Comment: Improvement in financial conditions can continue
Monday, 20 March 2017
The global economy is presenting a positive picture with both developed and emerging markets contributing to growth. The improvement in global conditions has coincided with rising financial market confidence. We appear to be in a steady state of equity markets grinding higher, gently rising bond yields and low volatility. Recognising that we are in an unusually extended market cycle, with markets now eight years on from their Global Financial Crisis lows, we believe that the improvement in financial conditions can continue in the near term, driven by excess liquidity, still dovish central banks and an improving global backdrop, with inflation not expected to run into the danger zone. That said, we acknowledge that valuations across developed market equity indices are looking more expensive and credit spreads are at historic lows (the yield difference versus the equivalent maturity sovereign bond). We are therefore comfortable with the current moderate risk overweight, but have little inclination to add further to risk levels.
