Softening in global economic momentum continues
Monday, 21 August 2017
Our view of a slight softening in global economic momentum in the second half of the year remains unchanged, alongside our expectation of moderately rising inflation trends over coming months. Central banks are likely to continue on (or begin) their journey of normalising monetary policy, which we believe is a scenario that financial markets are not yet fully pricing. Risk appetite remains reasonably buoyant and market volatility very low, albeit there has been a moderate increase more recently on geopolitical concerns. We are mindful that the current benign fundamental backdrop of moderate growth, low interest rates and low inflation is leading to a certain amount of complacency in markets. Our concern is that any deterioration in the growth/inflation story could prompt profit-taking and challenge this more sanguine view of the world. We continue to believe that monetary policy remains a key trigger for caution, notwithstanding that central banks have stepped back from their hawkish signals provided in recent weeks. In our view, the risk/reward dynamic of risk assets is not as favourable compared with the start of the year and we believe it is appropriate to stay with our risk reduction plan. This will be focused on UK property, given potential liquidity issues in the event of any sell-off. Overall, we are taking a measured approach in reducing risk and maintaining flexibility to re-calibrate portfolios in either direction should economic and market conditions change.
