Annual Market Outlook 2020
Whilst geopolitics in 2019 was a key influencing theme on investor sentiment, markets could now refocus on economic fundamentals. Citi analysts expect 2020 global GDP growth at 2.7% paired with inflation of 2.7%. Developed Markets may see a slowdown to below-trend growth of 1.5%, while Emerging Markets in contrast could see a moderate rebound to 4.2%.
