Breakfast Briefing – Global Economic Outlook: Recoupling Growth And Inflation

About

Despite economic recovery slowly shining through on advanced economies, the global outlook is not necessarily so bright. Investors still remain less favourable towards emerging markets, Abenomics is yet to be fully realised in Japan, and the European Central Bank recently intervened to help fight the threat of low inflation.

Join us at this thought-leadership event, where economists, family offices, portfolio managers and industry experts will provide a macro-thematic outlook on the global economy. Panellists will debate the prospects for international markets and the actions of policymakers, including:

  • Growth prospects and inflation worries in the US, UK and Eurozone
  • Where next for Abenomics and the Japanese economy?
  • Emerging markets and peripheral Europe: Opportunities and threats

Hear industry luminaries’ predictions on where best to allocate assets, gauge confidence levels and help you make the right decisions for your clients.

Attendance is complimentary for WealthBriefing members but places are limited.
