CIO Strategy Bulletin ꟾ Sep 25, 2022 By Citi Wealth Insights

A Fed Too Far? Positioning Portfolios for What’s Ahead

In this week's Bulletin, we look at the opportunities in investment grade and US government bonds that are, perhaps, the only ones we see in the near term.  We can envision that the Fed will reverse policy later in 2023 after several months of major employment declines.


We also consider the troubling trajectory for the US economy if the Fed persists. We see the probability of a US recession next year at 70% and we expect a material fall in employment. The pain inflicted on households and small businesses will have lingering negative impacts into 2024.

The Expansion will endure: Seeking sustained returns

The hope that 8 billion vaccinations and widespread population exposure to the Delta variant would be sufficient to subdue COVID-19 turned out to be false when Omicron struck. At the same time, Citi analysts became convinced that, for 2022 and 2023, the global economic recovery that is now underway will endure and ultimately outlast the pandemic. In short, we believe the world economy and equity markets have not peaked and have room to grow.
