Construction inputs in short supply

Increasing demand and constrained supply of construction inputs has raised questions around industry capacity to deliver a strong pipeline of construction work. The slow untangling of Covid-19 restrictions and supply chain bottlenecks point to significant pressure on key inputs being sustained for some time. In this webinar we will discuss the risks and implications of these capacity constraints on our construction forecasts.

Talking points:

  • What is driving the increase in construction costs?
  • How long will industry be weighed down by capacity constraints?
  • What sectors will be most affected?

Frontier market turmoil: Argentina’s value, Sri Lanka’s crisis, Egyptian FX worries

Frontier markets will continue to be volatile in the near term, but bond valuations are attractive with plenty of arbitrage opportunities. We see value in Argentine bonds, as the country should benefit from higher commodity prices and liquidity risks are contained; we focus on the light at the end of Sri Lanka’s tunnel, with markets failing to price in the possibility of a successful IMF program; and also our concerns that further depreciation may be consistent with Egyptian stabilisation efforts.
