Market Compass April 2023

In Kürze

A team of analysts based in Paris, Cologne, Trieste, Milan and Prague runs qualitative and quantitative analysis on macroeconomic and financial issues. The team translates macro and quant views into investment ideas that feed into the investment process.


  • Despite gains in economic confidence and inflation stickiness in Q1 2023, bouts of banking stress have led the market to reprice the Fed path lower: a friendly combination for markets.

  • Known unknowns include the US debt ceiling negotiation, the so-far dormant EU bank-sovereign nexus, and US-China tensions.
  • That said, 2023 is not 2008: rated-induced (unrealised) losses are less toxic than bad loans, policymakers have learnt the GFC lesson. Still, given the weak and risky growth prospects we prefer Cash, IG Credit and Core Govies to Equities, High Yield and Pheripheral Bonds.
