Free Talk: The Tipping Point

The global economy appears to be on the brink of a major transition. Last year was characterized by rising inflation, rate hikes, heightened geopolitical risk, equity index concentration and bond market volatility. Cash became king with many investors deciding to sit on the ‘risk free’ sidelines.

Now, inflation is moderating and rate cuts are expected – although geopolitical risks seem to be even more significant. So, what does the rest of 2024 have in store for bond investors? Are we approaching a ‘tipping point’ at which risk appetite returns and the time for sitting on the sidelines is once again overtaken by the fear of missing out? And if so, where should investors be looking to reallocate their cash?
