Torbjorn Tornqvist, chief executive officer of oil trader Gunvor Group, said he would continue to invest in stocks in 2014, targeting underperforming sectors, such as natural resources.

“The oil and mining sectors have been very weak,’’ he said. “I prefer to invest when market expectations are low, because when these opportunities turn, they turn quickly.’’

“China is the big question,’’ he said. “Will it perform as expected? Growth rates could be lower than generally anticipated due to credit and debt issues, which could have wider consequences for the Asia region.’’
