Market Compass June 2024

In Short

A team of 13 analysts based in Paris, Cologne, Trieste, Milan and Prague runs qualitative and quantitative analysis on macroeconomic and financial issues. The team translates macro and quant views into investment ideas that feed into the investment process.



  • We expect the combination of a mild global recovery and a continued disinflation trend to persist into the summer. The ECB is set to deliver its first rate cut in June, with the Fed likely to follow in September.
  • This backdrop tilts the outlook for core yields mildly to the downside. Solid earnings and the outlook of lower rates may keep risk sentiment underpinned.
  • That said, an advanced equity rally, depressed volatility and elevated investor positioning in risk assets reflect a very high degree of market optimism that keeps the risk of temporary setbacks high.
  • We maintain a neutral stance on Equities and High Yield (HY) Credit and concentrate our tactical overweights in the safer buckets of risk assets, including Investment Grade (IG) Credit and Southern European debt, at the expense of Cash and short-dated core bonds. We keep a moderate long duration stance across Fixed Income classes.
