Can economies balance growth and inflation?

Read about global markets and trends in this monthly Investment Outlook.

Published on 07 Mar 20241 minute read

This monthly commentary gives a roundup of global markets and trends. 

In this edition:

  • We consider how growth has been supported by healthy labour market and how the global economy defied pessimistic expectations
  • A key risk for financial markets is that growth rekindles inflationary pressure
  • Economic environment remains supportive for company earnings, and particularly for large cap stocks to drive the overall market
  • However, the Magnificent Seven’s endurance comes into question as only four of them are now outperforming the S&P 500 in 2024
