The combination of unprecedented monetary stimulus, ongoing fiscal support and the end of COVID-related lockdowns can lead to the strongest surge in global economic growth in decades. Central banks have committed to maintaining stimulus even as western economies recover, which could lead to a significant surge in stock markets and other risk assets this year. While equity markets may be “overbought” in the short run, a greater risk to their performance may be an earlier-than-expected surge in inflation once the economic expansion is well underway.
