According to the OECD’s latest forecast, the global economy is expected to contract by 4.5 per cent in 2020 as a result of the pandemic.

But the outlook is currently uncertain. The world economy entered the crisis already weakened, with high levels of indebtedness, persistently low interest rates, strong protectionist pressures and growing global frictions.

  • What sort of recovery can we now expect?

  • What policies, domestic and international, still need to be adopted to ensure a swifter and more widely-shared recovery?

  • What must policy-makers do to ensure the global economy emerges stronger and more resilient than it was when it entered into this crisis?

2021 is poised to be a year of cyclical transformations.

A pandemic-induced recession, much-anticipated elections in the US and Europe, a UK after Brexit, a post-Abe Japan regime and unprecedented government stimulus policies all will have left a significant mark on politics, economics and investments worldwide.

China’s perseverance with capital-market reforms, even as tensions with the US continue to rise, will add yet another important dynamic. All these pivotal forces will come to a head in 2021.

  • In such an unpredictable environment, what are the new investment opportunities and risks that will emerge across global markets and asset classes?

  • What should global investors focus on to enhance returns in the year ahead?

Watch this on-demand replay featuring investment leaders from some of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, the IFC and PineBridge Investments.
