    Quants Corner - In 2021, backing those closest to the light

    By Vikram Srimurthy 21 Jan 2021

    Mapping fund flows to the progression of a truly global pandemic is something that EPFR – thankfully – has not had to deal with for most of its existence. But that changed with a vengeance last year, bringing with it lockdowns, stimulus checks, social distancing, closed borders and remote working. In this new social and economic environment different dots need to be connected to unlock value. This blog will explore one topical avenue, the link between individual country’s progress vaccinating their populations against COVID-19 – with the leaders presumed to be closer to a return to economic normality – and the flows into and returns for countries. The current poster child for this thesis is Israel, which is not only the leader in the global vaccination race but offers a secondary cyber-security expertise story that is playing well given recent revelations of hacking on an international scale...

    By Cameron Brandt 18 Jan 2021

    For several months now, investors have been buying into forecasts of a global economic rebound unleashed by widespread vaccination against the COVID-19 virus. Fears that inflation will also slip the leash when the rebound occurs took a backseat to the global reflation story. During the second week of January, this undercurrent of inflationary angst bubbled to the surface as markets factored in rising commodity and transportation costs, cash stockpiles in savings and money market accounts, the fiscal agenda of the incoming US administration and signals from the US Federal Reserve that the switch to a tightening bias could occur much sooner than previously expected. The week ending Jan. 13 saw EPFR-tracked Inflation Protected Bond Funds extend their current inflow streak to eight weeks and $8.7 billion, Bank Loan Funds record their biggest inflow since mid-2Q18, flows into Commodities Sector Funds hit a record high and Energy Sector Funds record their 12th consecutive inflow and largest in over 11 months.
