Trump win highlights new, populist-led era - Old Mutual Investment Group

Following Donald Trump’s shock win in the US elections, the world’s attention has shifted to what extent his proposed policies will be implemented and the implications for global markets. This is according to Peter Brooke, Head of Old Mutual Investment Group’s MacroSolutions boutique, who believes that the world is entering a new, populist-led era, meaning a pull back from globalisation and a move towards more isolationist policies.


The case for SA VAT hike economically solid, says Old Mutual Investment Group

While concerns around global growth and pressure on the SA economy have eased recently, the local economy is still fragile.  Moody’s decision not to downgrade SA’s sovereign rating at this stage was a welcome surprise, but the risk of a downgrade to junk status by any, or both, of the other two major ratings agencies remains an ever-present threat. However, South Africa can still avoid a ratings downgrade to junk status provided fiscal consolidation is strictly adhered to and confidence- and growth enhancing economic reforms are implemented without any further delay.
