2022 Outlook: Global equities

2022 Outlook: Global equities

We expect global mid-cap equities to generate sustainable and healthy returns, with investors paying more attention to fundamentals versus the momentum-driven recent past. In 2022, we will consider the risks posed by inflation and continue to seek strong industry structures, capable management teams with capital discipline, and clear valuation-driven opportunities.
