US macro, industries, and regions webinar: Recovery poised to heat up as temperatures rise

A vaccine- and stimulus-fueled economic boom is under way. Spring and summer reopenings will spark the strongest economic performance in nearly 40 years and lift inflation trends higher; the Fed’s patience will be tested. Join us as we explore how the US reopening will play out at the macro, industry, and regional levels in 2021.

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

  • Americas – Wednesday 28th April | 11:00 EDT
  • APAC – Thursday 29th April | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Thursday 29th April | 10:00 BST

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.
