Mid-year update on Canada’s economic outlook: Primed for super-charged growth in H2 and through 2022

Topic: Canada is on the verge of a growth spurt as widespread vaccinations permit a full reopening of the economy, pent up demand is released, consumers begin spending their excess savings, and fiscal and monetary stimulus continue in Canada and abroad. All provinces will fully recover by the end of this year, with Western provinces and metros expected to outperform the East after the disruption from the pandemic is overcome. Still, our new North American cities and regions scenario service suggests some downside risks will persist.

Please note that we will be holding one webinar each for Americas, EMEA and APAC friendly timezones:

  • Americas – Wednesday 18th August | 11:00 EDT
  • EMEA – Wednesday 18th August | 10:00 BST
  • APAC – Wednesday 18th August | 10:00 HKT

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.
