2019, as does many a year, threw up some surprises. What is in store for 2020?

The US faces an election and is in the process of finalising trade terms with the second largest economy in the world, China. Europe too faces challenges given its largest economic contributor, Germany, only recently narrowly avoided a recession. Meanwhile, in the UK, markets initially moved higher after the Tory election win, but big battles over Brexit remain.

 

We talk through where we see opportunities and challenges for the year ahead. There will be time for listeners to pose questions to our experts after a short presentation.

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.
