Our latest monthly look back is a little longer than usual. Why? Because inflation is just one of the risks, but it’s a risk unsettling many investors who have become used to a low interest rate environment and who are trying to determine what this new normal may mean for them. We also provide a quick summary of January’s portfolio performance.
Watch the video to understand what’s happening based on our view of financial markets.
