 Vanguard economic and market update

Vanguard's key points:

  • Investor confidence has been boosted in November by news that two Covid-19 vaccine candidates have shown promise, but immense economic challenges still remain.
  • Vanguard expects the UK and euro-area economies to contract in the fourth quarter as tighter restrictions are imposed to tackle the second wave of the virus.
  • China, by contrast, remains on course to be the world’s only major economy to reach pre-pandemic trend levels of growth by the end of the year.
  • Vanguard sees a trade agreement between 15 Asia-Pacific nations as a step towards deepening regional economic integration.
