Market analysts predict that a tighter monetary policy will see a shift of investors towards fixed income securities as they seek to capitalize on discounted treasury bonds.
According to the Zan Securities Chief Executive Officer Raphael Masumbuko, “Allocation of liquidity to fixed income securities will crowd out equity activities in the coming weeks. However general expectations of higher bottom line for FY’22 will drive prices of respective counters upwards in the early stages of next year,”
He added,” With system liquidity being constrained by a tight monetary policy cycle we see potential opportunities in stocks with strong fundamentals and attractive entry points,”
