High Convictions Ideas


  • Central banks seems to be very concerned about the slowdown in the economic cycle sparked by trade tensions. As a consequence, they have been intensifying their communications about their willingness to act.
  • While economic data fill up a mixed bag of signals, we are convinced that the quality of growth will likely lead to further economic weakness. However, we don’t think a recession is likely in the next 12 months.

  •  Central banks are in a difficult position.
