Credit Suisse Private Banking: Focus on Asia's domestic demand and structural growth themes in 2012 as Euro debt crisis muddles through
Credit Suisse Private Banking Research recommends a defensive investment strategy for 2012 as sovereign debt risks and global growth concerns will continue to dominate financial markets in the coming year. With domestic growth moderating, inflation easing and the outlook for global growth deteriorating, there is room for moderate monetary easing in Asia. Going into 2012, Credit Suisse Private Banking division recommends to overweight equities and alternative investments and to underweight bonds and cash as the Euro debt crisis is expected to muddle through with the global economy in a sluggish expansion phase rather than in a recession. Investors are advised to diversify among carefully selected equities, credits and alternatives and focus on domestic demand and structural growth themes in Asia. Credit Suisse Private Banking division continues to favor Asian equities and to stay overweight China, Hong Kong and Indonesia, which are domestic driven markets with policy easing potential.
