Conversation with Jean-Guy Desjardins & Monique F. Leroux
The early months of 2022 were filled with uncertainty. Today, the global economy is under pressure and continues to experience increased geopolitical tensions. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has increased the risk of a slowdown in global growth, as well as the risk of rising inflation, driven in part by the strain on supply chains and the cost of energy and raw materials.
Central banks are closely monitoring economic and geopolitical developments and have even started to raise interest rates. There is increasing talk of a recession and stock markets are extremely volatile.
Many say we are facing a perfect storm. What are the most likely scenarios and what is the best posture to take as an investor? What do the next few months hold for us? Monique F. Leroux discusses current events and preoccupations with Jean-Guy Desjardins in this 1-hour webinar.
