Macroeconomic shifts are expected to gain more strength in a new era of global central bank asset reduction and elevated geopolitical risks across the world. These changes are likely to have a direct impact on multi-asset class investing. In addition, the roles of traditional and non-traditional asset classes are likely to be questioned in this environment as investors continue to seek diversification benefits in a constantly evolving global investing landscape.
A distinguished group of investors and research practitioners share their experiences in implementing global macro investing strategies, and how they aim to produce prudent risk-adjusted returns.
