Nordics’ economic outlook is bright, but near-term downside risks are rising

Topic: The Nordic recovery is on track despite some surprises in the Q2 GDP components and rising near-term downside risks. Goods exports have been weak, reflecting persistent strains in supply chains and input shortages affecting the region’s trade-sensitive economies. Growth in industry is likely to moderate and be subject to temporary setbacks, but the long-term outlook remains solid as the backlog of orders is eliminated and inventories are replenished. Surging domestic demand driven by eager-to-spend consumers alongside a superior virus containment strategy and high vaccination rates support an overall robust regional outlook.

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.
