Eurozone economy ready to take off
After a long period of restrictions which sent the eurozone economy into a double-dip recession, the outlook is finally brightening and activity looks ready to take off. An improved medical situation and the acceleration in the vaccination process will allow European economies to reopen, leading to a strong period of growth for the remainder of the year. As the economy recovers, inflation concerns are gradually replacing growth concerns, but we still expect eurozone inflation to remain moderate beyond the temporary rise in prices seen this year.

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.Find Out More
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.Find Out More
