Global growth is set to continue improving through 2021 as financial conditions remain exceptionally loose. However, the recovery is likely to become less synchronized given early signs of a divergence in monetary and fiscal policy approaches globally. The US is set to outperform other economies in the cyclical rebound, supported by sizeable fiscal stimulus in 2021. And as the world grapples with lower interest rates and slower economic growth, investors are faced with the prospect of muted returns from investing in traditional asset classes like equities and bonds.
Given the massive amounts of monetary and fiscal stimulus, investors may find interesting opportunities in different asset classes, emphasizing the need for active management in the hunt for income. Investors may also consider opportunities in non-traditional asset classes such as REITs for alternative sources of income.
Join our fund experts from Allianz Global Investors and Manulife Investment Management as they share the need for active management in the hunt for income as well as why REITs are typically viewed as a good income-generating investment vehicle due to its ability to produce potentially stable and predictable cash flows, even in uncertain times.
