Global markets continue to be under pressure as Covid- 19, as the coronavirus is described, spreads outside of China. There are three factors at play here, which are interacting to create great uncertainty.
The Chancellor Rishi Sunak yesterday unveiled £330bn of government-backed loans for businesses equivalent to 15% of the UK’S annual GDP as well as £20bn in direct cash support. This came less than a week after an initial £7bn package announced in the Budget. These measures are being mirrored across the globe as countries around the world pull together in an effort to calm international markets and help individuals and their families.
On the back of extraordinary moves in markets over the past few weeks, we have seen several clients get in touch to discuss their investments. Our Q&A below aims to cover some of the key points clients are concerned about, and offer our thoughts on the outlook going forward.
Fears over the coronavirus have gripped markets in recent weeks, with the second week of March delivering a series of almost unprecedented headlines. A fall of over 10% in one day for the FTSE 100 (its worst since 1987), similar drops across European stock markets, and the fastest ever move into bear market territory by US stocks were just some of the news stories from the week, despite a wide array of measures announced by central banks.
Investment Manager Jonathan Raymond, on whether clients should move to cash in current market conditions.
Head of Fixed Interest Research, Richard Carter, on what can be expected of Central Banks following the coronavirus outbreak.
Head of Equity Research, Chris Beckett, on how equity research analysts are monitoring the current market sell-off. and what they look for in a company.
Global stock markets reached new all-time highs in early February before suffering a sharp and broad based sell-off as it became clear that Covid-19 had not been contained within China and would likely reach most countries to varying degrees. The economic impact – mainly the result of public health countermeasures rather than sickness or death – is unknown in magnitude or duration as there are no precedents in the current globalised supply chain world. The virus is expected to peak within the next month or so, though this is a quickly evolving situation.
In the first Diary for a few weeks, a quick look back at the damage done by the globalisation of the coronavirus, before moving on to the future. And a thank you.
