In Q4 2021, Steward Roberston Aviva expects growth to rebound in Switzerland. Despite recent concerns, the country has reaffirmed its commitment to the Paris Agreement. The PBC will continue to extend credit to commercial banks and put pressure on financial institutions to rein in shadow banking. The slowdown will hurt some asset classes, but the recovery will likely be gradual.
Global thematic investment manager Sarasin & Partners said it expects the first-half profit to fall by 68%, from 22.7 pence a year ago. The biggest jolt was the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in the largest contraction in annual growth rates since the Second World War. However, the company said its liquidity ratios remained strong and that it expects growth to return in the second half of the year.
The Swiss government has put forward its fiscal year 2020 as an opportunity for investors to invest in emerging markets.

While it is hard to predict how the market will respond, there is a good chance that the economy will bounce back in the second half of the year. Moreover, Swiss companies have a track record of delivering good returns to their shareholders.
