  3. Core inflation slowed for the fourth month in a row, reflecting easing core goods price pressures.

DIVERGENT GROWTH MOMENTUM

Fixed Income

  1. Despite gloomy projections heading into 2023, another push higher in interest rates, and geopolitical upheaval, the world economy managed to exceed expectations.
  2. Inflation receded considerably from worrisome levels in most economies thanks to a combination of lower energy prices, base effects from year-over-year comparisons, and slower demand for goods and services.
  3. This has allowed most major central banks, including the Federal Reserve, to shift to a more balanced stance on the trade-offs between the path of interest rates, inflation, and growth.

CREDIT CONDITIONS CHALLEGING

Fixed Income

  1. Higher rates and a reduced willingness of banks to extend loans suggest to us that credit conditions for households and businesses are likely to remain challenging in the near term.
  2. Restrictive borrowing costs and tougher access to credit tend to act as drags on economic activity.
  3. After consistent positive revisions this year, the current consensus projections are for global and U.S. real GDP growth to moderate to 2.7 percent and 1.2 percent in 2024, on a year-over-year basis, respectively, from 2.9 percent and 2.4 percent this year.

WHAT’S BEHIND 2023? FIXED INCOME & EQUITIES

Fixed Income

  1. The story for much of 2023 has been a macro environment that has generally surprised in a constructive way.
  2. Sustained economic growth and central banks that are now less motivated to hike again provided a more supportive environment for equity markets to scale the proverbial “wall of worry.”
  3. Consensus estimates are currently projecting low double digit profit growth for major equity indexes in 2024.
