Delta hitting expectations of alpha in early 3Q21

Flows into EPFR-tracked Bond Funds jumped to a 22-week high in early July as investors, already digesting mixed economic data from the US and China, wrestled with the implications for global growth of the worldwide surge in Covid-19 infections driven by the Delta variant of the coronavirus.

The latest spike in Covid cases has already crimped economic activity in China’s Guangzhou province, raised the specter of a second lost tourist season for Europe and prompted Japan to reimpose a state of emergency in Tokyo. It is also giving US consumers and businesses another reason to be cautious about spending the capital and savings they stockpiled during the pandemic. The US personal savings rate remains well above its pre-pandemic level and much of the cash that flowed into EPFR-tracked US Money Market Funds last year is still there.
