Looming concerns over economic growth

How the economic landscape in the second half of this year will develop or which direction the capital markets and growth are heading remains anyone’s guesses.

So far, there had been some bright spots in the first three months of the year to buoy confidence levels – and drive early optimism – but there is a question mark with regards to their ability to sustain over the rest of this year.

Moreover, there are also some nascent emerging risks that should make investors feel some disquiet, according to Standard Chartered’s (StanChart)(Singapore branch) global chief economist David Mann.

The fact that global growth has improved despite rising tail risks is not an indication that investors should be resting on their laurels for now.
