Mid-Year Outlook 2022

13 June 2022

Welcome to our “Mid-Year Outlook”, the investment strategy update on prospects for global markets from Barclays Private Bank, which is also available to download as a PDF at the bottom of this page.

As the US central bank hikes rates to counter soaring inflation and the global growth outlook weakens, many financial markets are feeling battered this year. This month’s report shines a light on whether markets and economies might perform any better over the rest of the year, or could there be worse still to come?

In addition to providing insight and context behind the major trends at play, as well as our usual asset class and financial market analysis, you’ll find our sustainability article, where we we ask if the energy crisis could actually be reinforcing Europe’s fossil fuel addiction along with which renewables offer attractive investment opportunities. Without doubt these are extraordinary times, but the long-term case for investing remains solid.

As always, we hope you enjoy the articles and we thank you for entrusting us with your investments.

Jean-Damien Marie and Andre Portelli,
Co-Heads of Investment, Private Bank
