What will the year of the Ox hold for China?

What will the year of the Ox hold for China?

The economy is set to rebound in 2021, leading the global economic recovery once again. 



However, policy-makers will pursue quality over quantity in order to avoid exacerbating existing economic fragilities. This means that Chinese consumers will drive this momentum, which is a meaningful departure from the previous model of investment-led growth. 

Meanwhile, the upcoming 14th Five-Year Plan will also aim to achieve developed-nation per capita income levels before 2025, requiring 8.0% GDP growth this year and around 4.5% to 5.0% thereafter

Better economic activity will support bond yields and currency appreciation, while industrial upgrading and innovation will require further deepening of financial reforms. The latter will be key to facilitate resource allocation and wean Chinese companies off their historical dependency on bank loans.

Hidden gems in Swiss & European small caps

Small and mid caps have traditionally recorded higher growth rates and investment returns over the long term than large caps: it is easier to generate a dynamic growth rate from a smaller base. Swiss and European small and medium-sized capitalisations – so-called ‘SMID caps’ – also tend to provide investors with ‘pure play’ exposure to major secular growth trends.

Investing amidst a tantrum in US Bond Markets

US 10-year Treasury yields have risen 110 bps from their July, 2020 lows and 60 bps alone in 2021. Using previous bond market ‘tantrums’ going back to 2008 as a reference, a rise to as much as 1.7-2.5% may still lie ahead should the turmoil resume.
