David Lundgren, CFA, November 8, 2021

Welcome to the Markets and Economic Update, provided by the Hancock Whitney Asset Management team as an informational resource for clients and individuals who are interested in hearing our perspectives on current economic issues.

 

Markets and Economic Update

 

Each month, senior leaders of Hancock Whitney's Asset Management team discuss the latest news and events that impact markets and the economy. Topics covered on this month's call include:

  • Commentary on the latest from Washington D.C., including the Infrastructure bill, reconciliation, the debt ceiling, and proposed tax changes.
  • 3rd Quarter GDP fell short of expectations. We take a look at some of the reasons why, and share our expectations for 4th Quarter growth.  We also discuss global supply frictions and the impact to growth and inflation.
  • October was a great month for stocks. The team discusses equity returns in detail and what we should expect going forward.
  • A conversation on surging inflation and the response from central banks around the globe; where rates are headed; and the likelihood that Jay Powell will be confirmed to remain Chair of the Federal Reserve.
