Asset Management Executive Roundtable – Autumn 2021

Oxford Economics is pleased to formally invite you to our flagship, annual Asset Management Executive Roundtable – Autumn 2021. This event will be held on September 29th at 10:00 AM EDT/14:00 GMT as well as September 30th at 10:00 HKT (12:00 AEST).

This year’s event will be via webinar, but with a limited audience, to ensure that we have an interactive discussion. The event will be led by several Senior Economists from Oxford Economics and will cover a range of topics, including:

  • Is this set to be the most volatile and uneven global recovery in recent history?
  • What could knock advanced economies out of the low inflation/rates equilibrium?
  • Is Fed tapering a non-event?
  • What are the market implications of moving to mid-cycle?
  • How worried should we be about US-China de-coupling?

Our panel of senior economists and strategists, from around the world, will include the following:

Is sterling in the midst of a sell-off or a full-blown crisis?

Policy announcements are coming thick and fast in the UK at the moment and have been greeted with the most significant sell-off in UK assets in decades. Is this a case of markets overreacting or have the UK public finances been put on an unsustainable footing? Will the Bank of England react to the fall in sterling or are markets setting themselves up to be disappointed? We will set out our views on all these topics and set out the conditions under which we think this volatility will subside.

Pre-emptive debt restructuring: a viable scenario for fragile African sovereigns?

The expiry of Covid-19-related support coupled with a surge in the goods import bill has exacerbated pressure on external trade positions for various African sovereigns. We see headwinds intensifying from 2023 onwards in the form of a deepening drought in East Africa, populist-leaning policies aimed at appeasing voter frustrations, large redemptions of external public debt facilities, and moral hazard. The risk profile is fragmented but a common thread can be found across Africa: sovereigns face an uphill battle in meeting the projected external funding requirements. With the risks of disorderly default on the rise and informed by the Zambian blueprint, we investigate the case for pre-emptive debt restructuring for fiscally fragile nations including Egypt, Ghana, and Kenya.
