  • Russell Investments has put out its 2021 third-quarter global market outlook report for the investment community. For the most part, their Q3 outlook resembles a continuation view that they had for Q2. Andrew Pease, Global Head of Investment Strategy for Russell Investments, stated the following:
  • "The global reopening remains on track as vaccination rates climb around the world. Inflation is the new concern, but the spike so far looks transitory. We still like the pandemic recovery trade that favors equities over bonds, the value factor over the growth factor, and non-U.S. over U.S. stocks."
  • Inflation, be it transitory or potentially a longer-term issue, continues to be at the front of investors' minds. Within the note that Russell Investments put out, they provided their viewpoint with regards to inflation.
  • "Our expectation is that the inflation spike is mostly transitory and that the major central banks, led by the Fed, are still two years from raising interest rates."
