Singaporeans' expectations for headline inflation for the year ahead has fallen, down to 3.9 per cent from 4.1 per cent last quarter due to a dampened growth outlook, according to this quarter’s Singapore Index of Inflation Expectations (SInDEx) results. SMU Assistant Professor of Finance (Education) and founding principal investigator of the DBS-SKBI SInDEx project Aurobindo Ghosh attributed the high inflationary expectations to the uncertainty arising from the continuing conflict in Ukraine, and shared how that has led to a rise in global oil prices and a potential slowdown in major economies. DBS Group Research is a co-sponsor and research partner with the SMU Sim Kee Boon Institute for Financial Economics (SKBI).
