course, this pales in comparison to those whose loved ones have contracted the dreaded virus, and our thoughts are with them.In addition to the health dangers, the Corona pandemic threatens the survival of the global economy, affecting every facet of business, from major airlines to self employed individuals. This article is not meant to offend anyone, nor belittle the global crisis that we are suffering. But, as always, with great economic shifts come opportunities. This is an article that we hope might encourage or help some people who are suffering the economic effects of this crisis, and maybe inspire some hope; in the form of a “golden lining”.A Financial CrisisThere is little doubt that the effects of COVID-19 have already thrown us into a global economic crisis. Oil prices are down as airlines ground entire fleets, restaurants and small businesses are forced to close, and millions of people find themselves unemployed. Governments scramble to save both their medical system and their economic structure from total collapse.So far, China has injected US$78 billion into its banking system, the Bank of Japan doubled the amount of money invested into the Tokyo stock market, the United States have reduced the federal funds rate to near zero and the German government has pledged unlimited funds to businesses hit by the Corona virus. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, COVID-19 is estimated to cost the global economy between $1 trillion and $2 trillion in 2020. The International Labour Organization has calculated that Covid-19 may destroy up to 25 million jobs*.The Fear Factor ErrorWhen disaster strikes, stock markets plummet with a knock-on effect that punishes the entire financial ecosystem. Many investors panic as assets prices fall and they try to offload their portfolios before they become worthless. This is a largely emotionally driven decision, and is often the worst thing that an investor can do. Historically, as soon as the dust settles, market confidence is restored and prices bounce back to where they were, or higher.A study by Ned Davis Research Group analysed 28 global crises over the past hundred years, from World War II to 9/11. Each time, financial markets overreacted and crashed, only to recover shortly afterwards. Those investors who panicked and dumped their stock, found themselves having to buy back their portfolios at higher prices as soon as the market recovered.**Stay Calm and Keep On InvestingInvestors who are able to keep a cool head, however, recognise falling prices as a buying opportunity; acquiring assets from panicked sellers is much like purchasing goods in a sale. Often, the fear factor drives asset prices well below their fundamental values.Assuming that investors have the liquidity and patience to purchase these assets and wait for them to recover, there is a massive profit potential.How To Identify the Golden GeeseEach crisis is different. In the credit crisis of 2008, based largely on over-lending, real estate prices and bank stocks plummeted. This crisis is very different, with industry giants finding themselves without clients, or staff, and many small to medium businesses unable to survive the social distancing that has been implemented by so many countries. Thanks to the panic, some very well established stocks that have been paying dividends for years (as well as survived many a crisis!) are undervalued as the stock market is hit as a whole. Arguably, now would be the perfect time to snap them up at bargain prices.On the flip side, MedTech companies are being heavily invested in to deal with the COVID-19 medical crisis and telecoms companies are thriving as the world’s population turns to digital communication forced through physical social distancing. Smart investors will be able to spot an opportunity emerging from this highly unusual situation.Bricks and MortarEconomic crises often result in a reduction in real estate prices as well as interest rates. Many investors with the appropriate means were able to snap up real estate gems in the 2008/09 crash and it would appear that a similar opportunity may present itself again. With human movement limited, panicked property owners looking to liquidate assets, and a rental market that will inevitably suffer, it his highly likely that property values will be affected. Although resale prices may take a long time to recover, real estate is historically one of the best asset classes for the storage of wealth in the long term.Refinance DebtInterest rates are nearing historic lows, making it an opportune moment to refinance existing property portfolios. Of course, the application of the reduced rates are particular to jurisdiction and area of residence, type of property etc., but it is worth assessing a portfolio’s eligibility to see if some significant benefits can be achieved.Know The RisksLike every investment scenario, one should never invest what one is not prepared to lose. If we had asked a restaurant mogul with 100 outlets and 5,000 strong staff, 2 months ago, if he or she would ever imagine a scenario in which their empire could realistically be reduced to rubble in a matter of weeks, the answer would almost certainly be “no”, and yet we are seeing this exact, completely unexpected, scenario. These situations are enormously uncertain and anything could happen.According to Investopedia, “Investing in a crisis is no doubt risky, for the timeline and scope of a recovery is uncertain at best. Double-dip recessions are a real possibility, and attempting to pick a bottom is largely a matter of luck. Still, those investors who are able to invest in a crisis without succumbing to irrational fear and anxiety may reap outsized returns during a recovery.”* https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/economy/finance/covid-19-crisis-how-the-deadly-virus-hints-at-a-looming-financial-crisis/articleshow/74752200.cms?utm_source=contentofinterest&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=cppst**https://research2.fidelity.com/fidelity/research/reports/release2/Research/NedDavisResearch.aspThe Golden Lining: How To Profit During An Economic Collapse was originally published in MaxPropertyGroup on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
