And let's get back to Rajiv D'Mello, chair of the development, immediate mass from joining us from Singapore. We've been talking about some of your conviction calls, but the main focus here really remains. When do we see a vaccine? How do we see a vaccine roll out? With all of that in mind when it actually occurs. What sort of moves to we see here in bond yields and I notice is well that you're seeing a little bit of Ah, suppose you're in a negative position when it comes to the Dola. Bye, kids absolutely critical. We need to see some really good results coming out them. The candidate vaccines right now in the face three trials, which means large scale testing, so we could get some results by the end of the year. If things going real well, so that that's definitely a positive. Ofcourse, the rollout will be probably focused on healthcare workers. First broader role out will take longer into inter next year. But for markets that will definitely be positive effect. Now in terms of bond deals, Bondi of have very low And that's because central banks keeping policy very competitive on Dell's line back a lot of bonds as well. Yet we have seen the long and you'll start to creep up a bit. A CZ. The economic data is improved slightly on I mean, it's improving slightly on the year you're on your basis. But actually, what one sees is that on a month on month basis Come on, Reed is quite shop. But nobody is expecting a strong economy by all means, but it's definitely much less worse than it wasa Bania do have some room to grow up, and it's plenty supply companies have been assuring government issuing a lot on that'll put pressure on the longer end ofthe money of driving them slightly higher. On $2. We are negative on the dollar is a lot of things, which was put in a dollar over last couple of years, which unwinding somewhat examples such as the interest rate differentials. US field was significantly higher than yield in other countries. On that's coming down. Now that the Fed has cut rate is very competitive right now, where is the TV and the DOJ bank haven't really had any room to cut rates very much. They have me put in place using policy. But not to the extent that the U. S. Has the U. S. Has a couple of other worries such as elections, a cz well as changing the feds framework to keeping rates lower for even longer with increasing putting up a bit that scares us from the dollar. So, Rajiv, you're you're basically positive Here. It seems you've got on your conviction call list, even even some of the most troubled troubled areas like travel industry and hospitality and such If you do go with some pics in those areas. How long do you think you have to wait? When do we see some response from those stocks? Well for the photos really badly affected the ones you just mentioned. Travel industry, hotels, restaurants change there. We need to see some signs that the vaccine is coming on board. I think I'm positive because while we've seen infection, we'd go up..
