Equity earnings are expected to grow rapidly as we eventually exit the Covid-19 recession, but we forecast a modest long-term reduction in our expectations for equity earnings growth. However, in our base case, this is more than offset by the impact of a long period of much lower bond yields which boosts equity valuations. The result is attractive equity returns, particularly when compared to bonds. While the US (with its heavy technology and healthcare exposure) led the initial recovery, we expect regions with more cyclical exposures to benefit most in the next phase.
