Evaluating Risks Posed by Inflation, Interest Rates & More
Has the nature of inflation fundamentally changed?
What does that mean for interest rate policy and other macro factors? What impact might this have on major institutional investors over the medium to long term?
Will the move towards a low-emission economy play a role in future volatility?
TCorp Chief Economist Brian Redican contends that no central bank or government may be able to safeguard investors from bouts of inflation volatility and geopolitical forces. As a result, the global economy may become an inherently riskier place to operate in.
Scenario Analysis & Total Portfolio Approach
Rather than predict where inflation, interest rates or even the US dollar will go, Brian investigates possible scenarios and their interplay with each other. This work is core to TCorp’s total portfolio approach that puts investment risk at the centre of its model, rather than a sole focus on returns.
In this luncheon co-hosted with JP Morgan Asset Management, we will hear how Brian makes sense of the various scenarios that could play out over the medium term.
