An Injection of Hope 2021

30th January 2021

The Global CIO Office Global Outlook 2021 features comments from our team on the prospects for all the major asset classes including private assets.  In summary:

 

  • We believe 2021 will start on a positive for most asset classes given the tremendous support from policymakers in most economies

  • We note that inflation looks to be a distant threat in the longer term, but could be alive and well in the immediate short-term

  • We remain convinced that Asia is a destination for long-term, strategic investors and those who want to have immediate exposure to a region that has strong growth prospects and will drive technological innovation

  • Private assets now challenge conventional markets for investor attention and in our view are a key area for investor investment

The fear of fear

 26th July 2021

Emerging and highly contagious variants of COVID-19 have worried politicians around the world, resulting in various new lockdowns measures and retractions of previous freedom.

The Fed's transitory indifference?

 19th July 2021

Conventional wisdom six months ago was that higher inflation would prove transitory. Economists had then forecast that US inflation would peak around April/May. After another stormy set of inflation data from the US last week, inflation appears to have still not peaked, and there is less support for the view that it will prove transitory....

Buy the inflation dips

 12th July 2021

This past week saw more evidence of market skittishness in the face of even minor challenges to the growth narrative. We think market pricing still does not fully reflect the risk of inflation in the medium term, despite what the Fed states....

More of the same - unfortunately

 5th July 2021

Global macro data continues to show solid growth and persistent inflation, which is sufficient to boost equities but indicates a pending sell-off in bonds. Global warming also remains persistent, with declining hopes for an early and acceptable solution to the problem....

Much fuss about dots

 21st June 2021

If market impact is the measure to go by, this past week’s Federal Reserve policy meeting was a significant one indeed. With some shifts in the dots of the “dot plot” and subsequent comments from Chairman Powell and FOMC member Bullard, the markets went into a frenzy....
