Executive view of the quarter
Fundamental developments since the January meeting have been almost exclusively positive: a calmer tone to the US Presidency, the passage of a supplementary major stimulus package, solid global economic data and, most importantly, increasing evidence that medical science is in the process of defeating Covid-19 as an economic threat. The global economic growth outlook is therefore extremely positive in our 18-month investment time horizon, with a cycle peak likely to be substantially beyond that.
Unlike in previous cycles, commodity producers have been disciplined in the face of higher commodity prices and have not ramped up expansionary capex.
