Covid-19 vaccine developments and their impact on the markets

We expect the wide-scale rollout of a vaccine in the first half of 2021 to enable global output and corporate earnings to return to pre-pandemic highs by the end of the year. The post-crisis world will be more indebted, more unequal, and more local—but also more digital, and more sustainable.

As part of his role, Mark oversees the Strategic and Tactical Asset Allocation, Thematic investments, Investment Risk, Quantitative analytics, Derivatives, Alternatives, and with a global span including APAC and US.

The Next Big Thing

We think the next decade will provide a boom for companies using technology to disrupt other sectors. We expect “The Next Big Thing” to materialize within the greentech, fintech, or healthtech spaces, or to be enabled and accelerated by the global rollout of 5G technology.
