Capital Group Mid-Year Outlook

The first half of 2021 experienced strong gains for equity investors, as US markets (as measured by the S&P 500) were up 14.4% and International markets (as measured by the MSCI ACWI ex USA Index (USD)) were up 9.2%. Many investors are asking questions like “How is the market hitting all-time highs while there is still so much uncertainty?”, or “Will inflation erode my quality of life in retirement?”

While we often hear negative and unsettling headlines from the media, there are many exciting investment opportunities on the horizon. The PDF below explores topics like inflation, Fed rate hikes, consumer spending, the digitization of the economy, electric vehicle adoption, global semiconductor sales, and the historical resilience of fixed income.
