Anthony Shorrocks, Credit Suisse Economist and Report Author:

“Given the damage inflicted by COVID-19 on the global economy, it seems remarkable that household wealth has emerged relatively unscathed.”

 

Nannette Hechler-Fayd’herbe, Credit Suisse Chief Investment Officer for International Wealth Management and Global Head of Economics & Research:

“Although 2019 was a year of incredible wealth creation, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a sobering reminder of the danger of exogenous shocks to the global economy.

Unlike the financial crisis of 2007-08, there is reason for optimism this time around, as the global financial sector is much healthier than it was then. Governments and central banks have also learned the importance of credit arrangements and quantitative easing during a severe crisis … … Among the major economies, China is likely to be the clear winner.”
