The Tilney Investment Outlook - May 2022

Slowing growth versus rising rates?

Published: 06 May 2022 Updated: 13 Jun 2022

This monthly commentary gives a roundup of global markets and trends.

In this edition:

  • Global growth is slowing as the Ukraine crisis weighs on energy markets and China locks down to prevent the spread of the latest Covid strain
  • A buoyant labour market provides some hope for stock market investors, with jobless rates in the UK, Eurozone and US below pre-pandemic lows
  • Central banks remain committed to raising interest rates in the short term, but there are signs that US inflation is peaking
  • Any slowdown in inflation could temper the need for the Federal Reserve to raise rates aggressively
