Quarter end investment webinar: is inflation on the turn?

Inflation was the big story in 2022 as central banks battled to rein it in with interest rate hikes. US inflation appears to have peaked, but geopolitical pressures remain. Will 2023 see more of the same?

The overriding theme of 2022 was inflation and how to tame it. Central banks faced the challenging task of trying to rein it in without subduing economic activity. As we start the new year, US inflation appears to have peaked, but investors continue to examine each economic release and what it might mean for interest rates. Geopolitical pressures also prevail as the Russia/Ukraine conflict lurches on, and China begins to reopen its economy following its zero-COVID lockdowns.  So will 2023 see more of the same?

 

Join our Chief Investment Officer, Tom Caddick, and Investment Counsellor, Rebecca Cretney, as they examine the key events of 2022 and their impact on financial markets. We discussed what this could mean for investors over the coming months and how our portfolios are positioned to respond. Watch our 45 minute webinar on demand.

Clients of Nedbank Private Wealth can get in touch with their private bankers to understand how their portfolios are responding to market events, or answer any questions prompted by the webinar. You can also call +44 (0)1624 645000 and speak to one of our client services team.
