In this video Johanna Kyrklund, Chief Investment Officer at Schroder Investment Management, compares recent market and banking turbulence with previous periods of uncertainty, such as the Global Financial Crisis and bursting of the dotcom bubble. She highlights how rising interest rates can spell trouble for economies and markets, by exposing investor speculation. And she points out that this can lead to lower market valuations and slower economic activity overall. Johanna also points out that her multi-asset team currently favours government bonds and higher quality corporate bonds, as they expect the US economy to slow and move into recession later this year. And she adds that her team remains cautious on equities, even though share valuations have fallen.
