DAILY VOICE | Mark Matthews of Julius Baer says some pull-back in Indian equity likely, but don't expect 10-15% sell-off

"IT is something we see as a multi-year positive theme, because COVID has moved those companies' clients to an even more digital environment," said Mark Matthews of Bank Julius Baer.

Mark Matthews, Head of Research Asia Pacific, Bank Julius Baer, feels that Indian market kept rising despite the 10-year US bond yield jumping from 0.5 percent in August to 1.7 percent now. Going ahead, we expect the yield to hit 2 percent by year-end, and that should be something the Indian stock market can take in stride.

As a member of the bank’s investment committee, he gives asset allocation recommendations to clients.

Matthews has been at Julius Baer since 2011. Through his 27-year banking and finance career, he has held senior positions managing the research and equity sales functions at financial institutions, including ING Barings Securities, Standard & Poor’s and Merrill Lynch in Asia.

Currently he is based in Singapore. Prior to this, he has worked in Hong Kong, Thailand and Taiwan.
