Rising interest rates also bring opportunities

High valuation of equity markets: Based on Société Générale’s forecasts there should be corrections on the main global equity markets in the following 12 months.

The likelihood of stricter ECB monetary policy will rise: Higher interest rates should be negative on the stock market as a whole. However, companies with a healthier capital structure may not feel so strongly about their impact.

Commodity companies, carmakers and financial institutions in equity portfolios: These sectors have shown that they fare well in times of rising yields thanks to strong cash flow and low debt.
