2020 will be remembered as a period of tremendous disruption and change. A worldwide pandemic and contentious US presidential election contributed to volatility that affected economic growth and global markets. As we look forward to 2021, we are positive about continued economic recovery, although the markets still face the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19. We believe declining rates of infection and progress toward development and distribution of a vaccine will determine the pace of US economic recovery and, in turn, spur economic growth in 2021.

Amid the ongoing global economic recovery, investors may need to use a broader toolkit – beyond the regions that have recently done well. Equities in Europe and emerging Asia may offer better value than the US winners of 2020, while a continued low-yield environment could create attractive opportunities in Asian debt and corporate bonds globally.
