Will the pandemic ever end? Vaccines have done a great job reducing the risk of severe cases, but the new infection wave suggests they are not circuit-breakers – as the WHO itself starts to admit.
Market Perspectives

Highlights:

  • We favour a very prudent tactical stance amid high near-term uncertainty. But with the earnings consensus looking reasonable and valuations supported by rockbottom real yields, the recent correction may ultimately render opportunities for reloading risk assets as Omicron fears recede.
