Chief strategist: Equities to recoup losses in 2019

Don’t worry: Although the financial markets are behaving as if an economic recession is just around the corner, that’s not what Danske Banks Chief Strategist, Tine Choi, is expecting in her predictions in Quarterly House View Q1 2019.

We maintain our positive view on equities relative to bonds.
