2018 MARKET OUTLOOK WEBINAR

Global growth with guardrails

As global economies experience a remarkably stable expansion, there is no shortage of investment opportunity. But while investors are putting money to work, they also need to prepare portfolios for potential risks. Geopolitics, possible rising inflation, and uncertain monetary policy can expose vulnerabilities in this low-volatility regime.

On December 11th, Salim Ramji, Head of U.S. Wealth Advisory, moderated a Q&A with BlackRock Founder, Chairman and CEO Larry Fink about his perspective on the coming year, including what’s on the minds of investors around the world.

Philip Vasan, Head of Investments and Portfolio Solutions, then moderated a discussion with Chief Investment Strategist Richard Turnill, Head of Income Investing for Multi-Asset Strategy Michael Fredericks, and Portfolio Strategist Patrick Nolan to uncover opportunities while guarding against the risks that abound.

Topics discussed included:

  • The continued case for global growth and our preference for risk assets
  • The potential impact of geopolitics and quantitative tightening on markets
  • Trends we’ve observed across advisor portfolios – and their implications
  • Answers to live, viewer-submitted questions
