    In 2019, global economic growth looks to have fallen to a post-financial crisis low due to slow-downs in the US, Europe, and China. Yet although trade growth weakened as the US-China trade conflict impacted business confidence and fixed investment, the labor market and consumption remained relatively healthy. This resilience, combined with looser monetary policy, contributed to strong performance in financial markets.

    Fears of the spread of a pneumonia virus caused risk markets to wobble yesterday. Asian trading has been more stable overnight. Comparisons to the SARS virus seventeen years ago suggest that this could be a market focus until March.  Economically the focus will be on travel and consumer spending. Compared to seventeen years ago, online spending is more significant. That reduces the economic impact of the virus. However, most economic damage from a virus comes from fear. Social media is far more widespread today. We know that social media spreads fake news farther and faster than it spreads the truth.  South Korea had stronger-than-expected GDP for the fourth quarter. Some of this was due to government spending, which is of limited relevance to the rest of the world. Some was due to investment by tech companies, which might reflect supply chain adjustment after US trade taxes against China.  US President Trump went near to a mountain to prophesy great...

    A Decade of Transformation now beckons.

    From game-changing technologies to the forward-thinking companies driving the transition to a more sustainable economy, opportunities will abound to invest in the ideas that shape the future. These present myriad options for investment in areas such as 5G, artificial intelligence, genetic therapies, and sustainable investing.

    Yet, the coming decade will also become more challenging for investors and business owners. Workforces will begin to shrink in the developed world, de-globalization is expected to gain momentum, and major environmental changes will create seismic shifts in consumer and government choices.

    2020 will be pivotal. Key issues remain in the year ahead and the path forward is increasingly dominated by political choices.

    The evolution of the US-China trade dispute, use of fiscal and monetary policy, and the result of the US presidential election will be crucial for shaping economic...

    A trio of recent deals tells us something important about capital markets: that 2020 may be the year when climate-risk analysis of portfolios moves out of a specialised niche into the mainstream. Investors and boards have begun to realise that it can be more costly to ignore these issues, than to try to grapple with them.

    Last September MSCI, the global index company, bought Climate Delta, a boutique focusing on climate risk analysis. A few months earlier Moody’s acquired Four Twenty Seven, a similar boutique. 2019 ended with S&P making a move for sustainable index player RobecoSAM.

    Several factors are driving the trend.

    First, a flurry of central banks are introducing climate stress tests for banks and insurers, following the lead of Mark Carney, Bank of England governor. The insights these tests provide could be used by boards and investors to change practices in asset allocation and risk management.
