This is meant to be the year when central banks pivot towards monetary easing, but there’s much uncertainty in markets around the speed with which inflation retreats, how economic growth will fare, and how fast and far policymakers will be willing to cut rates.
We’re delighted to invite you to join our economist team for this exclusive, in-person roundtable discussion about the key global economic and financial market issues which will shape 2024.
During this hour-long session, you and a select group of your peers will hear about the macro and markets outlook, get your questions answered, and participate in robust discussion with our economists as the team addresses key issues, including:
- How fast central banks will start to ease policy as signs of disinflation pile up;
- Whether equities will outshine bonds again this year;
- With its property sector in structural decline, how successful China will be in finding new sources of growth.
