Stephan Werner, Portfolio Manager for Equity Income and Denise Kissner, Senior Investment Specialist Active Equity
it is clear that the low interest rate environment is likely to last for a few more years and that there will be no alternative, if not risk-free, to stocks for the DWS experts. Many stock indices are trading at record levels despite the pandemic and ongoing lockdown. Predicting the price development for 2021 is difficult and depends on many factors.
Based on the latest news and earnings forecasts from companies around the world, we expect the stock market as a whole to be a volatile year with low single-digit stock market returns. And even if dividend strategies have lagged behind the large US growth stocks in recent years, we are confident, that the bulk of companies around the globe are able to increase their dividend payments in 2021.
Thus, we cordially invite you to join our senior portfolio manager & Head of Materials Stephan Werner and our Senior Product Specialist Equities & LRA, Denise Kissner.
