Top Down: Stronger Growth Data Helps to Dampen Recession Fears

16 February 2023

Every month, our Asset Allocation Committee meets to discuss and debate our market outlook. How has our asset allocation changed month-on-month? Here Bernard Swords, Chief Investment Officer, presents our views.

As we move further into 2023, things are not as bad as we thought they would be. 

In the US, there has been a reassuring deceleration in inflation and good employment numbers, suggesting stronger growth than expected. The eurozone has weathered the winter and energy prices well.

Overall figures suggest that the once feared global slowdown is less likely to appear, however growth is still proving hard to find.

How do these factors impact our market outlook? And how has our asset allocation changed?

To explore our views, read our latest edition of  Top Down.
