Investment & Client Solutions Strategist

Central banks: from doves to hawks?

27.07.2017 - Raphaël Gallardo

Read market analysis by Raphaël Gallardo, Multi-asset strategist at Investment and Client Solutions investment division:

- Strong and synchronized global growth, with still no marked acceleration in inflation.
- Tension on long-term rates following tightening rhetoric from several G10 central banks.
- Trump’s reflationary agenda still bogged down in Congress.
- The Fed is forced to toughen its tone to safeguard its credibility against an overheating equity market and a fixed-income market that flies in the face of its macroeconomic scenario. The elimination of the Fed put is set to have major consequences for risky asset valuations.
- Ahead of the traditional summer slowdown in market liquidity, we continue to gradually cut back risk in our portfolios, exiting European high yield credit and local currency emerging market debt.
- We still underweight US equities.
