Asset Class Return Forecasts: Q3 2018

The current global expansion is set to run until 2020, with above potential growth in most countries in 2018 and 2019. However, the global GDP growth has started to decelerate and we expect it to slow further in 2020.

However, with the output gap progressively closing, global inflation is expected to continue picking up; this is particularly true in the US where the economy is reaccelerating. While in the Eurozone, signs of upside pressure on core inflation are still to be seen.
