BlackRock expects Fed to keep rising rates despite banking turmoil

Black Rock Inc. is an international investment company headquartered in New York. It is one of the largest investment firms in the world and the largest in the world in terms of assets under management. As of the end of 2022, its total assets under management amounted to $8.59 trillion.

According to BlackRock Inc., the US Federal Reserve will keep raising interest rates despite traders betting on rate cuts amid fears of a banking crisis.

The world's largest asset manager prefers inflation-linked bonds, securities that act as a hedge against rising prices. The company believes that markets are mistaken they expect the Fed to cut interest rates soon as the economy is heading into a recession. This time, things are different as Fed officials have made it clear that turmoil in the banking sector will not stop their fight against inflation, BlackRock Investment Institute strategists including Wei Li wrote in a client note.

"We don't see rate cuts this year – that's the old playbook when central banks would rush to rescue the economy as recession hit," BlackRock said. "Now they're causing the recession to fight sticky inflation and that makes rate cuts unlikely, in our view."

The company remains underweight in stocks of developed markets, the strategists added.

All this is happening at a time when the dollar is losing value:

BlackRock's position contrasts with that of TD Securities and DoubleLine Capital LP. They assume that the Fed is wrong about the need to keep lifting interest rates. After all, the economy is increasingly at risk of sliding into a recession. The collapse of several US banks and Swiss bank Credit Suisse Group AG this month forces a global rethink of the outlook for monetary policy. At the same time, this provokes the biggest fluctuations in Treasury bond yields in more than a decade.
