Markets Are Late Cycle, Says Macro Hive's Hafeez

US capital controls among 2020 ‘grey swan’ events, strategist says

The U.S. introducing capital controls in the wake of its trade war with China is among the top 10 “grey swan” events for 2020, according to Bilal Hafeez, the CEO of financial strategy firm Macro Hive.

‘Growth positive’ measures resonate for investors

Bilal Hafeez, a former currencies analyst at Deutsche Bank and Nomura, who now runs analysis hub Macro Hive says: “So far, most of the measures taken by Chinese authorities have been growth-negative (quarantines, travel restrictions), so the PBoC’s actions are perhaps the first that could be construed as growth-positive.”

This is not a recession, but just a long government-dictated public holiday

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) says it's the worst recession since the Great Depression. No, the worst in 300 years, says the Bank of England. And now this week, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) officially called the US recession as starting in February – an unusual move because they tend to define recessions periods after the event not at the beginning. Yet while the collapse in economic activity is clear, does it really feel like a recession?



We aim to deliver the best macro ideas. We strive to give a different angle and we like to challenge. We want to make our members stand out from the crowd. We do this by harnessing the experience of a network of leading thinkers led by Bilal Hafeez. We also embrace advances in machine learning to support the work, but we never lose site of the power of the human brain. Importantly, we look outside of our own work too. We scour the world for the best analysis whether academic work, blogs, or podcasts. We curate the best. Crucially, we present everything in an accessible form where you can get the key insights with minimum time. Now, it’s time for you to join The Hive.

We challenge the traditional research business model, the way you consume research and the way you think about investing
