New KKR Global Insights Report Discusses Value Creation through Reflation

New KKR Global Insights Report Discusses Value Creation through Reflation

KKR today released a sequel to its 2021 Global Macro Outlook, “Another Voice,” by Henry McVey, Head of Global Macro and Asset Allocation (GMAA). In the new macro Insights piece, McVey and his team detail an increased conviction about the macro framework for 2021 and beyond, specifically delving into the topics of inflation and reflation.

“When we pull all the macro pieces together, we see a constructive environment for collateral-based cash flows where we get reflation without runaway inflation, as this synchronized global economic recovery continues to unfold,” said Henry McVey.

In the report, McVey updates the team’s macro and asset allocation framework to reflect the following conclusions:

  • We are in the early stages of an economic recovery that will look quite different from that which occurred starting in 2009.
  • Nominal growth will run above trend for the foreseeable future, driven by a stronger than expected consumer and a rebound in non-tech related capital expenditures.
  • While cyclical inflation is expected, we do not believe a secular increase in inflation is upon us.
  • We expect the value of the illiquidity premium to increase as real rates generally stay low, helping to suppress nominal rates too.
  • From a portfolio construction perspective, we advocate for more of a cyclical bias that favors pricing power and is connected to global growth and hard assets.
