End of Year Global Equity Markets Report 2021
Written by Jamie Constable, Market Strategist at Singer Capital Markets
“Déjà vu” is a much used phrase, but as we come to the end of 2021, it has to be the first phrase written in this annual report!
Again, we start the report writing about Covid-19. Think back a year and the UK moved from Christmas being “normal” to lockdown over a matter of days. Travel was cancelled and shopping trips were hastily made to make sure households were able to put a Christmas meal on the table. Roll forward a year and Christmas 2021 seems to be attempting to replay the same drama – if the politicians and scientists are to be believed. What is the saying from Mark Twain? “History never repeats itself but it (often) rhymes” !
