A Quarter of Two Tales: Inflation Woes and Geopolitical Tensions

In our previous quarterly webinar, we discussed “Will Higher Inflation Pop the Equity Bubble?” 2022 started with a retracement in global/regional equity indexes, rotation from growth to value and higher market volatility. While investors were already dealing with a lot of uncertainty due to emergence of inflationary challenges not seen in decades, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has added to it.

Join this webinar where our experts will provide answer to questions like - What is driving significant rotation from growth to value? What does our Global Equity Market model tell us about rotation in style factors, countries, and industries? Are there hidden risks being uncovered by our crowding model? and many more…

In this webinar, we will also discuss the implication of de-globalization on asset allocation to find out how the conflict could affect global multi-asset-class portfolios and what potential impact does our stress-testing show in various scenarios – including Stagflation. To see if history provided any lessons, we take a longer view and see how market performance and volatility have been affected in historical episodes of war.
