The first quarter of 2021 saw the global reflation vs. inflation story develop. February brought with it a record number of flows into equity funds and as we move through March, our research team continues to compile EPFR-tracked fund flows and allocations data to ascertain whether global reflation will trigger higher-than-expected inflation.
During our webinar, our panel of experts recap the data analysis of Q1 2021, and conclude with insight into our most recent ‘volatility’ indicator – which assesses the speed of rotation across – asset classes, countries, sectors, FX currencies, long and short bond duration and, SRI/ESG. – suggesting that volatility is indeed picking up. They also offer their thoughts on the market rebound vs. recovery conundrum– which we believe will gain momentum over the next few months.
