2022 Global Market Outlook

Playbook for a Shifting Economic Landscape

The global recovery appears on track, but policymakers may be challenged to slow inflation without stifling growth in 2022.

Key Themes


Growth Delayed, Not Derailed


The global economic recovery appears on track, but policymakers may be challenged to restrain inflation without stifling growth.


Focus on Fundamentals


Equity valuations are vulnerable to rising interest rates. Slower U.S. earnings growth could favor less expensive, more cyclical ex‑U.S. markets.


Navigating Policy Shifts


Risk of central bank missteps could keep bond markets volatile in 2022. With U.S. credit spreads tight, investors may want to cast wider global nets.


Path to Global Sustainability


Investment in global supply chains, public infrastructure, and renewable energy development could benefit capital goods and related industries.
