Mid-cycle dynamics: Assessing the macro strategy implications

Topic: We discuss the implications of the Jackson Hole symposium, and recent developments for macro strategy themes. We focus on the outlook for developed market rates, bond yields and FX. With tempered volatility, we believe we have now set a floor for this year in various asset markets, including long-term yields and the US Dollar.

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

  • APAC – Monday 20th September | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Monday 20th September | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Monday 20th September | 16:00 EDT

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.
