Top Story: 4Q2011 Market Outlook & Strategy – Perilous crossroads; Challenging times ahead

Strategy Update

¨ The US economic recovery has slowed to a crawl, while Europe is not just lurching from one crisis to another, it is lurching into a new one before the previous one is solved. There is a growing risk that sustained weak confidence could exert downward pressure on demand and business activity worldwide. At this stage, both the US and Europe cannot withstand another shock and any further escalation of the crises could potentially tilt the global economy into a “double-dip” recession. Nevertheless, in our view, this can still be avoided if political leaders get their acts together fast enough to contain the debt crises and avert a contagion given that global trade has not fallen off the cliff.
