Middle East conflict overshadows IMF forecasts again

Article by Simon Landt

When the International Monetary Fund (IMF) presented its updated forecasts a good six months ago, the economic assessments were overshadowed by the attack on Israel by the radical Islamic group Hamas. Around six month later, the IMF's forecast update is once again overshadowed by the Middle East conflict. In response to the Israeli airstrikes on the Iranian representation in Damascus at the beginning of April, Iran attacked Israel directly with drones and missiles last weekend, fueling fears of further escalation. 

In the current issue of "Economic Situation and Strategy" you can read wether investors should change their tactical asset allocation and what the IMF's forecasts look like in detail.
