July analysis

10 August 2021|

April analysis

7 May 2021|

April passed in review as a positive month for the financial markets. The growth in equity markets was driven by the favourable economic outlook. Better management of the pandemic, with a global trend towards reopening business, will lead to growth in the global economy as a whole. The quarterly results published so far are proof of this, with companies benefiting from a significant increase in turnover and profits. With a strengthening macroeconomic scenario and rising corporate profits, it is likely that the optimistic trend will continue in the coming months. However, as always, when sentiment is generally positive and there [...]
