Industry Voice: Global equities - moving beyond the in between towards a new normal

As global vaccination programmes gather pace following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have seen economies slowly emerging from states of lockdown.

Office blocks once empty on the back of stay-at-home orders, underground carriages with no commuters, abandoned theatres and suspended air travel are areas slowly but surely coming back to life. At the same time, it's clear not all things will be going back to normal, as Covid-19 has accelerated trends at a very fast pace, be it a greater acceptance of working from home patterns, the fast adoption of technological innovations as well as vaccine/ medical breakthroughs.

Peter Rutter, Head of Equities at Royal London Asset Management considers the prospect of moving beyond the in between towards a new normal.
