With central banks expected to remain supportive of financial markets and moderate short-term political risks, our latest Global Outlook recommends that investors maintain an overweight allocation to equities over bonds, but shift from US stocks to European and emerging market stocks.

The report and video above highlight the synchronized upswing in global growth in recent months. The report sees a benign macro backdrop to the next three to six months, with European elections unlikely to lead to exits from the euro area. Moreover, despite concern that President Trump's policies would spark trade wars, events on the ground have moved more slowly.

This is the first time in several years that all of the world’s major economies – the US, China and the euro area – seem to be growing in sync. There is the prospect of upside surprises to our baseline economic outlook, and it is not yet time to fade the risk rally.
