For the past decade, the deflationary economy has driven bond yields lower creating the perfect environment for high growth stocks to flourish. This backdrop saw growth stocks outperform value stocks, with the US leading the growth charge while Europe lagged. As inflation soars and rates rise, could this be the turning point for value to finally outperform growth with Europe leading the way?

Are we witnessing the perfect reverse?
