leaving room for further 22 construction that would support GDP growth. and selected emerging-market exposure are particularly suited to such a stance. but this indicator speaks of past trends. our call for emerging markets extends to all asset classes. the situation is not as bleak as it was for most of the past two years. In bonds. the major economies are now moving in the right direction. by definition. the European economy is still shrinking and debt is piling up in almost every country. and so we do not side with the trade-war camp. But although growth risks have receded. US mid-caps tend to have a higher sales exposure to the domestic market than do large caps. As we had expected when we upgraded our call on equities to moderate overweight at the start of the year. In currencies. its second-round effect of lower energy prices could add half a point to the GDP growth rate over the coming years. We expect GDP growth to accelerate until it reaches the new trend-growth rate of around 8% in the third quarter of this year. This makes US mid-caps a worthy addition to investor portfolios. their emerging-market peers that had lagged behind last year’s rally now offer catch-up potential. the domestic “energy revolution” not only creates jobs in direct exploration. and debt ceiling have failed to blow the economy out of its growth path. economic improvement in heavyweights such as Brazil and Russia has bolstered our call for emergingmarket equities.

We maintain our preference for the US in our global equity strategy. It is therefore hard to argue that the yen’s recent devaluation has been excessive. but new supply has barely caught up with the formation of new households. Emerging markets: The broader the better After a long and suspenseful wait. Our focus areas of US mid-caps. Europe: Climbing out of the woods At this point. our other market preference next to the US. Chinese value stocks. For now. a selection of mostly European and some US companies with the most competitive exposure to the world’s fastestgrowing regions. In fact.Economic overview Ignore the noise — rewards await investors with a sharp focus By Hartmut Issel. Ireland and Portugal have even returned to the bond market. Europe. others have come to the fore. foremost of which is whether Japan’s spectacular weakening of the yen could trigger trade wars. is certainly in better shape than it was two years ago. we favor a broader emerging-market exposure now that Asian currencies have made significant gains against the US dollar. Unemployment is still very high. especially those that already have a broader US equity exposure. which implies that the continent may emerge from Why wait? An environment of broadly improving economies warrants a modest pro-risk investment stance. giving investors the best of both worlds. Though it cannot be denied that some areas are still in crisis. offer a better long-term growth outlook. This trajectory suggests that investors should focus on stocks that have taken a beating but have only partially recovered – the premise of our China value focus theme. we like USDdenominated corporate bonds which continue to offer decent yield pick-up to benchmark bonds. even more so now that so-called “safe havens” such as developed market sovereign bonds earn meager returns and may lose out even at the slightest increase in interest rates. Amid the growing noise. it has become more important for investors not to lose focus. the political shenanigans around the fiscal cliff. Japan’s major trading partners seem to agree that the answer is no. the yen is still around 15% stronger against the US dollar and 20% against the euro than it was at the onset of the financial crisis. Interest rates in Latin America and Eastern Europe now also offer higher rewards. more important. While Asian currencies still have appreciation potential. it is worth remembering that their central banks historically respond to rising prices by allowing some currency appreciation. The cyclical recovery aided by more-relaxed bank lending also plays a part. China’s long-awaited acceleration has finally arrived. Debt accumulation has slowed and some countries in the periphery have managed to lower their funding costs. budget sequestration. The revival of housing construction has already started in 2012. and investors may wish not to wait until everyone in the market agrees that the coast is clear. These companies combine the pricing power afforded by their strong brands with the growth advantage they get from emerging markets. And with inflation coming back in emerging markets. They also tend to benefit more in a cyclical recovery such as the one we are in now. 23 . Forward-looking indicators are still rather anemic but have reached bottom. And in Asia. We like the US IT sector. economic indicators have pointed to a gradual global recovery. and that the economy may at least stop shrinking towards the end of the year. In the US. A safe play on European investments may thus be in Western “winners’ from emerging markets” growth. US: Housing and energy renaissance In spite of concerns that the US government’s attempts to pare down its sizable budget deficit might dampen the economy. China has found its footing and economic activity has been improving since the end of last year. Yet. but we also advocate the idea of being fully exposed to the country’s robust economic backdrop. while still mired in a crisis.

The banking system of the Euro zone is simply not in a position to provide the credit growth that one would associate with a normal level of economic activity. Domestic demand in Asia Asian growth is likely to remain relatively inward-looking. The slow recovery of the United States is supported by several factors. and a likely bail out of Spain. The global picture is therefore a more benign continuation of the trends we saw in 2012. For financial markets the risk of a Euro break-up has receded significantly and removing that risk premium has allowed risk markets to rally – but by now this process has probably concluded. it is essentially domestic demand that is driving the Asian region. Managing Director. Political noise. 25 . This year offers specific clear political events that are likely to attract investors’ attention. Politicians can blame their economic ills on foreigners (who by definition do not get to vote for them). Politicization of economic matters The lingering damage of the global financial crisis has resulted in an increased politicization of economic matters. it is hard to see growth in the Euro area being anything other than flat this year. Unemployment is rising in many Euro area economies.” However currency movements can create as many economic problems as they solve. This rising politicization adds considerable uncertainty to financial markets – political risk is hard to predict. a very different picture is in evidence. The main incremental positive news is likely to come from exports to non-Euro European countries and to the United States. The United States has yet to post an above-trend growth number in the wake of the crisis. Consumer credit is rising at a normal level. currency down. Incomes for those with a job are rising. and it is weaker. as domestic political considerations may influence Germany’s approach to Euro-wide issues. Slow investment is preventing a complete return to trend growth. it often has unforeseen consequences. This limits the read-through of Asian growth to the rest of the world. The damage wrought by the global financial crisis has not yet been fully repaired. This also accounts for the slow recovery of the labor market. albeit cautiously. Hopefully the noise about currency markets will die down as the year progresses. “Currency up. Unemployment and sluggish growth are never popular with voters. The stabilization of the housing market. and markets are bad at incorporating political risk into asset prices. 24 A lot of noise about currency markets This politicization has also spilled into some hysteria about “currency war. while simultaneously portraying themselves as defenders of the national interest to their own electorate. UBS Investment Bank The world continues to follow a slow recovery path in the wake of the most significant economic downturn in eighty years. Perhaps most importantly. when set against this backdrop.” For a politician. This is significantly reducing the ability of the European Central Bank to influence economic activity (money is printed. Flat growth in Europe In the Euro area. The simplistic idea that weakening a currency will always help an economy is out of date. Although global trade levels will improve somewhat with the slow but steady improvement in US consumer spending. it can give instant gratification: “I promised to weaken the currency. good” is a simple concept. This has kept unemployment higher for longer in most of the developed parts of the world. but the banks will not do anything with it when they get it). and the global economy has managed only the most fleeting of moments when spare capacity was eroded. focusing on currencies is often desirable. although perhaps less extreme than last year. Senior Global Economist. With fiscal austerity enforced either by market discipline or by inter-governmental agreement. preventing expansion. Banks are still reluctant to lend to small and medium-sized businesses (which have no alternative sources of capital). The German elections in September are also a concern for markets.Global economy After the financial crisis: The world in 2013 By Paul Donovan. Weakening a currency does not necessarily benefit exporters (much depends on how exporters price their goods when selling to their customers). The Euro area has to deal with the consequences of a bail out of Cyprus. The Euro zone remains mired in its financial system problems which will keep its growth essentially flat. bad. A slow growth recovery continues for much of the world. creating job insecurity and increasing consumer caution. Slow recovery of the United States The global economy is likely to experience divergence in 2013. Vote for me. The exceptions to this trend are the commodity producers that supply Asia’s domestic demand. In the United States the ongoing debate over fiscal policy is likely to create some concerns. is likely to provide a solid foundation for consumer spending. A weaker currency may raise import costs and damage domestic consumer confidence. will continue to add an element of uncertainty. The banking system is once again prepared to offer credit. In Japan the politicization of monetary policy in particular has become overt (and deeply worrying from an economic perspective). Asian domestic demand is not a major driver of exports from Europe or the United States (as a lot of the goods that are exported to Asia are then re-exported to satisfy domestic demand in other parts of the world).

Rapidly rising incomes in the emerging markets are catapulting around a hundred million people each year out of poverty and into the emerging middle class. Investors based in developed economies also tend to underweight EM due to a general human tendency to invest in what is familiar. EM growth is on an improving trend this year and should benefit EM corporate bonds which are of a relatively cyclical nature. Regional CIO Emerging Markets.1% in 2013 from 3. Furthermore. the flight to safety favors liquid currencies.5% in 2013 from 5.

That said. The second is that many exportoriented emerging countries fear that stronger currencies will compound already weak external demand.

Yet.6x for the world and the US stock markets. EM corporates have registered lower credit default rates over the past five years compared to US corporates. The main reason for this is that emerging markets (EM) have historically been associated with instability and uncertainty regarding economic and political developments. and the Bank of Japan have all announced or expanded quantitative easing programs intended to support asset prices. we are not fundamentally concerned about the outlook for EM corporate debt. In fact. These assets are also underrepresented in most clients’ portfolios. At the same time. they face two short-term headwinds. However. the euro. and the yen.

As a result. while we are positive about the outlook for EM currencies over the medium to long term. While investors should take these short-term considerations into account when structuring their exposure to different EM currencies. As EM corporates have markedly improved their balance sheets in recent years. abundant liquidity from major central banks. Against the backdrop of low interest rates. however.
