Post-correction real estate opportunities on the horizon?

with Abigail Rosenbaum | Online | April 17, 2024

Solid US GDP growth and lower inflation in 2024 will lead the Fed to begin cutting rates mid-year. Rate cuts should stabilize investor confidence and bring the commercial real estate (CRE) pricing correction to an end this year. Once a recovery is underway in 2025, opportunities will start to emerge. In this real estate webinar, using our Relative Return Index (RRI), we highlight risk-adjusted investment opportunities for Global CRE in 2024 and beyond.

Long-haul travel prospects as the sector moves beyond recovery

with Dave Goodger and Helen McDermott | Online | March 27, 2024

2023 marked the recovery of the travel sector to pre-pandemic levels, with complete recovery of international travel anticipated for 2024. However, long-haul travel has lagged wider activity to date. As we move towards peak travel months for many markets we will assess travel demand across major destinations and source markets in this webinar, including changes in short-haul and long-haul flows and the importance of capacity and travel policies. The impact of geopolitical tensions and perceptions of safety will be considered as well as sustainability trends and costs.

Eurozone: On a slow path towards recovery

with Rory Fennessy | Online | March 18, 2024

While the worst may be over for the eurozone economy, the prospect of a quick revival in growth is limited. Activity should pick up stronger in the second half of 2024 as falling inflation supports real incomes and consumer spending, but more restrictive fiscal policy as government priorities shift from providing support to deficit reduction will drag on growth. We expect the ECB to commence with rate cuts in Q2, although growth won’t receive a boost until 2025.

Is city travel recovery a return to pre-pandemic norms?

with Dave Goodger, Kieran Ferran and Emma Laverty | Online | October 3, 2023

City tourism recovery continues and our latest forecast update suggests that 2023 will be the year when many markets will regain 2019 levels in terms of total arrivals (international and domestic) with many more on the cusp of a recovery. But the balance of travel segments has changed, and recovery in some international and long-haul segments will take longer for many cities. We will discuss the latest trends in this session as well as the reasons why recovery to date may differ from prior expectations. Any problems associated with over tourism will also be discussed as we reach previous pre-pandemic peaks.

Industrial outlook remains gloomy for now

with Nico Palesch and Sean Metcalfe | Online | September 14, 2023

High-frequency indicators show that economic activity is weakening through the second half of 2023, and that industry is performing worse than the broader economy. The impact of past policy tightening and the reduced availability of credit is dampening activity and contributing to a deteriorating near-term outlook for investment spending, which is disproportionately impacting manufacturing and other investment-facing sectors of the economy. While supply chains have normalised to a large degree, which is contributing to easing inflation and recovering production in backlog-affected sectors, headwinds to industrial activity are shifting partly from the supply to the demand side. Nonetheless, there are good reasons to expect a relatively shallow downturn in industrial activity as opposed to a total collapse. In this webinar, we will provide a comprehensive update of the global industrial outlook and account for the divergent fortunes across the different sectors that make up the economy.

Why travel will recover this year in the face of economic headwinds

with Dave Goodger and Helen McDermott | Online | June 23, 2023

2023 will mark a return to pre-pandemic levels of global travel activity, despite a slowing global economy. The reasons for this recovery, and expectations for ongoing growth will be explored within this webinar. The travel sector in advanced economies is proving resilient to the current economic headwinds as households are prioritising a return to leisure travel activities, despite the squeeze on incomes. Corporate travel is also returning in sharp contrast to predictions of the demise of this segment. Emerging markets are also resuming an important role in shaping demand now the majority of travel restrictions are lifted and are growing in importance.

Why air travel is set to soar ahead again in 2023

with Dave Goodger | Online | June 20, 2023

Air passenger demand data for early-2023 indicates further significant improvements over 2022’s partial demand recovery. Despite a subdued economic backdrop, forward looking data across May to September show little sign of this recovery taking any reprieve and activity is set to surpass 2019 levels towards the end of the year. The re-opening of the Chinese international travel market is providing some additional reasons for optimism. Tourism Economics and IATA will share latest data, trends and the outlook in this webinar.

Why the cruise sector will rebound faster than after the Great Recession

with Dave Goodger and Christian Savelli | Online | June 8, 2023

The cruise sector was hit following the Great Recession by continued increases in capacity while travel demand slowed sharply - deep discounting was required at that time to spur demand. We are now seeing an apparent parallel trend as new cruise capacity spiked in 2022, despite travel remaining well below pre-pandemic norms in most destinations. In this webinar we describe the amount of additional new capacity that will be launched in coming years as well as demand expectations and why we believe sector recovery and cruise pricing will differ in this current cycle.

Asia’s tug of war as China grows and the US slows

with Arup Raha | Online | June 7, 2023

While the pandemic is effectively over, its aftershocks remain for Asian economies. Balance sheets of households, firms and government will need rebuilding and bottlenecks will need to be eased. Plus, policy space is limited and the extent of the structural dislocations are not fully known. Unlike in the aftermath of the Asian Financial Crisis or the Global Financial Crisis, Asia’s growth recovery is likely to be more difficult. Plus, a spotlight on China. There is a post-Covid growth bounce but is it sustainable? We look at tussle between the cyclical pick up and the structural drag on the economy. What does the medium-term future look like?
