Investment Outlook 2023: Some Light for Investors After the Storm
December 2022 | We predict that 2023 will be a two-speed year, with plenty of risks to watch out for. Bonds are back, market valuations are getting more attractive, and a Fed pivot in the first part of the year could trigger interesting entry points. We expect global growth to slow significantly, with several countries across both developed markets and EM suffering stagnation, while others may face a slowdown at best.
01 | Developed market central banks have hiked rates aggressively in 2022 to tame inflation pressures, but they are unlikely to keep this pace going in 2023.
02 | The energy crisis will be the main economic driver in Europe, which we believe will fall into recession.
03 | The level of the Federal Reserve’s terminal interest rate will be critical; if close to 6%, a US recession will be in the cards and could be more severe than what is expected today.
