Vantage Point: The inflation question

Welcome to another edition of Vantage Point, the quarterly economic and market outlook from the Global Economics and Investment Analysis team at BNY Mellon Investment Management. In our previous edition, we argued the outlook for 2021 depended on whether the ‘bad news’ about new virus strains or the ‘good news’ about vaccines dominated this year. So far, the ‘good news’ appears to be winning and our focus has shifted to the outlook for inflation and its impact on monetary policy. We cover this reassessment and its impact on markets and investment conclusions in our new Vantage Point.
