Back to work does not necessarily mean back to the office although diminishing Covid infections have allowed a rapid economic reopening in the US. “As we watch the economy accelerate, we can clearly see that populations in both the US and globally are returning to recreational activities far faster than they are returning to their offices,” notes Citigroup’s Global Wealth Investments Strategy Bulletin.
