Vanguard economic and market update
20 October 2020 | Markets and Economy
Vanguard's key points:
- Recovery levelling off in Europe, with Germany and Italy expected to fare better than Spain and France.
- Targeted virus-suppression efforts and Brexit uncertainties weighing also on UK economic recovery.
- In the US, we foresee annualised growth of around 22% in the third-quarter and around 7% in the fourth-quarter. It could be another two years at least, though, before US economy recovers to its pre-Covid trajectory.
- China, in contrast, on course to have fully recovered from the Covid-19 pandemic by year’s end.
Note: These points represent the house view of the Investment Strategy Group’s (ISG’s) global economics team and other experts as of 14 October 2020.
