Nordics Macro, Industry and Cities Outlook: How will the economy heal from Covid-19?

The Nordic economies outperformed most of Europe across the course of 2020 and are set to recover faster than the wider region, supported by resilient industrial activity whilst services lag. The second wave of infections will drag on near-term activity, but we expect growth to accelerate firmly from Q2 as widespread vaccine deployment allows governments to ease restrictions, paving the way for a normalisation in activity across different sectors of the economy and the Nordic cities.

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

  • APAC – Friday 23rd April | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Friday 23rd April | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Friday 23rd April | 16:00 EDT

However, the Russia-Ukraine conflict and continued lockdowns in China have further exacerbated supply chain constraints and increasing construction costs. In this webinar we will discuss the outlook for construction activity in Asia including the risks and implications of increasing construction costs.

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.
