The great exit
With a shaky global recovery from COVID-19 due to new variants and central banks trimming relief measures, uncertainty remains over inflation, geopolitics and a host of other factors.

Together with industry experts and peers, we debate all the pressing issues, brainstorm our own strategies and share valuable takeaways to help you create an informed opinion on the future of the markets.
