Know what's moving the financial markets

WEF 2023, Davos

It's the first Winter Davos since January 2020, as officials from governments, public organisations, business and finance come together at the World Economic Forum Annual Summit 2023 to tackle multiple global crises guided by this year's theme: 'Cooperation in a Fragmented World'.

The Global Markets Forum reports live from Davos once again on the most pressing issues impacting markets, business and the world today. 

Inflation, growth and the path ahead for monetary policy

Central banks around the world have taken the battle against inflation head-on by quickly and firmly tightening monetary policy. Speculation continues on how much growth will get choked as markets seesaw on conflicting data points and commentary. Markets also have to deal with a delicate global economic and geopolitical environment as China unwinds its strict zero-Covid policies, and the Russia-Ukraine war rages on. Meanwhile, the collapse of crypto came almost as quickly as its meteoric rise, and increased regulatory scrutiny has only raised more questions about the future of this asset.

We will continue to discuss these topics on GMF as 2023 progresses. 

Clean energy

ESG is now firmly established as a must for investors, companies and regulators. As trillions of dollars are chasing ESG investments and companies are scrambling to be on the right side of the trend, regulators begin setting rules on investing and disclosures, scrutinising claims and bringing much-needed oversight to the market. GMF will track developments in climate transformation, including how investors set climate goals and their progress in meeting these targets.
