Eurozone: A rebound in the second half of the year is still on the cards

The eurozone has been heavily affected by the pandemic crisis and the economic recovery remains highly linked to the health situation. We still expect a strong rebound in the second half of this year, with lockdown restrictions being gradually eased and activity picking up pace across all the sectors of the economy. Tourism activity will also resume in 2021, but remaining below pre-pandemic levels. However, the magnitude of the rebound will depend on the success of the vaccine campaigns across the bloc; ongoing obstacles to vaccine production and distribution represent major downside risks for the recovery at this time. On the other side, a potential strong rebound in private consumption could improve the boost later this year and in 2022.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between the Americas, APAC and EMEA:

  • EMEA – Wednesday 21st April | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Wednesday 21st April | 16:00 EDT
  • APAC – Thursday 22nd April | 10:00 HKT

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.

Latin America’s winners and losers from the war in Ukraine

As a relevant commodity exporter, Latin America stands to benefit from the generalized increase in prices for raw materials. But the gains will not be uniform across all countries or across all sector of the economy, as the renewed rise in inflation will squeeze consumers' incomes and savings.
