Markets at risk of «complacency»

The first half of 2024 has seen unrelenting economic and political uncertainty, but little of that has been reflected in the markets. Bhavin Shah, fund manager at Newton Investment Management says that markets run the risk of «complacency» and tells us why he is cautious on valuations.

In this episode, he discusses what he sees as the top risks and what trading desks should be paying attention to this week and for the rest of the year. He delves into the growing debt deficits, potential election volatility, and whether we’re seeing over-concentration in the US tech sector.

The fund manager also unpacks his outlook on rate cuts this year and how his team are positioning their portfolios.
