EuroCham in collaboration with Rabobank cordially invites you to join Financial Markets experts, Michael Every and Jan Lambregts giving their valuable insights and outlook for 2019:
- Financial Markets Outlook 2019: “Puzzling Times, cubed” by
Rabobank’s Global Head of Financial Markets Research Jan Lambregts and Senior Asia-Pacific Strategist Michael Every.
As Nils Bohr once said, “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.” However, ten years into this global recovery there is more uncertainty about what the next year holds than for decades. Is the US economy set to boom on tax cuts or bust as the Fed keeps hiking? Can Europe survive the sunset of QE, and what will Brexit look like? And is China a source of stability or instability?
Moreover, can the global economy survive a trade war? And can global institutions survive the US’ new stance? The answers are like a puzzle.
