If bond yields continue their march higher, the most dangerous earthquake will happen in the global real estate market. If higher bond yields caused even a 10 percent decline in the $300 trillion global real estate market it would unleash a deflationary impulse equal to one third of world GDP. This would make any preceding inflationary impulse feel like a waltz in the park. For long-term investors who can ride out near term pain, there are three important conclusions:

  • The ultimate low in bond yields is still ahead of us.
  • The structural bull market in stocks will continue until bond yields reach their ultimate low.
  • Equity investors should structurally tilt towards ‘growth’ sectors that will benefit from the ultimate low in bond yields.

Dhaval Joshi will present his research, followed by a short interview with Craig Stobo and questions from the audience.
