The financial markets have behaved positively in the first part of 2023, despite the episodes of high volatility that have been experienced in some sections of the year.

For the second semester, Ibercaja foresees that the uncertainties about the behavior of the financial markets will continue. “The forecasts do not anticipate great growth in the economies, being, on the contrary, their slowdown the most probable scenario. In addition, inflation and the consequent intervention by central banks will continue to mark the evolution of the environment”, they point out.

Given this uncertainty, together with the levels reached by interest rates, the bank recommends taking positions in fixed income, both public and private. Specifically, the tranches of up to two years would be “especially interesting” for savers and investors who want to obtain attractive returns with little volatility.
