  • Just as the US/China trade truce provided broad-based relief, the new Coronavirus in China is unsettling global financial markets.

  • The fast-spreading disease is challenging the global macro rebound, but we still see resilience in the US and Euro area domestic demand.

  • Experience from past episodes suggests that markets tend to overshoot, but rebound once the number of new infections starts to slow.

  • We favour a more cautious stance near term. We maintain a moderate pro-risk tilt in the portfolios, but reduce our exposure to Equities and HighYield (HY) Credit. We keep our overweight in higher rated corporates andan underweight in government core bonds.
