Reflation should allow equities to outshine bonds

Reflation has emerged as a key topic of discussion in the financial markets. Past experience of reflationary phases shows that – in the great majority of cases – although market volatility rises, equities deliver a clearly superior overall return in the medium term compared to bonds. This is a common phenomenon in situations where inflation rises from a low level and is accompanied by strong economic growth that boosts corporate earnings. Given this scenario, it would come as no surprise if impressive medium-term global value stocks with relatively cheap valuations in a historical comparison were to perform impressively.

We have identified “7 corona trends” that are increasingly affecting our economic environment and seem unlikely to disappear even after a return to “normality”.
